Day 1 Wrap

The debutant Fakhar Zaman and captain Sarfraz Ahmed both fell six runs short of centuries as Marnus Labuschagne s legspin proved a thorn in Pakistan s attempts at a big total day one of the second Test in Abu Dhabi.

The pair had added 147 for the sixth wicket to help Pakistan overcome a dramatic pre-lunch collapse at the hands of Nathan Lyon, but both were cut off by Labuschagne who finished with his Test-best figures of 3/45on a surface already showing signs of sharp turn. Pakistan were bowled out for 282 late in the day, a remarkable recovery from 57/5 , and Mohammad Abbas getting Usman Khawaja and Peter Siddle before stumps he is now joint second-fastest to 50 Test wickets turned a middling day into a good one.

If Lyon dominated the morning session on Tuesday with four wickets in six balls, Labuschagne in his second Test played a big role in curbing Pakistan s enthusiasm with the wickets of Zaman and Sarfraz as well as that of Bilal Asif.

Sarfraz had walked to the crease at the fall of Babar Azam for zero with Pakistan having slipped from 57/1 to 57/5 in the morning session, and batted led the counter-punch with three fours in one Siddle over. Sarfraz s busy innings saw him play the spinners well, at times using his feet to smother the turn and drive boundaries over mid-on and over midwicket. Remarkably, according to stats analysts CricViz, Sarfraz s innings is the longest in Tests this year without a single delivery left alone.

Zaman, dropped on 30 just moments before Lyon took two wickets in two balls to put Pakistan in a spin, then overcame a run-out chance before lunch to battle his way to 94 before he fell to Labuschagne. Mitchell Starc was driven and cut with power, Lyon placed delicately off the back foot and Jon Holland easily manoeuvred into the gaps as the star with Sarfraz grew at a good clip. Zaman moved into the nineties wth a huge six off Holland and then on 94, off Labuschagne s legspin, survived a very good lbw shout when replays showed the thinnest of inside edges. However, the bowler had his man three balls later when sharp turn trapped him in front., and this time the review did not save Zaman.
