After three poor days, Pakistan bounced back but finds itself in a losing position chasing an improbable target of 422. The tourists finished the fourth day’s play at 170 for 3 with a promising partnership between Mohammad Yousuf (45) and Umar Akmal (27) in progress. Pakistan have a fair chance of winning the game and also saving it but Australia are favourites to win.
Earlier in the day, left arm quick Mohammad Aamer captured a five-wicket haul to trouble the Aussies who declared their second innings at 225 for 8. Shane Watson notched up his maiden century scoring 120.
