PAK vs AUS, 2nd Test, Day 2 Live Updates: Usman Khawaja continued his rich run of form on Day 2 of the ongoing second Test against Pakistan at the National Stadium in Karachi. After resuming play from his overnight score of 127, Khawaja has crossed the 150-run mark as Australia continue to pile runs against Pakistan. Nathan Lyon, had joined Khawaja as a nightwatchman after Steve Smith (72) had got out ahead of stumps on Day 1, scored fine 38 before being dismissed on 38 by Faheem Ashraf. Khawaja will look to take Australia to a big total but would need a helping hand. Earlier, David Warner (36) and Marnus Labuschagne (0) had got out on quick succession. For Pakistan, Hasan Ali and Faheem Ashraf have taken a wicket each. Pakistan will hope to roll over Australia as early as possible on Day 2. Initially, Australia had won the toss and elected to bat.

Pakistan all-rounder Faheem Ashraf was on Wednesday ruled out of the second Test against Australia, starting Saturday, after testing positive for COVID-19 upon his arrival in Karachi. Faheem, who also missed the first Test due to a fitness issue, arrived with the home squad and was forced into a five-day isolation after returning a positive test.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said if required, a replacement will be named for Faheem soon.

The Australian team also reached Karachi amidst heavy security and was driven straight from airport to the hotel.

Both teams will have their full practice sessions at the National Stadium on Thursday morning.

Promoted

Pakistan were also without pace bowler Hasan Ali for the first Test as he was also unfit while fast bowler Haris Rauf who was named in the initial squad couldn’t play after testing positive for COVID-19 in Rawalpindi.
