Pakistan and Australia are engaged in an intense Test match battle in the second game of this three-match series. The match is being played in front of the home crowd at the Karachi Stadium. Now that the final day of this Test match is upon us, let us take a look at the best of the betting tips from the PAK vs AUS 2nd Test Day 5 head-to-head clash.
Who would have thought we will witness two Test matches out of the three going into Day 5 already? Australia have dug deep here in Pakistan and are making the hosts work their sweat off to avoid a defeat in this second Test match. Australia have set Pakistan a mammoth target of 506 runs and Pakistan are 192/2 at the end of Day 4. Babar Azam scored a century for the first time since February 2020 to keep their hopes alive. Abdullah Shafique, who is being treated as a young Pakistani prodigy, has batted well to score 71* runs. Australia have the new ball in their hands and the morning session will dictate the terms of the course for this game. While we cannot wait for Day 5 action to kickstart, let me present to you the top betting tips from the PAK vs AUS 2nd Test Day 5 head-to-head encounter.
There are no team bets at the moment that are lucrative and that is exactly why we are going to settle with the player bets from Day 5 of this ongoing Test match between Pakistan and Australia.
The 22-year-old opener from Sialkot is being considered as one of the brightest talents from Pakistan. Although, he is yet to prove his mettle in extreme conditions and situations but up until now, the right hander has done really well with the bat. But we need him to score less than 103.5 runs in this knock. I know he has already added 71* runs to his name but Shafique has scored over 73 runs only once in 7 Test innings so far in his career. In four matches so far he has scored 414 runs at an average of 82.80. In two matches so far in the ongoing calendar year, Shafique has scored at an average of 87.00. The average is just hovering around the marks that I have mentioned above. The first hour of this play will be absolutely crucial and with Australia having the new ball, things could change drastically tomorrow. Pari Match is offering brilliant odds of 1.87 for Abdullah Shafique to score under 103.5 runs in the PAK vs AUS 2nd Test Day 5 match prediction.
The Pakistan skipper had to wait for more than two long years to score a hundred in the longest format of the game. Babar Azam scored a gritty hundred and took to the Australian bowling as the ball went older through Day 4. He was not enjoying a great batting average against Australia prior to the start of this knock and now he has pushed that to 38.86. He has played 7 matches in Pakistan and has scored 701 runs at an average of 87.62. As the skipper of this Pakistani Test outfit, he improved his average and pushed it to 42.14 after today’s knock. However, in the fourth match innings, Babar has only maintained an average of 30.90. Batting at number four for Pakistan, the Pakistan captain has enjoyed a batting average of 55.76. In the second match of any Test series, the right-handed batsman has maintained an average of 52.77. But most importantly, he has never scored more than 143 runs in Test cricket. Pari Match is offering odds of 1.87 for Babar Azam to score under 145.5 runs in the PAK vs AUS 2nd Test Day 5 match prediction.
Oh well, we are back with Abdullah Shafique yet again as he can make us quite a lot of cash tomorrow. The 22-year-old prodigy has done well in the longest format of the game but we are going to depend upon his boundary-hitting ability. In seven innings so far, Shafique has managed to hit 35 fours and that is an average of just 5 fours per knock. In four innings so far against Australia, the right-handed batsman has managed to clobber 23 fours and that again is less than 7 fours per knock. In the last Test series against Bangladesh, Shafique hit 12 fours in three innings and that is an average of 4 fours per innings. In the fourth match innings, he has an average of 6 fours per innings. As of now, he has smashed just 4 fours in his current knock and it does not look like he cannot hit 8 of them tomorrow. Pari Match is offering odds of 1.75 for the same in the PAK vs AUS 2nd Test Day 5 match prediction.
