Pakistan lose Hafeez after Abbas wrecks Australia

Tim Paine

The fourth wicket, two balls later, was the pick of the quartet, with Babar Azam bowled for nought after wafting an ill-advised shot at a perfectly pitched delivery to leave Pakistan teetering on 57-5.

Pakistan will start their second innings on 144 for two on the third day of the second Test against Australia in Abu Dhabi.

But Abbas ensured Pakistan ended the day on top as he took out Usman Khawaja (3) and Peter Siddle (4), checking Australia's hopes of a straightforward follow-up to the epic draw of the first Test.

Australia's Nathan Lyon takes a reflex catch from his own bowling to dismiss Fakhar Zaman of Pakistan during day two of the second test match at Sheikh Zayed Stadium. The umpire didn't think it was an out, but Pakistan had it reviewed.

The Test series against Pakistan is Australia's first since the ball-tampering scandal that erupted in South Africa earlier in the year.

Australia's punishment for a diabolical morning is the prospect of another full day in the field, with Pakistan having three days left to secure what in all likelihood will be series-clinching victory.

The Sabarimala temple doors would be closed on October 22 after the five-day monthly prayer during the Malayalam month of Thulam. Liby said she would climb the hills and no one had the right to violate the freedom granted by the Supreme Court .

Fakhar hit eight boundaries and a six in his enterprising knock as he and Sarfraz added 147 runs before he was trapped lbw by leg-spinner Marnus Labuschagne (3-45).

When he claimed his 50th wicket in his 10th Test on Tuesday, Abbas became the joint-second fastest to achieve the feat from Pakistan alongside the legendary Waqar Younis, Asif and Shabbir Ahmed.

Leg-spinner Yasir made it 75-5 with the wicket of Mitchell Marsh, caught close to the wicket for 13 before Australia lose two more to reach lunch at 91-7. "If we score 100-150 runs more on Thursday then with a turning wicket we have a very good chance of winning this Test". Jason Gillespie recorded this instance in England's second innings during the 1998 Perth Test match.

The second Test between Pakistan and Australia started on October 16 from 11:30 AM. Pakistan made two changes from the first Test, handing Test caps to Zaman and pacer Mir Hamza, leaving out injured Imam-ul-Haq and out of form fast bowler Wahab Riaz.

However, Pakistan were indebted to debutant opener Fakhar and captain Safraz who each scored 94 to help their side reclaim the advantage in the afternoon session.
