  • Paine helped Australia saved the first Test

Australia, in reply to Pakistan's 282 all out, were 20-2 at close on the first day of the second Test in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday.

He took a return catch to remove Azhar Ali on 15 and then dismissed Haris Sohail, Asad Shafiq, and Babar Azam all without scoring.

On Tuesday, Debutant opener Fakhar Zaman and Sarfraz missed hundred by six runs each but still revived Pakistan on the first day, after Pakistan found themselves reeling at 57/5 having won the toss and chose to bat first. The first Test ended in a draw in Dubai last week.

The tourists' culprits with the bat were many, but in particular another failure from Shaun Marsh has intensified debate about the veteran's place in the Australian Test team, with former teammate and Australian batting great Mike Hussey acknowledging that pressure was building on his fellow West Australian.

Australia looked to be in trouble as the duo raced towards centuries, losing both reviews in a desperate attempt to undo Pakistan, but Labuschagne (3-45) made his lbw breakthrough to stop Fakhar six runs short of a ton.

Zaman said Pakistan were in the driving seat.

Nathan Lyon said he was looking forward to a banter with "big brother" Mitchell Johnson after the off-spinner surpassed the retired left-arm speedster on the Test wickets list.

Earlier, Abbas and spinner Bilal Asif (3-23) wrecked Australia for 145 in their innings. Lyon was gone for two moments later, with Starc the last man out for 34, completing a five-wicket haul for Abbas. Abbas became joint second-fastest Pakistani to the milestone of 50 wickets with Waqar Younis, Mohammad Asif and Shabbir Ahmed.

The collapse was watched by Glenn Maxwell, running drinks after arriving in Abu Dhabi ahead of Twenty20 commitments following his controversial omission from the Test line-up.

He then had Head caught in the second slip to leave Australia at 56 for four.
