Australia, in their first innings replying the home team's near about five hundred runs total, flied a strong start as Usman Khawaja and Aaron Finch undetached in the first wicket up to 142 runs.

The pair frustrated the Australian attack with some solid batting as Pakistan reached 329-4 at lunch, with both in sight of centuries.

Siddle, whose previous Test appearance came in 2016, said he enjoyed walking out with three debutants - Aaron Finch, Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne - on Sunday.

Australia made short work of the tail, but still had the small matter of getting through 13 overs in fading light against Mohammad Abbas, Wahab Riaz and, most crucially, Yasir Shah.

In the process, Khawaja, who top-scored for Australia in the first innings with a knock of 85, touched the 50-run mark for the second time in this Test.

Pakistan will resume on day four at 3-45, leading Australia by 325 runs after offspinner Bilal Asif wreaked havoc on the tourists with six wickets on debut.

Part-time leg-spinner Marnus Labuschagne finally broke through just before the tea break when he lured Shafiq to drive the ball away from his body and got the thick outside edge to Paine behind the wickets.
