Live updates:

89/1 (15.0 overs)

Australia lead by 312 runs with 9 wickets remaining

Australia 538/8d

Pakistan 315 all-out

Half of the day's play was lost due to rain. Finally, play resumed at 2:35 p.m. local time.

The visitors lost two quick wickets when the team total was just six, but soon, Azhar Ali and Younis Khan steadied their ship, as they built an unbeaten partnership of 120 runs.

Earlier, Australia who batted first declared their first innings when their score reached 538. Three Australian players, Matt Renshaw (184), David Warner (113) and Peter Handscomb (110) hit centuries for their side. For Pakistan, Wahab Riaz picked three wickets, while Imran Khan and Azhar Ali grabbed two wickets each.

The third day of the game will be quite crucial in determining the fate of this encounter. Aussies will be trying to knock out the Pakistan team before their score reaches 300. The surface in Sydney is pace friendly, and it gives the hosts an upper hand, as they have some quality seamers like Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood in their lineup.

On the other hand, Pakistan's hope lies on the shoulders of Azhar Ali and Younis Khan.

Both these batsmen combated the Aussie pace attack with ease in the second day, and the same is expected from them on the third day too.

Yasir Shah suffered a hamstring strain in his left leg when he was chasing a ball near the boundary line.

Hope he bats today.
