Pakistan build formidable lead against Australia on Day 4 of first Test

Tim Paine leads Australia into their first Test series since the ball-tampering affair erupted in South Africa in March

Haris Sohail scored his maiden Test century on Monday as Pakistan piled up 482 runs in its first innings on the second day against Australia.

Concerns about Khawaja's poor record on turning tracks meant he was overlooked during last year's Test series in India and was dropped after one Test in Bangladesh.

Australia negotiated the 13 overs and was 30-0 at stumps with Usman Khawaja not out on 17 and Aaron Finch batting on 13.

An all-too-familiar batting collapse has exposed Australia's frailties in Asia and left the tourists battling to save the first test against Pakistan after losing 10 wickets for just 60 runs.

Moreover, Mohammad Abbas also shined during the first inning for Pakistan as he dismissed four Australian batsmen for 29 runs.

Head said it had been tough going for Australia's batsmen with Abbas generating significant reverse-swing and Pakistan's spinners capitalising on a deteriorating pitch.

The right-arm medium pacer dismissed Aaron Finch (49) and the Marsh brothers - Shaun and Mitchell - for ducks as Australia slumped from 87 without loss to finish the fourth day at 136-3.

Thirty-five year old Darren Sproles figured prominently in the opener, but hasn't played since due to a hamstring injury. However, a recent report indicates that they are not planning to pursue a trade for the Steelers' disgruntled star.

Speaking on Fox Sports during the first Test in Dubai - where Australia is staring down the barrel of a crushing defeat - Waugh weighed in on the some of the selection decisions, while also offering a damning indictment on the quality of batsmen Australia now has.

If Australia still wish to win this match they will have to rewrite the history books as the highest chase in all Test cricket is West Indies´s 418-7, made against Australia at Antigua in 2003.

After resuming their first innings at the overnight score of 255/3, Pakistan lost night-watchman Mohammad Abbas (1) early.

The second and final Test will be played in Abu Dhabi from October 16.

He was soon joined in the dressing room by Sohail, who was adjudged leg before off the bowling of debutant Marnus Labuschagne after Australia sought a review of the umpire's original decision.

Jon Holland took 3-83 while Nathan Lyon finished with 2-58.
