Pakistani bowler Mohammad Abbas ripped through Australian top order in Abu Dhabi Test

ABU DHABI – Pakistani bowler Abbas ripped through the Australian top order on four day of the second match in Abu Dhabi.

Abbas picks up four early wickets of the top order batsman of the Australian team on the fourth morning.

Pakistan declare second innings on 400/9, setting Australia 538 to win. Needing 491 runs to win the match, Australia started their second innings on 47 for one before Abbas took four wickets in the morning session to send Aaron Finch, Travis Head, Mitchell Marsh and skipper Tim Paine back to the pavilion.

Chasing a target of 538 runs, Australia still needs 455 runs with five wickets in hand. No team has ever chased more than 418-7 to win a Test, made by the West Indies against Australia at Antigua in 2003.
