A minute of silence was observed at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns, in the memory of victims of yesterday’s plane crash, before the warm-up match between Pakistan and Australia’s CXI.
A Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight crashed into a hillside after one of its two turboprop engines failed while travelling from the city of Chitral to the capital, and burst into flames killing everyone on board.
After winning the toss and deciding to bat first Pakistan stands at 62 runs at the loss of three wickets.
This three day and night warm-up match is the only one to be played before Pakistan’s three Test and five one-day match series against Australia.
