During the ongoing Boxing Day Test between Australia and Pakistan, Pat Cummins delivered a remarkable caught-and-bowled dismissal to break a dangerous partnership. It was a reminiscent moment of Cummins’ past performance against Azhar Ali in Lahore last year. Unlike his previous catch, Cummins this time held onto the ball without tossing it away.
Abdullah Shafique drove aggressively, prompting Cummins to dive and secure the low catch, tumbling over in celebration afterward. This wicket left Pakistan at 2-124, setting the stage for Babar to step onto the crease.
Shortly after, Babar Azam fell victim to Cummins’ exceptional delivery, pitching on a length outside off, nipping in to breach Azam’s defense and rattle the stumps.
Australia, batting first, wrapped up their innings at 318 runs during the lunch session on the second day. Despite Marnus Labuschagne’s solid 63 runs, the Australian side encountered a challenging period, losing seven wickets for 131 runs in an exciting session filled with rain interruptions during the previous day at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. The pitch continued to assist seam bowlers with lateral movement, offering an engaging contest between bat and ball.
