Lunch: Pakistan off to a great start against Australia on day one

Aaron Finch will make his Test debut against Pakistan on Sunday

When Day One of the first Test between Pakistan and Australia went underway in Dubai on Sunday, a rare instance in Test cricket was witnessed in which the captains of both the teams - Sarfraz Ahmed and Tim Paine -were wicketkeepers.

The first day of the first test which started at Dubai International Stadium in Dubai on 7 October 2018, was a day of fluctuating fortunes.

Chasing their first series win in Asia since 2011, the visitors have named three debutants in Aaron Finch, Travis Head and Labuschagne.

Meanwhile Bilal Asif gets his maiden Test cap for the hosts Pakistan. At stumps, Pakistan were 255 for the loss of three wickets with Haris Sohail, 15* and night watchman Mohammad Abbas at one* on the crease.

Lyon looked risky from his first ball with Marnus Labuschagne appearing to chastise himself after failing to get his hands on a half-chance at bat-pad.

Australia were allowed to keep their remaining review, however Pakistan were able to build on a solid first innings, standing at 4-341.

Sohail did to get to three figures though, hitting a six off spinner Jon Holland before cutting him to third man for two to complete his century.

The partnership was finally broken just after tea when spinner Nathan Lyon had Imam caught behind for a Test-best 76, and Hafeez fell seven overs later for 126 when he was trapped lbw by Peter Siddle.

"It´s always a big pride to score a Test hundred for your country and I have worked really hard to reach this far", said Sohail, who was sidelined for a two-year period with a knee injury in 2015. Starc then finished off the innings catching the outside edge of Shah's bat for 3 as Pakistan lost their last six wickets for 72 runs.

Peter Siddle's early wicket of nightwatchman Mohammad Abbas propelled the 33-year-old ahead of Merv Hughes as Victoria's most prolific Test paceman and the ninth-most successful Australian quick with 213 dismissals. At the other end, back-to-back boundaries by Shafiq against Jon Holland took Pakistan past the 400-run mark.
