… Pakistan 410 runs short of their unlikely victory target of 465.By Nick MulvenneySYDNEY, Australia (Reuters) – David Warner clubbed the second fastest half -entury in Test history to help fire Australia to the verge of a 3-0 series sweep over Pakistan at the Sydney Cricket Ground yesterday.The tourists were 55 for one at close of play on the rain-disrupted fourth day of the third Test, still 410 runs short of their unlikely victory target of 465.In-form opener Azhar Ali, who had made 11 not out, and nightwatchman Yasir Shah, unbeaten on three, were at the crease at stumps, after debutant Sharjeel Khan had chipped the ball to a midwicket fielder for 40 off spinner Nathan Lyon.Warner needed just 23 balls to score his half-century — two more than the record set by Pakistan skipper Misbah-ul-Haq against the Australians in Abu Dhabi in 2014 — to help the hosts knock off 241-2 before declaring after tea.Steve Smith (59), Usman Khawaja (79 not out) and Peter Handscomb (40 not out) also poured on the runs after Warner was dismissed for a swashbuckling 55 off 27 deliveries.“The way the guys batted today, especially Davy of course, to get those runs as quickly as possible and do some pretty unselfish batting, got us in the position we are in now,” said paceman Josh Hazlewood, who took 4-55.“The wicket’s still pretty good, but I think there’s enough there to create nine more chances, if it’s reverse swing or spin.”Earlier, after the opening session was washed out for the second day in a row, Younus Khan completed an imperious 175 not out before running out of partners as Pakistan were dismissed for 315, still 223 behind Australia’s first innings 538-8.Australia started the day with the bad news that they had lost opener Matt Renshaw for the rest of the match because of a concussion after he was hit on the helmet while fielding on Thursday.WARNER BLITZKhawaja opened in his place but spent his first 40 minutes mostly a spectator as Warner, who on Tuesday become the first batsman to score a century in the opening session of a Test in Australia, again laid waste to the Pakistan bowlers.Warner slapped a four over midwicket from the first ball he faced and had added 10 more boundaries by the time Wahab Riaz removed his off bail some 42 minutes later.In one stunning over, the left-hander smashed spinner Yasir for two sixes and two fours from the first four deliveries before adding a single off the fifth for good measure.Younus’ knock had, by contrast, been a necessarily gritty affair as his team collapsed around him.The 39-year-old, who on Thursday completed a set of centuries in each Test-playing nation, batted for 443 minutes and faced 334 balls, scoring 18 fours and three sixes.Pakistan had resumed on 271-8 after the rain delay and thwarted the Australians for more than an hour until Yasir (10) and Imran (0) departed within three balls of each other.“We want to finish this Test series on a good note, so I think it will be better for us if we show some fight,” Younus said.“It will not be easy because (its) the fifth day … in Sydney and they have two spinners and good fast bowlers as well. It is our wish that we finish this Test match on a good note.”AUSTRALIA 1st innings 538 for 8 decl. (M. Renshaw 184, D. Warner 113, P. Handscomb 110) PAKISTAN 1st innings (o/n 271-8)Az.
