From the top of the world, Pakistan came crashing down.
Pakistan legspinner Yasir Shah, who conceded over 200 runs at over five to the over in the Boxing Day Test, has said he had bowled the wrong length at the MCG
Nathan Lyon began the fifth day at the MCG uncertain of his place in the side for the Sydney Test. By the end of play, he stepped back from the precipice with a spell that set the tone for Australia's unlikely win
Dismissals, drops, catches, trends, they all came together to form a tune that would haunt Pakistan for a long time
