The first Test between Australia and Pakistan saw a thriller finish as the game ended in a draw. The result can be said in favor of Australia as Pakistan were favorites to win the game. The tourists had to bat nearly 140 overs to save the game and did so with only two more wickets in the kitty.
Pakistan spinner Yasir Shah had nearly given a mini heart attack to the Aussies as he picked up three wickets which made the game intense.
After removing Usman Khawaja (141) who batted for 524 minutes, Shah picked up Mitchell Starc's wicket or you can say Babar Azam got him. It was more of Azam's wicket than Shah's.
The Pakistan batsman was fielding on forwarding short-leg and took a stunning catch to dismiss Starc. This happened in the 128th over of the fourth innings and Twitter was enthralled by the effort.
Here is how they reacted:

WHAT A CATCH! WHAT A MAGNIFICENT CATCH BY BABAR AZAM!— Muhammad Waleed (@M_Waleed_Shaikh) October 11, 2018
BEAUTIFUL CRICKET. DARING. ATTACKING. SHARP. BEAUTIFUL!#PAKvsAUS
Can't stop thinking about that last Babar Azam catch, our beautiful boy just leapt backwards, shot his arm out, and caught that ball behind him at about a 2-yard distance from the batsman. #PAKvAUS #Cricket— Mustafa Hameed (@MustafaHameed) October 11, 2018
