Australia have secured their 16th consecutive Test victory over Pakistan on home ground, winning by 79 runs on the fourth day despite a resilient effort from the tourists. The player most responsible for the win was Patrick James Cummins, who recorded a second career ten-wicket haul to lead Australia to victory. Other notable contributions included Mitchell Marsh’s batting heroics and Alex Carey’s solid second-innings performance. However, Travis Head had a disappointing match, while the rest of the team showcased a mix of scores. Overall, it was Cummins’ outstanding performance that secured the win for Australia in the second Test.
