Summary

  • DUBAI, Oct 7 AAP – Australia’s batsmen have survived their first examination from ace legspinner Yasir Shah but Pakistan remain in a commanding position in the first Test in Dubai.
  • New-look opening duo Usman Khawaja (17 not out) and Aaron Finch (13 not out) faced 13 overs with Test debutant Finch surviving a big appeal for lbw from Yasir’s second delivery.
  • Replays showed the ball would have clipped leg stump but the umpire’s call would not have been overturned, meaning a Pakistan review would have been fruitless.
  • Paine called for a review and replays showed the ball was projected to hit the wicket but the umpire’s call could not be overturned because Sohail was too far down the pitch.
  • Australian captain Tim Paine faced criticism for not taking the new ball until the 120th over, allowing Shafiq and Sohail to settle at the crease.
