Michael Vaughan would 'poop his pants' facing Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Abbas

PTV Sports Live Streaming Pakistan vs Australia Second Test Michael Vaughan would 'poop his pants' facing Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Abbas

In his next over, Lyon had Asad Shafiq caught at short-leg and two balls later had a dancing down the wicket Babar Azam bowled both batsmen failing to score.

The spinner first caught and bowled Azhar Ali (15) and then tempted Haris Sohail to jab at Travis Head from the following delivery, ending the 20th over on a hat-trick.

A ruthless Pakistan put Australia to the sword in Abu Dhabi, exposing the tourists' shallow batting order and marching towards an imposing target in the second Test.

Meanwhile, Asif - who is playing only his second Test match - picked up the key wicket of Australia Captain Tim Paine (3) at the stroke of lunch.

Debutant opener Fakhar Zaman and skipper Sarfraz Ahmed each scored 94 after Pakistan won the toss and opted to bat at Sheikh Zayed Stadium.

By close on the second day Pakistan were 144 for two in their second innings, stretching the advantage to 281 runs with eight wickets intact as they bid to win the two-match series 1-0. The umpire didn't think it was an out, but Pakistan had it reviewed. Abbas became joint second-fastest Pakistani to the milestone of 50 wickets with Waqar Younis, Mohammad Asif and Shabbir Ahmed.

The Test series against Pakistan is Australia's first since the ball-tampering scandal that erupted in South Africa earlier in the year.

Earlier, off spinner Nathan Lyon took four wickets in six balls to leave Pakistan reeling on 77 for five at lunch. Jason Gillespie recorded this instance in England's second innings during the 1998 Perth Test match.

Australia's Marnus Labuschagne leaves after his dismissal against Pakistan on day two of the second test in Abu Dhabi.

The big-hitting Yasir Shah (28) had his leg stump removed by Mitchell Marsh and the innings ended with Mitchell Starc rattling through Abbas (10).

The pace spearhead, who battled debilitating cramps during the drawn first test in Dubai, bowled just four overs on Wednesday (Thursday NZ Time) and later spent time fielding in the slips cordon. Pakistan made two changes from the first Test, handing Test caps to Zaman and pacer Mir Hamza, leaving out injured Imam-ul-Haq and out of form fast bowler Wahab Riaz.

Fakhar Zaman and Sarfaraz Ahmed added 147 runs to help Pakistan to a respectable 282 in the first session.
