    The Boxing Day Test in Melbourne between Pakistan and Australia has produced several impressive performances till now but on Thursday, the crowd were witness to hilarious scenes as a section of fans danced to Hasan Ali’s moves. During the action on Day 3, Ali was fielding at the boundary and he decided to try out some dance moves. The spectators behind him did not hesitate and they also joined in with the Pakistan cricketer. Ali ended up doing a couple of moves that the fans replicated and at the end of it, he applauded the fans for their effort. The video of the entire incident has already gone viral on social media.

    Mitchell Marsh hit a counter-attacking 96 in a fighting rescue mission with a dogged Steve Smith to help Australia build a 241-run lead and regain control of the second Test against Pakistan.

    The hosts were reeling at 16-4 after dismissing Pakistan for 264 in reply to their first innings 318 in Melbourne.

    But Marsh and Smith put their heads down to compile what could be a match-saving 153-run partnership.

    At stumps on day three, the hosts were 187-6 with Smith out for 50, off 176 balls, in the last over of the day, leaving Alex Carey unbeaten on 16.

    Shaheen Shah Afridi and Mir Hamza both took three wickets.

    It could have been a different story but Abdullah Shafique spilled a regulation catch in the slips when Marsh was on 20.

    Marsh eventually fell four runs short of a deserved century, but it took a superb one-handed diving catch at slip from Agha Salman to remove him.

    “Obviously that one hurts at the end,” Marsh said of Smith’s dismissal. “But from 16-4, if you’d told us we’d have a 240-run lead at the end of the day, we’d take that.

    “It’s evenly poised,” he added. “As we saw, I think there’s still enough in the wicket so add a few more runs tomorrow and we’ll give it our all.”

    After Cummins took 5-48 and Nathan Lyon 4-73 to dismiss Pakistan, Australia needed to negotiate a tricky 15 minutes of the morning session.

    But Usman Khawaja was out for a duck second ball, caught behind by Mohammad Rizwan off bowling spearhead Afridi.

    The same combination struck again when Marnus Labuschagne edged down the legside on five as the hosts slumped to 6-2 at lunch.

    When they returned, David Warner let rip with a drive to the boundary off Afridi, but he didn’t last, dragging a Mir Hamza ball onto his stumps on six.

    He received a standing ovation as he walked off for the last time as a batsman at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, with the third Test in Sydney set to be the last of his long career.
