Pakistan will start day four with their two top scorers from the first innings, Muhammad Rizwan and tailender Aamer Jamal,  at the crease, desperately needing them to put together a big partnership. Pakistan lead Australia by only 82 runs with just three second-innings wickets remaining in the Third Test at Sydney Cricket Ground after a series of collapses in the evening session of day three. Australia lost their last five wickets for 10 runs, to give Pakistan a first-innings lead of 14. But Pakistan started their second knock by losing two wickets for one run, rallied to 58-2, then lost five wickets for nine runs.

The three-match series has already been decided, after Australia won the first two tests by 360 runs and 79 runs respectively. What is left at stake is World Test Championship points – victory in Sydney would move Australia into a top-two spot with South Africa.

For Pakistan the Sydney test match is also another chance to end their run of consecutive test losses in Australia. This run has now extended to 16 matches over more than 28 years. If Pakistani fans are seeing some glimmer of optimism, Sydney was the scene of Pakistan’s last test victory in Australia, in November 1995.
