Pakistan ended the second day of the Abu Dhabi Test with a lead of 281 runs. 

Azhar Ali and Haris Sohail will resume the innings on the third day on Thursday. Fakhar Zaman and Azhar Ali scored half-centuries for the hosts.

The Australian batting order struggled against Pakistan and lost all wickets at 145. Muhammad Abbas’ five-wicket haul helped Pakistan dominate. The Australian team just lasted 50 overs.

The last wicket was that of Starc’s to fall – trapped leg before wicket. The umpire didn’t think it was an out, but Pakistan had it reviewed.

Bilal Asif took the wicket of Aaron Finch in his first over. He also claimed Tim Paine’s wicket.

Yasir Shah dismissed Mitchell Marsh with a delivery that took some turn to get the outside edge.

At lunch, Australia trailed by 191 runs.

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