Captain Pat Cummins had ended Australia's second innings at 227 for 3 shortly after tea in a bid to ensure plenty of time for his bowlers on a pitch playing tricks but is not a minefield. The declaration dangled a carrot to Pakistan, who defied the odds during their remarkable chase of 506 in Karachi when they finished at 443 for 7 from 171.4 overs.
278 runs scored, ten wickets shattered, draw, or a tie!? It sets up a thrilling fifth day.
Update: History was on Australia's side and they won by over a 100 runs.
