  • Azhar Ali sat at 54 not out as Pakistan took control of the second test against Australia on day two

Pakistan bowler Mohammed Abbas, 28, had figures of 62-5 from Australia's second innings to register a 10-wicket haul.

Khawaja, who did not open the batting in Australia's second innings, has sustained a meniscal tear in his left knee and will require surgery.

The Black Caps face Pakistan in the first of three T20 Internationals on October 31st, with three one-day Internationals and three Tests to follow.

With Pakistan's victory over Australia in the Test series emerged a new champion bowler in their ranks.

While Test debutants Aaron Finch, Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne showed glimpses of their potential in the UAE, Shaun Marsh failed to fire and Paine admitted batting spots are up for grabs ahead of the four-Test India series.

The first Test ended in a draw in Dubai last week.

Orange Is The New Black cast confirm final season and it’s devastating
Another of its successful original shows, House of Cards , will also end after a final season which launches in November. Netflix had renewed the Lionsgate-produced series for three seasons ahead of the Season 4 premiere in 2016.

Pakistan, who could have overtaken Sri Lanka with a 2-0 series win, remain at the seventh position but have advanced from 88 to 95 points.

Abbas had jolted Australia with four wickets off just 23 balls while Yasir Shah finished with 3-45 to give Pakistan their tenth series win on the neutral venues of United Arab Emirates.

But while skipper Tim Paine insisted Australia were ready for Abbas, bowling coach David Saker provided a more illuminating perspective.

"He (Abbas) challenged our defence and was too good for us". Babar Azam missed a maiden hundred by one run but he and Sarfraz Ahmed (81) put on a 133-run partnership for the sixth wicket.

Azhar Ali was on strike when he edged the ball down to a vacant third man. The ball, however, did not cross the boundary line and stopped just before the ropes, Mitchell Starc picked up the ball and threw it to wicketkeeper Paine.

The teams next meet in a three-match Twenty20 global series which begins on October 24.
