A meek wicket meant that the batsmen had it all their way in the first exchanges, which went down in history as the first ever Test to feature three consecutive century opening partnerships. 

That said, while Abdullah Shafique, Azhar Ali and Imam-ul-Haq (twice) scored centuries, nobody in the Aussie ranks managed it, with Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne coming closest.

Most concerning of all for Pat Cummins was that Australia took just four wickets in total across 239 overs, while allowing 728 runs. Is Mitchell Swepson the answer? He could become the first specialist leg spinner to play Test cricket for Australia in over a decade, which would also serve as a fitting tribute to Shane Warne.

The suspense is mounting, so follow our guide for all the details you need to find a reliable 2022 Pakistan vs Australia Test live stream and watch every session online from anywhere.
