  • Aaron Finch will make his Test debut against Pakistan on Sunday

This is the first time that the Aussies are playing with three debutants in a Test in Asia. The match will begin at 11:30 AM (IST) and can be seen on the Sony ESPN and Sony ESPN HD, as well as streamed live online on Sony LIV.

The opening wicket produced 205 runs with Imam-ul-Haq who scored 76.

Haris Sohail (110) - one of two Pakistan century-makers along with Mohammad Hafeez (126) - soon followed, caught behind while attempting to cut a Nathan Lyon delivery.

Australia's bowlers continue to toil in the blazing Dubai heat, with Pakistan veteran Mohammad Hafeez piling on a century in an ominous start to the first cricket Test.

Sohail did to get to three figures though, hitting a six off spinner Jon Holland before cutting him to third man for two to complete his century. Pakistani opener and veteran Mohammad Hafeez is returning to the national team after almost two years. Australia still trails Pakistan by 452 runs.

Melania Trump has told her husband to put the phone down
The struggle over Kavanaugh resurfaced the roiling debate over the treatment of women who allege sexual misconduct. While Melania is usually by her husband's side on political visits, she bowed out of a few trips this year.

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.

Tim Paine, the Australia captain, also felt this was a "bat first" pitch.

Receiving little assistance from a deck nearly entirely devoid of grass, Mitchell Starc and recalled workhorse Peter Siddle combined for just eight overs before Lyon was brought into the attack. Lyon, Holland and Siddle finished a challenging opening day with a wicket apiece.

Usman Khawaja was unbeaten on 17 and debutant Aaron Finch was 13 not out as Australia negotiated some tight spin bowling from Pakistan on a pitch which has started to show signs of turn. The second and final Test will be played in Abu Dhabi from October 16.
