Lunch: Pakistan off to a great start against Australia on day one

At stumps, Pakistan were 255 for the loss of three wickets with Haris Sohail, 15* and night watchman Mohammad Abbas at one* on the crease.

When Day One of the first Test between Pakistan and Australia went underway in Dubai on Sunday, a rare instance in Test cricket was witnessed in which the captains of both the teams - Sarfraz Ahmed and Tim Paine -were wicketkeepers. The match will begin at 11:30 AM (IST) and can be seen on the Sony ESPN and Sony ESPN HD, as well as streamed live online on Sony LIV.

Hafeez, a late inclusion in the squad after a double hundred in a domestic match, was unbeaten on 113 while fellow opener Imam-ul-Haq was 75 not out after Pakistan won the toss and chose to bat on a flat Dubai Stadium pitch.

Hafeez scored his 10th century from 172 balls with the help of 12 boundaries.

The milestone capped a remarkable return for Hafeez, who was overlooked from Pakistan's original 17-man squad and has not played Test cricket since 2016. It was only after tea that Australia were able to take wickets, with off-spinner Nathan Lyon getting Imam caught behind in the 63rd over of the day. Haq reached his 50 off 128 deliveries after hitting six boundaries. Hafeez's dismissal brought the Pakistani run blitzkrieg to a halt and to add to the agony lost another wicket when Azhar chipped Jon Holland to mid-off. Lyon, Holland and Siddle finished a challenging opening day with a wicket apiece. Australia plays the test with three new faces, Queenslander Marnus Labuschagne and the comeback of veteran paceman Peter Siddle.

The 37-year-old all-rounder, whose previous Test appearance was over two years ago, had struck 15 fours in his 208-ball innings to ensure a tough start to the two-match series for the Australians in the Dubai heat.
