Australia vs Pakistan Highlights, 3rd Test: Australia new-ball bowlers Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood struck in their respective first overs to send back both the Pakistan openers for a duck and then captain Pat Cummins dismissed Babar Azam and Shaud Shakeel to leave Pakistan reeling in the third and final Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Mohammad Rizwan and captain Shan Masood got together to make sure there was no further damage till the end of the first session. In the second session, Pakistan lost captain Masood to Mitchell Marsh but Rizwan continued on his merry way to get to a well-deserved half-century. He fell 12 short of his century as Cummins for the breakthrough. The Australian captain got a couple more to complete another five-wicket hail. Just when it was looking like one-way traffic Amer Jamal stood tall and smashed 82 to take Pakistan past 300.
