Fakhar, Shadab help Pakistan brush aside Cricket Australia XI

Pakistan kicked off their Australia tour with an easy six wicket win over Cricket Australia XI. Chasing a middling score of 134, Pakistan were home comfortably in 17.5 overs.

Cricket Australia XI captain Chris Lynn won the toss and elected to bat 1st. The returning giant Mohammad Irfan took out Opener RJ Gibson on the first ball of the match. However, Lynn and Fraser-McGurk stabilized the innings with a 40-run partnership. However, they fell in quick succession falling to Wahab Riaz and Imad Wasim respectively.

Nathan McSweeney hung around for his 30 but Shadab Khan whose form has been patchy lately floored the opposition with three wickets. Beside the leggie, Mohammad Irfan was super impressive going for under 5 runs per over.
