Pakistan vs Australia 2018, 2nd Test, Live Streaming Day 3: Pakistan pacer Mohammad Abbas registered a five-wicket haul to steer hosts into a dominating position in the second Test against Australia in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.

Pakistan stretched that lead to 281 as they were 144 for two at close, with Azhar Ali not out on 54 for his first half-century in the series and Haris Sohail was 17 not out. With eight wickets in hand, Pakistan were in a great position to force a 1-0 lead in the two-match series after the first Test ended in a fighting draw in Dubai last week.

Azhar, who fell for disappointing scores of 18, four and 15 in the last three innings, batted with resolve, having so far hit three boundaries. But it was once again debutant Fakhar Zaman who lifted Pakistan with a brilliant 66 following up his 94 in the first innings, before giving a return catch to Nathan Lyon who took an evasive action but still managed to hold onto the ball.

Zaman hit seven boundaries in an enterprising knock. 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. Earlier, Abbas and spinner Bilal Asif (3-23) wrecked Australia for 145 in their innings.
