Pakistan v Australia: Confusion as mysetrious rule denies Australia vital wicket

Australia will play the fourth Test against South Africa at Wanderers in Johannesburg

Shafiq joined Sohail in the middle and both batsmen were cautious against the Australian bowlers, as Pakistan added just 19 runs in the first hour.

Haris Sohail struck his maiden global century as Pakistan piled up 482 runs in their first innings on Day 2 of the first Test against Australia in Dubai on Monday.

Sohail and Shafiq ensured Pakistan built on a solid foundation laid by opener Mohammad Hafeez who made 126 on an opening day.

Preview: It was yet another attritional, old-fashioned day of cricket at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium and by the end of it Haris Sohail's maiden Test ton ensured Pakistan held the aces when stumps were drawn on Day 2 of the first Test between Australia and Pakistan on Monday. He along with Imam-Ul-Haq gave Pakistan a flying start as they were 89 for no loss at lunch.

But it was a day highlighted by Asif who triggered a memorable Australian collapse against spin in Asia.

But the second session belonged to Asif, who dismissed Usman Khawaja (85), Shaun Marsh (7), Travis Head (0) and Marnus Labuschagne (0) in the space of 29 runs.

Mexican Sergio Perez took best of the rest honours for Force India in seventh while Romain Grosjean was eighth for Haas. Red Bull boss Christian Horner put it even more bluntly when asked to assess Vettel's rush of blood.

In a spell of 22 balls Asif took four wickets as Australia slumped to 180-5 by tea.

Khawaja hit eight fours before miscuing a premeditated sweep and was caught at short leg while Finch had five boundaries and a six in his knock.

Bowling: Starc 30-11-73-0; Siddle 26-11-47-2; Lyon 50-12-108-1; Holland 26-1-112-1; Labuschagne 4-0-17-1; M Marsh 10-0-38-0.

Earlier in the day Finch was more confident as he punched two boundaries and a six off Yasir before sweeping Asif for a boundary to reach his half-century.

But Sarfraz Ahmed's side, now leading by 325, remain strong favourites to take a 1-0 lead in the two-match series ahead of the second Test in Abu Dhabi next Tuesday.

It was for the eighth time in Test cricket both the captains also kept wickets and the last time this happened was in September 2014 - Denesh Ramdin and Mushfiqur Rahim at Gros Islet.
