Pakistan amass 482 against Australia on 2nd day of first Test
October 8, 2018
DUBAI (92 News) – Pakistan were at 482 for all on the second day of the first Test against Australia in Dubai. After starting second day of match, Australia took just four and half overs to strike on day two as night watchman Mohammad Abbas departed for just one run. Haris Sohail and Asad Shafiq dug their heels in as Pakistan inched their way towards and then beyond 300, with the loss of just their nightwatchman Mohammad Abbas, restoring their commanding position in the Test. Pakistan got off to a strong start against Australia, reaching 255 for loss of three wickets at lunch on the first day of the series-opening test match. Veteran all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez, playing his first test since 2016, led the run-feast with a knock of 126 - his 10th Test hundred – during a 278-minute stay at the crease and put on 205 runs for the opening stand with Imamul Haq, who made a career best 76. Opener Mohammad Hafeez celebrated his recall with an impressive century and Pakistan were 255-3 at the close of play, with Haris Sohail unbeaten on 15 and nightwatchman Mohammad Abbas one not out as Australia´s bowlers toiled away with little success on a flat Dubai Stadium pitch. Pakistan got off to a strong start against Australia, reaching 205 for loss of one wicket at lunch on the first day of the series-opening test match in Dubai on Sunday. Veteran all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez, playing his first test since 2016, was at the crease on 118 while the 37-year-old's opening partner Imamul Haq was out on 76. Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed had earlier won the toss and elected to bat first on a dry wicket at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Australia captain Tim Paine introduced spin after only eight overs, bringing on off-spinner Nathan Lyon first change inside the first hour and left-armer Jon Holland shortly afterwards. Hafeez looked in total control against the Australian attack with six boundaries in a chanceless knock to close in on his 13th half-century in test cricket. Imam, meanwhile, used his feet well against the spinners and smashed four boundaries and a mighty six over deep mid-wicket off Holland in the 20th over. Australia toiled hard on the field in tough conditions, with Lyon bowling 12 of the 31 overs in the first session. While the 30-year-old managed to keep things tight, Holland gave away 32 runs in his six overs. Match will begin at 11am Pakistan Standard Time.
