On a fiercely-contested day of Test cricket, Pakistan ended up being the happier camp at the draw of stumps in Lahore on Monday, March 21, after staging a fine comeback in the final session. The hosts were put under the pump after Steve Smith and Usman Khawaja stitched a century stand to frustrate them on what appeared to be a sluggish surface at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. The duo batted for over 50 overs and added 138 for the third wicket and appeared to usher Australia in control in the series decider.
