  • Khawaja batted for eight hours and 44 minutes to help foil Pakistan's victory bid

Australia still trails Pakistan by 452 runs.

More good work from Labuschagne and Paine saw Babar Azam (4) run out four balls after tea but Sohail, who moved to 98 with a maximum off Holland, reached his century via a cut for two down to a vacant third-man region.

Usman Khawaja's extraordinary innings of 141 engineered a remarkable escape for Australia as they held on to draw the first Test against Pakistan.

The Pakistani cricketers are closing in on victory in the first Test against Australia in Dubai.

Barring that error, Hafeez looked in full control during his 208-ball knock which contained 15 hits to the fence. The 28-year-old pinned Finch right in front of the stumps with a delivery that nipped back in from just outside off. Finch missed out on a fifty by just one run. His sorry form continued as he edged one to the keeper without opening his account. He along with Imam-Ul-Haq gave Pakistan a flying start as they were 89 for no loss at lunch. Khawaja, at the other end, remained unfazed and finally found an ally in debutant Head to battle it out in the middle.

Pakistan could have had Head leg-before off leg-spinner Yasir Shah on 44, but Sarfraz did not review English umpire Richard Kettleborough´s not out decision when replays showed the ball hitting the wickets.

Pakistan had expected early wickets after jolting Australia to 136-3 at the close on the fourth day, but nothing worked for skipper Sarfraz Ahmed, who made multiple bowling changes.

Imam was the first to fall on the day, offering left-arm spinner Jon Holland an easy return catch.

Pakistan made 482 in their first innings while in reply Australia were dismissed for 202.

Australia collapsed with a whimper in the first innings, but Islamabad-born opener Khawaja - who top scored with 85 in the first innings - batted with remarkable application and skill as he and Head ensured no wickets fell in the morning session. Shafiq commenced with a stylish drive and conventional sweep before smoking Nathan Lyon (2 for 58) for a six over mid-wicket.
