In a challenging start to the third Test against Australia in Sydney, the Pakistan team faced a setback, being bowled out for 313 runs after opting to bat first upon winning the toss.

The national squad encountered a turbulent beginning as both openers were dismissed without scoring, and by lunch, four wickets, including skipper Shan Masood for 35, had fallen. The struggles continued with Abdullah Shafiq, debutant Saim Ayub, Saud Shakil, and Babar Azam falling for low scores.

Notably, Muhammad Rizwan showed resilience with an impressive 88, while Agha Salman contributed 53 runs. However, the team faced a collapse as all-rounder Aamir Jamal scored 82, and the lower order struggled against Australian captain Pat Cummins, who claimed five crucial wickets.

Australia had a brief batting stint, playing one over before the end of Day 1. David Warner, in his farewell Test at the Sydney Cricket Stadium, faced Sajid Khan and managed to score six runs.

Adding to the emotional tone of the match, Shan Masood and his team paid tribute to David Warner by forming a Guard of Honor, marking the conclusion of the Australian opener’s illustrious Test career, which encompassed his 112th Test match.

In a strategic move for the final Test, Pakistan made changes to the lineup, introducing Test debutant Saim Ayub as the opening batsman in place of Imamul Haq. Additionally, fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi was omitted, and Sajid Khan took his place.
