Pakistan vs Australia Live Cricket Score - 1st Test Match - Summary

End of Over : 139.5 AUS: 362/8

So that is it from this game. We had five attritional days of cricket but it turned out to be a very exciting game in the end. One which just shows why Test cricket is still the best form. A fair result in the end and now it is all to play for in the second and final Test between the two. It takes place on the 16th of October in Abu Dhabi at 1000 local (0600 GMT). Till then, goodbye and take care!

IT'S A DRAW! Everyone is nervous as Yasir bowls a flighted ball on middle and off. Paine watchfully defends it. A magnificent effort by the skipper as he comes up with a perfect captain's knock to save this Test match. The Australian balcony is delighted. Now, we are seeing the players shaking hands in the middle. That's it then.

Oh! The outer half of the bat found here but it flies past the second slip fielder. It went straight down onto the ground though. Well played. Now just 2 more to go. Pakistan will have to strike on the next ball...

Yasir gives this a bit more air, hoping for some extra spin and bounce. The Australian captain though is up to it as he defends it with a dead straight bat onto the ground off the front foot.

This one is a flighted ball and full on off, Paine does really well to drive it through long off and get another brace. You should never miss out on Test runs, they never come easy.

139.1 2

The first one is a tossed up ball around off, spinning away. Paine looks to block it off the front foot but it takes the outer half of his bat and runs down to third man. The batsman start running and that gives a lot of tension to the Australian dressing room. Luckily for the Aussies, the batsmen are able to come back for a brace. Paine is still on strike.

End of Over : 139 6 Runs AUS: 358/8
138.6 2

Three poor deliveries to end the over! Sums up his day today, just not bowled the way he did in the first innings. It is once again on the pads. Lyon flicks it fine down the leg side and takes a couple.

138.5 4

FOUR BYES! Another waste of a delivery! Sliding down and it is quicker. Sarfraz has no chance of collecting it. It races to the fine leg fence for a boundary.

138.4 0

A waste of a delivery! Down the leg side, Lyon tries to flick but misses to get hit on the pads. The ball once again lobs towards short leg.

138.3 0

The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery.

138.2 0

No turn on this one and it is a touch fuller. Lyon defends it out.

138.1 0

Howzzat? Not out is the answer to that question. The Pakistan players are frustrated but can't help it as there are no reviews left. Bilal tosses it up around middle, it spins back in. Lyon tries to play it with the turn but he seems to have missed it. The ball lobs towards short leg. The fielder takes it and appeals but the umpire shakes his head. By looking at the replay, it seems like Lyon had missed it.

End of Over : 138 0 Runs AUS: 352/8
137.6 0

Flatter on middle, Paine keeps it out. 12 balls more.

137.5 0

Beaten! Beauty from Shah. Gives this a lot of air and keeps it full around off. Paine comes forward looking to defend but the ball pitches and spins sharply away. The main thing though is that it misses his outside edge completely and Paine survives.


Australia will be playing against Pakistan in the first of the two-match Test series at Dubai International Stadium, in Dubai, starting October 7.


Pakistan have a dominant record over Australia in UAE. However, given how both the teams have been performing recently, it is tipped to be a closely fought series. The last time Australia toured UAE, they were beaten 0-2.


Pakistan would be looking for redemption after a disastrous Asia Cup 2018 campaign. On the other hand, Australia would be looking to redeem some pride after the ball-tampering saga at Newlands against South Africa took place earlier this year.


Australia Squad: Tim Paine (c), Aaron Finch, Travis Head, Jon Holland, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Nathan Lyon, Mitchell Marsh, Shaun Marsh, Peter Siddle, and Mitchell Starc.


Pakistan Squad: Azhar Ali, Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam, Asad Shafiq, Haris Sohail, Usman Salahuddin, Sarfraz Ahmed (c & wk), Yasir Shah, Shadab Khan, Bilal Asif, Mohammad Abbas, Hasan Ali, Wahab Riaz, Faheem Ashraf, Mir Hamza, and Mohammad Rizwan.
