Azhar Ali's Comical Run Out Against Australia Leaves Twitter in Splits

Australia 20-2 in reply to Pakistan's 282 in Abu Dhabi Test

The first Test ended in a draw in Dubai last week.

Pakistan, who won the toss and opted to bat, were bowled out for 282 in their first innings on the first day of the second Test in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, Debutant opener Fakhar Zaman and Sarfraz missed hundred by six runs each but still revived Pakistan on the first day, after Pakistan found themselves reeling at 57/5 having won the toss and made a decision to bat first.

Azhar Ali sat at 54 not out as Pakistan took control of the second test against Australia on day two.

"Yes, our position is good", said Fakhar.

His absence will necessitate changes to the batting order with Fakhar Zaman the only other specialist opening batsman in the squad, although he is yet to make his Test debut at the age of 28 and not played a first-class match in more than a year.

Mohammad Hafeez, who scored a hundred in the drawn first Test, fell to a lazy shot off pacer Mitchell Starc, caught at short mid-off for six.

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

Australia cricketer Nathan Lyon bowls during day two of the second Test cricket match in the series between Australia and Pakistan at the Abu Dhabi Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi on October 17, 2018. Mitchell Starc played a little cameo of 34 runs in the end of the innings to guide the total to 145. Abbas became joint second-fastest Pakistani to the milestone of 50 wickets with Waqar Younis, Mohammad Asif and Shabbir Ahmed.

Sarfraz's bowlers were unable to put concerted pressure on the visitors with Khawaja reverse sweeping leg-spinner Yasir Shah seemingly at will on a pitch that was deteriorating and offering assistance to Pakistan's four slow bowlers.
