Abu Dhabi Test: Pakistan bowl out Australia for 145

Abu Dhabi Test: Pakistan bowl out Australia for 145

He also claimed Tim Paine's wicket.

Debutant opener Fakhar Zaman and skipper Sarfraz Ahmed each scored 94 after Pakistan won the toss and opted to bat at Sheikh Zayed Stadium.

Azhar Ali has thrown away his wicket with one of the most baffling and embarrassing run outs in recent cricket history.

Day 2 began with Australia 20/2, 262 runs behind Pakistan.

Australia faces the challenge of overcoming a 137-run first innings deficit.

Ahmed was, by far, more aggressive, and kept the scoreboard moving with constant rotation of the strike before his 129-ball knock was ended in which he hit seven boundaries.

"It's just insane", former Pakistan batsman Ramiz Raja said on commentary.

Where will be the second Test between Pakistan and Australia be played?

The 20-year-old Shadab, however, is battling a groin injury that ruled him out of the first Test and which thwarted coach Mickey Arthur's plans of combining him with Yasir to attack Australia's inexperienced batting line-up.

He was six runs from a century on debut when Labuschagne, not given a bowl until just before tea, trapped Zaman leg before wicket on the stroke of tea.

Marsh nicked an Abbas ball to Haris Sohail in the slips on three to continue a lean run which now extends to 11 innings. Abbas dismissed Siddle to take his 50th Test wicket. Muhammad Abbas' five-wicket haul helped Pakistan dominate.

Aaron Finch fought a lone hand in just his second test before falling for 39 with none of Head, Mitch Marsh or Paine able to go the distance.

Sarfraz's bowlers were unable to put concerted pressure on the visitors with Khawaja reverse sweeping leg-spinner Yasir Shah seemingly at will on a pitch that was deteriorating and offering assistance to Pakistan's four slow bowlers.
