Pakistan vs Australia, 2nd Test: Fakhar Zaman misses hundred in Pakistan's fightback

Fakhar Zaman- AFP file

Pakistan has made a decision 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). Australia kept the same eleven from the drawn first Test in Dubai while Pakistan replaced injured Imam-ul-Haq and Wahab Riaz with Zaman and Mir Hamza. The record is held by team-mate Yasir Shah who completed 50 wickets in nine matches.

Marsh made 94 in a lead-up game against Pakistan A, as well as two centuries during the one-day tour of England, but he is undoubtedly in a Test slump.

Abbas then trapped Siddle to finish on 9-2.

Lyon finished with 4-79 while leg-spinner Marnus Labuschagne took 3-45.

Dennis Hof, Famous Nevada Brothel Owner, Dead at 72
Campaign manager Chuck Muth on Tuesday announced news of Hof's passing on his Twitter account. Ron Jeremy was there. "He was having the time of his life'".

The 30-year-old wreaked havoc on Pakistan's top order on the first day as he took four wickets for no runs in six deliveries to reduce Sarfraz Ahmed's side to 57 for five after they had won the toss and elected to bat at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

Ahmed was, by far, more aggressive, and kept the scoreboard moving with constant rotation of the strike before his 129-ball knock was ended in which he hit seven boundaries. After his below-par 15-run innings and weak wicketkeeping in the first Test which ended with his team unable to turn a strong position into a victory, Sarfraz faced calls for his sacking as Test captain.

Sarfraz was frustrated to miss his fourth Test hundred but happy with the fightback.

Lyon was brought on after Pakistan had seemingly consolidated their innings after losing opener Mohammad Hafeez early on to Mitchell Starc, and provided instant results for Tim Paine.
