Pakistan on top of Aussies in Dubai Test

Pakistan on top of Aussies in Dubai Test

The last time the sides met in the UAE in 2014, Pakistan won 2-0. Australia handed Test caps to Aaron Finch, Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne while Pakistan included off-spinner Bilal Asif for his first Test at the age of 33.

A brilliant 150-run partnership between Haris Sohail and Asad Shafiq put Pakistan in a very strong position at tea on the second day of the first Test against Australia in Dubai.

If an lbw appeal shows the point of impact between the stumps and pads is more than 2.5 metres, an umpire's decision can not be overturned.

Australia's most prolific offspinner continued to ask questions of the Pakistani openers but Holland made a nervous start to his Test return, going for eight off his first over and conceding an Imam six over midwicket in his fourth over.

Although Khawaja and Finch survived until the close, the Australian batsmen face a stiff test against Pakistan's spinners on a pitch already showing signs of turn.

Labuschagne then had Babar Azam (four) run out shortly after tea with a pinpoint throw from midwicket which left Babar well short of his crease.

The heavy rainfall could lead to "life-threatening flash floods and mudslides", the National Hurricane Center warned . An Air Force hurricane hunter airplane was sent into the storm to investigate, the hurricane center said.

It was a welcome change of fortunes for Lyon after he was earlier foiled by the DRS.

Paine called for a review and replays showed the ball was projected to hit the wicket but the umpire's call could not be overturned because Sohail was too far down the pitch.

Resuming overnight at 3-255, both Sohail and Shafiq batted resolutely with Australia captain Tim Paine delaying the second new ball until lunch with Pakistan moving to 4-329.

Former Test batsman Mark Waugh said on Fox Sports he would have taken the new ball after four overs.

Peter Siddle did pick up a couple of wickets to finish with three for 58 but it was a long day of toil for Australia, who closed on 30 without loss in reply.
