The Early Jolts

In the opening day of the Perth Test, Pakistan faced criticism for their fielding performance. Debutante Aamer Jamal’s third over provided an early opportunity when Usman Khawaja mistimed a shot. Unfortunately, Abdullah Shafique at first slip failed to secure what seemed like a routine catch, allowing the ball to escape for a boundary.

David Warner’s Centurion Escape

The fielding nightmare continued as seasoned campaigner David Warner went on to score his 26th Test century. However, he offered Pakistan a chance for redemption. Agha Salman tempted Warner to go for a big hit, but Khurram Shahzad’s dropped catch not only spared Warner but also resulted in a boundary.

Babar Azam’s Missed Stumping

The comedy of errors reached its peak when Agha Salman induced a false shot from Warner in the 64th over. Sarfaraz Ahmed missed a stumping chance as the ball bounced off his shoulder, landing in the hands of Babar Azam at first slip. Azam’s attempt to run out Warner failed, adding another comedic episode to Pakistan’s fielding miseries.
