Cricketer Yasir Shah has scored his maiden Test century in the second Test match against Australia at Adelaide.

According to the details, Yasir Shah, executing the remarkable performance against the Kangaroos on their home ground has scored his maiden test century with 12 remarkable boundaries.

Babar Azam once again reinforced his standing as Pakistan s talisman with 97 runs and 11 marvelous boundaries this time, but couldn’t complete his century on Day 3.

The troubled team Pakistan was trailing by 320 runs against Australia.

Azam displayed his maximum batsman capabilities for recovering Pakistan out of massive trail set by Australia but was caught by Aussie skipper Tim Paine in the over of Mitchell Starc.

Babar Azam and Yasir had resumed on 96 for six in reply to Australia’s declared first innings total of 598 for three.

They frustrated Australia’s bowlers for most of the session but Starc broke Azam and Yasir’s 105-run partnership at the start of a new spell, having Azam caught behind for 97.+

Starc dismissed Shaheen Afridi lbw on the next delivery with a Yorker, and the tail-ender threw away a referral which confirmed he was trapped plumb in front.

Yesterday, an irrepressible David Warner smashed an unbeaten 335 on Saturday while Steve Smith became the fastest man to 7,000 Test runs as Australia took control of the day-night second Test against Pakistan.

He took a single off Muhammad Musa to reach 7,000 runs in his 126th innings, taking possession of a mark held for 73 years by English great Wally Hammond who reached the milestone in his 131st innings.

Smith also moved past legendary countryman Donald Bradman s 6,996 Test runs to become Australia s 11th highest scorer.
