Pakistani wicket-keeper Kamran Akmal came up with an exciting take on Australian skipper Tim Paine's after his horrible outing show. The skipper did not have a good Test match in Sydney. In the first innings, the batsman was dismissed by Bumrah for just one run. Despite that, he was also involved in an ugly fight with Ravichandran Ashwin. The Australian skipper received a lot of backlash from the cricket fraternity and the fans as well. Tim Paine dropped as many as three catches on Day 5 of the SCG Test.

Sunil Gavaskar also stated that the wicket-keeper should be removed as the Australian captain after the series conclusion. However, the Indian side grabbed all the attention as they showed a lot of grit and character in their second innings. The batting line-up managed to stand up to the Australian bowlers. The visitors also ended the match in a draw.

Kamran Akmal also believes that the men in yellow have worked really hard and put in all the effort that was required, but they could not win. The wicket-keeper further stated that he is happy that Tim Paine is not playing for the Pakistan team. If Tim had played for the Pakistan team, he would have to deal with a lot of disgrace.

The 39-year-old mentioned that the Australian fielding had let them down in the just concluded test match. Additionally, he reckoned that the Australians' most remarkable quality is that they do not make many errors in the field. However, the hosts made all their mistakes on a single day. He also put forward that Paine had a bad outing with the gloves. The Pakistani cricketer ended the discussion stating that if men in yellow had sealed all their chances, they would have been celebrating now.

On the contrary, the Indian cricket team had a mammoth target of 407 on Day 5 of the 3rd Test. Ajinkya Rahane and Co. managed to earn a hard-fought draw. This mainly due to a brilliant 97-run knock from the wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant. The strong defensive knocks from the middle order batsmen Cheteshwar Pujara, Ravichandran Ashwin and Hanuma Vihari also helped the team to end the clash of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in a draw.
