It seems very difficult for Pakistan to make a comeback in the match. Pakistan is playing with a fairly young team and for subcontinent players Australian conditions are always a nightmare. Pakistan team will really have to work really hard to restrict the Australian inning on a chase able score.
Pakistani young pacer attack will have to come back strong with confidence if Pakistan wants to stay in the match because if the things went the same way as they went today than it is impossible to get back in the match.
