In a spin Pakistan’s Yasir Shah is raring to go ahead of the Test series

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.

The victor of the award - which is decided by journalists from 173 different nations - will be announced in Paris on December 3. Premier League duo Roberto Firmino and Eden Hazard are among the nominees for the 2018 Ballon d'Or .

But it was Finch and Khawaja in the afternoon session who batted with resolve. Had the umpire given him out, the call would have stood.

At stumps opener Usman Khawaja was batting on a fighting 50 and Travis Head on 34 as the pair had added an invaluable 49 for the unbroken fourth wicket stand to prolong Australia's resistance on a tired and spinning Dubai stadium pitch.

Shafiq hit nine boundaries and a six in his 278 minutes at the crease.

Peter Siddle took three wickets for Australia and Nathan Lyon grabbed two wickets.

Signing Jamaal Charles is the Right Move for the Jaguars
In Charles, the Jaguars are getting a four-time Pro Bowl performer (2010, 2012-2014) and two-time first-team All-Pro (2010, 2013). The Jacksonville Jaguars signed veteran running back Jamaal Charles to a one-year deal, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Tuesday.

A year ago he was included in Pakistan's squad for the two-match series against Sri Lanka, but did not feature as team management thought he was still not ready. "I always want to play positive and leave behind all such things", Hafeez said.

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.
