Pakistan Needs 180 Runs to Beat Australia in Second Cricket Test

July 23 (Bloomberg) -- Pakistan needs 180 runs to defeat Australia and tie their two Test cricket series after bowling out the opponents for 349 runs at Headingley in Leeds.

Australia got 77 runs from both Michael Clarke and Steven Smith to build the 179-run lead after starting the day trailing by 34. The pair helped settle the batting attack after Pakistan’s Mohammad Ammer took the wickets of captain Ricky Ponting (66), Michael Hussey (8) and Marcus North (0) in the morning.

Australia was all out for 88 runs in its first innings, while Pakistan reached 258. Australia had won the toss and decided to bat, having taken the series’ first match by 150 runs.

The series is being held in England because of security concerns over staging games in Pakistan. It counts as a home series for Pakistan.
