Debutant Marnus Labuschagne earlier demonstrated his value as a triple-threat, inspiring the visitors with the ball and in the field.

But Sohail (88 not out, 202 balls, 7 fours, 1 six) was still going strong as Pakistan were 417/5 at tea.

There was plenty of talk about Pakistan not showing enough intent on the second day of the opening Test in Dubai but their batsmen slowly picked up pace towards the end of the second session to keep their side on top.

Resuming on 255/3 on the second day, Pakistan were reduced to 260/4 before Shafiq joined forces with Sohail to revive Pakistan's innings.

But Sohail and Shafiq soon began playing with freedom and took the Pakistan score to 394/4 at lunch.

Peter Siddle, pick of the Australian bowlers with 3/58, got the lone success in the first session when he had nightwatchman Mohammad Abbas clean bowled.

Hope Hicks tapped to head communications for New Fox
Hicks assumes the position as the new Fox takes shape in the aftermath of the selling of most of 21st Century Fox to Disney. Hicks, one of Trump's longest-serving and most trusted aides, resigned from her White House job earlier this year.


After winning the toss and electing to bat on a road of a pitch, Pakistan are 0-199 at tea on day one with Hafeez unbeaten on 113 and Imam-ul-Haq 75 not out.

Australia negotiated the 13 overs and were 30/0 at stumps with Usman Khawaja not out on 17 and Aaron Finch batting on 13.

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.

The Test series will be followed by a three-match T20I series (Abu Dhabi, October 24, and Dubai, October 26 and October 28).

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. ERROR: Macro /ads/dfp-ad-article-new is missing!
