Pakistan batsman run out while having a chat

Abbas, who was also Player of the Series in Pakistan's previous Test series in England, said the key to his success was understanding the conditions, keeping it simple while bowling wicket to wicket, and waiting to take advantage of reverse swing.

Pakistan has chose to bat first against Australia after winning the toss in the second Test at Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday with the arrival of Fakhar Zaman and Mir Hamza as two debutants (being telecast on PTV Sports Live).

Seamer Mohammad Abbas then put Pakistan on top at the end of the day by dismissing Usman Khawaja for 3 and nightwatchman Peter Siddle for 4 on the last ball of the day to leave Australia 20-2 in reply.

With eight wickets in hand, Pakistan are in a great position to force a 1-0 lead in the two-match series after the first Test ended in a fighting draw in Dubai last week.

Imam scored an impressive 76 in a 205-run opening stand with Mohammed Hafeez that set up Pakistan's first innings of 482.

Fakhar hit seven boundaries in an enterprising knock.

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

Marsh nicked an Abbas ball to Haris Sohail in the slips on three to continue a lean run which now extends to 11 innings.

Hamza bowled one over late in the day, but Abbas got both strikes, getting Khawaja caught behind down the leg side for his 50th test wicket, and trapping Siddle. Mitchell Starc played a little cameo of 34 runs in the end of the innings to guide the total to 145.

What are the squads for the second Test between Pakistan and Australia?

Leg-spinner Yasir Shah added insult to injury when he provided another breakthrough in shape of Mitchell March (14) and left Australia 75/5.
