Live Score PAK vs AUS Live Score 2nd Test Day 5: Hello and welcome to our live coverage of Pakistan vs Australia 2nd Test Day 5 from Karachi. Skipper Babar Azam has a big challenge ahead of him to convert his century into a massive score to script a historic win over Australia. With 8 wickets in hand, Pakistan needs 314 runs to win on the last day. While Australia will look to take quick wickets on the final day to strengthen their position in the game.
Azam’s first Test hundred in two years and Abdullah Shafique’s 71 led Pakistan’s resistance after Australia set up a huge target of 506 on day four Tuesday of the second Test.
Babar was unbeaten on 102 off 198 balls and opening batter Shafique followed his maiden Test hundred in the drawn first Test with an undefeated 71 off 226 balls to take Pakistan to 192-2 at stumps.
Pakistan still needs an improbable 314 runs to achieve a world record run chase on the last day or survive the remaining 90 overs to deny Australia taking a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
