Social Media Reactions
Pakistan are still looking good for a big score with lot of batting still to come. Australia will be hunting for quick wickets on the morrow. Pakistan will be aiming at getting 400 or more runs to play it safe. This will also give the Pakistan spinners a good handle on Australia.

Lot of people asked if it is first time both captains (Sarfraz and Paine) are also keepers in a Test. It is actually 8th time but first time involving Australia or Pakistan. #PakvAus
