Steve Smith has described the Rawalpindi pitch as dead with the Test all set to end in a draw. While Pakistan had two batters registering daddy hundreds, Australia have had two batters dismissed in the 90s while Cameron Green missed out on a half-century and Smith himself scored 78. As Australia tour Pakistan after a long gap of 24 years, there's a notion that the teams and fans have been deprived of an intense contest due to the benign nature of the track.
