Pakistan's worst collapse, and a new Asian high for Australia's quicks

Pakistan's bottom six contributed only seven runs as they lost their last four wickets without adding a run

4 Runs added by Pakistan for the loss of their last five wickets in Lahore, the fewest for Pakistan in a Test innings while losing their last five wickets. Their previous fewest was five runs against South Africa in their first innings in Cape Town in 2003.
7 Runs contributed by Pakistan's Nos. 6 to 11 in the first innings in Lahore, the fewest by Pakistan's bottom six in an all-out Test innings. Their previous lowest contribution was eight runs against Australia during their second innings in the 2004 Perth Test.
0 Runs added by Pakistan while losing their last four wickets. It was only the tenth instance of a team losing their last four wickets at the same score in a Test innings. Pakistan's only previous instance was against England in 1967, when they went from 140 for 6 to 140 all out in their first innings at Trent Bridge.
5 for 56 Pat Cummins' figures in Pakistan's first innings. He is only the fourth fast bowler from Australia to bag a five-wicket haul in Test cricket in Pakistan. Cummins' bowling figures are also the best for an Australian quick in Pakistan since Graham McKenzie's six-wicket haul in 1964.
9 Wickets shared by Australia's opening pair of Cummins and Mitchell Starc. It is only the second instance of Australia's new-ball pair sharing nine wickets in a Test innings in Asia. Geoff Dymock (5) and Rodney Hogg (4) also shared nine wickets in India's first innings of the Kanpur Test in 1979.
1 The nine wickets between Starc and Cummins are the most by Australia's fast bowlers in a Test innings in Pakistan and the joint-most in a Test innings in Asia. Their fast bowlers have picked up nine wickets on five previous instances in Asia. Their previous best combined haul in Pakistan was eight wickets in both innings of the Rawalpindi Test in 1994.
