Missed Opportunity for Pakistan as Australia Escapes MCG’s Swinging Conditions

Pakistan suffered due to dropped catches and failure to target the stumps. Despite rain, Australia managed to reach 3-187 on the first day. The tourists had early chances but could not capitalize. The rain delayed the game for over 3.5 hours, but a sizeable crowd stayed. The match is set to favor Australia, unless Pakistan’s bowling improves. The game could follow a similar script to the series opener if Pakistan does not improve.
