Ten-wicket Abbas destroys Australia for Pakistan's series win

Ten-wicket Abbas destroys Australia for Pakistan's series win

Khawaja, who did not open the batting in Australia's second innings, has sustained a meniscal tear in his left knee and will require surgery.

Man of the match Abbas continued his phenomenal series to snare 10 wickets across both innings as Australia fell short of their first Test series victory in Asia since 2011.

The 28-year-old seamer struck again in his next over, trapping Mitchell Marsh lbw for five. Starc, who was chasing the ball, collected it and wasted no time in throwing it back to the keeper Tim Paine.

The final session saw the Australian bowlers keep their lines tighter but the fact that they had to bowl as many overs as they did was taxing, especially with two more days of play left to try and save the match.

South Africa's joint-highest test wicket-taker Dale Steyn was impressed.

'The type of bowler I would poop my trousers about'.

Labuschagne then pulled Abbas behind - the batsman's review coming in vain with a clear spike visible on UltraEdge - and when Jon Holland (3) clipped Yasir to slip to leave Australia nine down Nathan Lyon (6no) called for handshakes with Khawaja unable to bat.

She was seen ringing the doorbell, knocking on the door and then running back to her vehicle while leaving the child behind. In one hand, she holds two bags, and in the other, she grips the hand of a 2-year-old boy with his feet off the ground.

The series defeat means Australia dropped from third to fifth in the International Cricket Council world rankings.

Australia will now face Pakistan for a three-match T20I series, starting October 24 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

Australia resumed at 1-47 on Friday with hopes of at least putting up a fight after showing tremendous mettle to secure a draw in the first Test in Dubai.

This is Pakistan's biggest win (by runs) in Test, previous biggest was 356 runs in 2014. Pakistan remain seventh but gain seven points to reduce gap to Sri Lanka.

The thought of facing Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Abbas is not one that Michael Vaughan particularly enjoys.

Abbas only made his Test debut in April 2017 but already has 54 wickets to his name.
