Pakistan vs Australia, LIVE cricket score, 1st Test, Day 2 at Dubai

Pakistan had beaten Australia 2-0 in their last Test series in the UAE in 2014.

(Dunya News) - The first Test match of two-match series between Australia and Pakistan ended in draw as Australian skipper Paine defied odds to survive almost fifteen overs with the tail.

At stumps, opener Usman Khawaja was batting on a fighting 50 and Travis Head on 34 as the pair had added an invaluable 49 for the unbroken fourth wicket stand to prolong Australia´s resistance on a tired and spinning Dubai stadium pitch.

Australia had gone into lunch with 137-0 on the board, but just moments after the break Finch lost his wicket to Mohammad Abbas for 62 runs.

Pakistan opener Imam-ul-Haq, 22, has been ruled out of the second and final test after breaking his finger while fielding during Australia's second innings on Thursday.

"People think because of my relaxed nature. that I've been gifted to be able to get to where I am", he said.

Khawaja and Finch had a tricky spell to get through and though both Yasir and Hafeez appealed to have the latter trapped in front, he survived through to stumps.

But it was Finch and Khawaja in the afternoon session who batted with resolve.

If the tourists are to pull off a victory they will have to surpass the highest chase in test cricket by West Indies, who managed 418-7 against Australia at Antigua in 2003.

The two shared an unbeaten partnership of 49 runs for the fifth wicket to ensure Australia end the fourth day with some hope of saving the Test.

Pakistan could have had Head leg-before off leg-spinner Yasir Shah on 44, but Sarfraz did not review English umpire Richard Kettleborough´s not out decision when replays showed the ball hitting the wickets.

Pakistan in their first innings scored 482 runs with Muhammad Hafeez and Haris Sohail making tons. At stumps on day three, Pakistan was at 45-3 with a lead of 325 runs.

Shafiq took a particular liking to Jon Holland, moving into the 70s with back-to-back fours off the spinner, yet he was gone for 80 next over as debutant Marnus Labuschagne claimed just his 13th first-class wicket by finding an outside edge which Tim Paine gathered with a sharp take.
