Pakistan started the day 4 at Headingley with confidence. Ben Hilfenhaus started the bowling attack for Aussies. Azhar Ali played good and reached his maiden Test Fifty. But he got out soon to leave Pakistan at 146 for loss of 4 wickets. After that Aussies bowled well and kept on pressurizing Paksitan. Aussies were somehow successful in doing so as they were able to get some wickets. At one stage Pakistan were about to win this match by 9 wickets. But Australians made a great comeback today and Pakistan were 161 for loss of 6 wickets. At this stage, Kamran Akmal smashed 3 boundaries to guide Pakistan to a better end. Kamran Akmal was sent back to pavilion by Johnson when Pakistan required just 1 run to win. Umar Gull played the winning shot for Pakistan as Pakistan beat Australia after 15 years by 3 wickets. What a match it was and what a win for a side that has gone through so much trouble in recent times. Fifteen long years have passed since Pakistan defeated Australia in 1995 and they have finally managed to do it in their 'home' series. Australia have shown that they are tough fighters who gave the them a tough fight till the end with a whole new dimension. It has been a great start for new captain,Salman Butt, who took over the command of team after Afridi's sudden retirement from Test cricket. Pakistan have leveled the two match series 1-1 and go into the upcoming series against England with confidence. This was the last Test match for Rudi Koertzen and he was presented with a souvenir T-shirt by the Pakistan team. Rudi Koertzen was awarded with a bronze statue of his replica by match referee Chris Broad. Shane Watson is the Australian Man of the Match for his first innings haul of 6 wickets for just 33 runs. However, Mohammad Aamer is Pakistan's Man of the Match for his brilliant bowling display in the match.
