Labuschagne, playing only his second Test, grafted his way to 43 but was dismissed second over after lunch becoming Abbas's 10th victim in the match.

"Looks like they hadn´t prepared for Abbas, they took him a little easy", said Sarfraz.

Tim Paine delivered a damning assessment of Australia's batting frailties and said they "weren't up to it" after Pakistan wrapped up the series with a crushing victory in Abu Dhabi.

Asked to identify where improvement must be found ahead of the home Test series against India, Paine homed in once more on Australia's batting.

Despite the freakish wicket, Pakistan still remain in the driver seat with a lead of 369 at lunch with six wickets - and plenty of time - in hand. Over here, one of the things our bowlers talked about was building pressure from both ends. "We had some momentum from the first Test, started really well here and then from 5 for 57 it went a bit pear-shaped to be honest, all over the field".

"It´s hard to swallow".

"First of all it was disappointing. we laughed about it afterwards".
