1187 runs for the cost of just 14 wickets. Australia's historic first Test in Pakistan since October 1998 wasn't a bright advertisement for the longest format of the game as the match ended in a drab draw. Occasionally, Lyon found a sliver of turn to trouble the left-handed Imam-ul-Haq who scored centuries in both innings. Marnus Labuschagne, the part-timer, too extracted a bit of purchase but there wasn't much assistance for the spinners even on Day 5. Both sides would hope for a sporting wicket at Karachi, where the second Test is set to take place from March 12.
