Pak v Aus - 2nd Test, Abu Dhabi, day 4

Abbas ten-fer helps Pakistan to 373-run win

Abu Dhabi: Pakistan's medium pacer Mohammad Abbas took five wickets in second time in match as Pakistan beat Australia by 373 runs in the second Test on Friday.

28-year-old Abbas followed up his first innings figures of 5-33 with 5-62. He became the first Pakistani pace bowler to get a ten-wicket haul as Sarfraz wins his first series in the UAE as skipper.

Pakistan won 2-match series by 1-0, after the first Test ended in a draw in Dubai last week.

Australia's batsmen had no answers to his accurate seam bowling under cloudy conditions at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

Marnus Labuschagne was the top scorer for Australia with 43 runs and Nathan Lyon not out six, while opener Usman Khawaja was unavailabe to bat in second innings.

Abbas jolted the Australians in the seventh over of the day when he removed a solid-looking Travis Head for 36, getting an edge to substitute wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan, deputising for Sarfraz Ahmed.

Brief scores:
Pakistan 282 (Fakhar 94, Sarfraz 94, Lyon 4-78, Labuschagne 3-45) and 400 for 9 dec (Babar 99, Sarfraz 81, Lyon 4-135) beat Australia 145 (Abbas 5-33, Bilal 3-23) and 164/9 (Abbas 5-62, Yasir 3-45) by 373 runs

Sarfraz, who was hit on the helmet by a rising Mitchell Starc delivery on Thursday, had gone for a precautionary scan.

Head and Aaron Finch added 61 runs for the second wicket.

Abbas then had Mitchell Marsh (five) and Finch (31) leg-before wicket and dismissed Tim Paine for nought -- before leg-spinner Yasir Shah removed Mitchell Starc (28) and Peter Siddle for three.
