Match Notes

    Pakistan coach Waqar Younis has said his side has spotted certain "weaknesses" in Australia during their tour-game defeat in Sharjah, and they will be looking to exploit that once the Test series gets underway

  • Australians done by spin, reverse swing

    Phillip Hughes conceded that his team found it difficult to deal with spin and reverse swing, after Australians crumbled to a 153-run loss against Pakistan A in Sharjah

  • Australians crumble to 153-run loss

    Phillip Hughes scored a half-century but Michael Clarke and Chris Rogers missed out on their last chance for some decent time in the middle ahead of the first Test, as Pakistan A wrapped up a 153-run victory in the tour game in Sharjah

  • Haider swaps dirhams for Australian deliveries

    On the first two days of this game, Saqlain Haider was working in a bank, dealing with dirhams from 8am until 4pm. On day three, he was standing behind the stumps negotiating nasty Mitchell Johnson deliveries.

  • Lyon, O'Keefe make Test case for spin

    Playing two spinners has not brought Australia much success in the post-Warne era, but the UAE might prove the exception
