Australia set Pakistan 490 for victory


Pakistan were in a backs-to-the-wall struggle to save the day-night first Test as Australia took a strangle-hold on the third day on Saturday and declared second innings closed at 202 for five .
At the close, the tourists were hanging in at 70 for two with Azhar Ali not out 41 and 112-Test veteran Younis Khan yet to score after facing 19 balls. Pakistan trailed by 419 runs. Pakistan on Saturday lost two wickets of Sami Aslam and Babar Azam for 15 and 14 respectively.—Agencies
