Australia bats first in the second innings. Pakistan is put to the test.

On Saturday, Australian captain Pat Cummins won the toss and elected to bat against Pakistan in the second Test in Karachi.

The visitors withdrew fast bowler Josh Hazlewood from the first Test lineup and gave leg-spinner Mitchell Swepson his Test debut to improve their spin attack.

Pakistan recalled frontline paceman Hasan Ali and allrounder Faheem Ashraf, who both missed the first Test due to injury, in lieu of Iftikhar Ahmed and Naseem Shah.

The third and final Test will be held at Lahore, Pakistan, from March 21 to March 25.
