Pak vs Aus: Pakistan inch closer to victory

Pakistan inch closer to victory as Mohammad Abbas ripped through the Australian top order on day four of the second Test against Australia.

Needing 491 runs to win the match, Australia started their second innings on 47 for one before Abbas took four wickets in the morning session to send Aaron Finch, Travis Head, Mitchell Marsh and skipper Tim Paine back to the pavilion.

Chasing a target of 538 runs, Australia still needs 455 runs with five wickets in hand.

No team has ever chased more than 418-7 to win a Test, made by the West Indies against Australia at Antigua in 2003.

On Thursday, Pakistan grabbed an early wicket after Babar Azam struck a fluent 99 while skipper Sarfraz Ahmed followed up his first-innings 94 with 81 as Pakistan declared their second innings at 400-9.
