Jamal, making his Test debut, disclosed his plans to remove Head and Warner with well-executed short deliveries, succeeding in getting them out after a substantial partnership. He expressed his improved rhythm in the second spell, crediting the team’s plan for the dismissals.

Additionally, Jamal highlighted his previous experience playing in Australia in 2017, emphasizing the challenges of playing against the Australian team.

Looking ahead, Jamal stressed the importance of claiming quick wickets with the second new ball on day two, emphasizing the bowlers’ prowess and their strategy to exploit any aggressive batting from the opponents.

David Warner’s stunning 164 runs on the opening day of the Test showcased his dominance and silenced critics. Warner’s aggressive innings, including 16 fours and four sixes, set the tone for Australia’s commanding total of 346-5.

Warner’s innings were marked by consistent performance, reaching his half-century swiftly and slowing down slightly after lunch to secure his 26th Test century. Despite Jamal’s crucial breakthroughs, Warner’s powerful display was a highlight of the day.

Warner acknowledged the pressure on him and the criticism he faced, expressing his satisfaction in answering critics through his performance on the field. However, he credited the opposition’s bowlers for capitalizing on opportunities and taking crucial wickets.

Khawaja, Labuschagne, and Smith contributed to Australia’s total before their dismissals. Head’s quick 40, ended by Jamal, also stood out, as Australia ended the day on a strong note despite the Pakistani bowlers’ improved performance after lunch.

The second day’s play is anticipated to be challenging, with Jamal highlighting the team’s intentions to capitalize on the early morning conditions to dismiss key Australian batsmen.
