Australia’s trouble in the game of cricket continues in Dubai as well. They were punched back by the brilliance of the debutant, Bilal Asif in batting-friendly conditions in the first Test. Earlier, Bilal Asif’s inclusion in the Pakistan team raised a lot of controversies, as few analysts felt, he doesn’t have enough goods with him to deliver in the Test format.

However, Asif answered all the critics with his performance. He rattled the wickets of Australia in quick succession to put Pakistan on top of the game. However, Bilal Asif picked up a six-wicket haul to his name.

Bilal Asif’s magic turns it for Pakistan:

Initially, it was all about Australians on day three of the game. Aaron Finch and Usman Khawaja batted superbly to keep Pakistani fielders chasing the leather more often than not. The duo walked back to lunch without hurting Australia in the wickets column.

However, it was Bilal Asif, who picked the debutant Aaron Finch to give the breakthrough for Pakistan. Then came Shaun Marsh and Mitchell Marsh to the crease, who also walked back without troubling the scorers.

They were quickly followed by Travis Head, who registered a golden duck on his debut. Usman Khawaja, the highest run-scorer for Australia in the innings missed his century by just 15 runs.

All of a sudden, the scorecard which read 142/1 fallen down to 183/7 in a matter of time. Bilal Asif, who is making his debut at the age of 33 years marked the occasion with the six-wicket haul. On the other hand, Muhammed Abbas’s four-for helped Pakistan fold Australia for 202.
