It was Abbas who destroyed Australia with a haul of 17 wickets in the series - becoming the first Pakistani fast bowler to take ten wickets in a Test since Mohammad Asif's feat against Sri Lanka at Kandy in 2006.

The first Test ended in a draw in Dubai last week. Ahmed will not be playing for Pakistan on the fourth day of the crucial Test against the Kangaroos.

It was Australia's heaviest defeat against Pakistan, beating the 356-run hammering at this same venue four years ago.

Australia were set a big target of 538 to win the second Test after some useful contributions from the Pakistan batting line-up saw them declare at 400/9.

With star batsman Usman Khawaja to see a surgeon back in Australia surrounding his knee injury and uncertain to be fit for the Aussie summer, Warne posted on Twitter on Friday night that opener Aaron Finch is the only batsman who is certain to play in the First Test against India, beginning December 6 in Adelaide.

Travis Head's nick to Abbas on 36 in the seventh over of the day sparked a woeful collapse of 4-7 in 26 balls. This allowed an Aussie fielder to throw the ball to Tim Paine to knock the bails off, dismissing Ali for 64.

Labuschagne combined with Mitchell Starc (28) for a defiant 67-run partnership before the paceman was trapped in front by legspinner Yasir Shah, who cleaned up the tail with the wickets of Peter Siddle and Jon Holland. The right-arm seamer then had top scorer Marnus Labuschagne caught behind for 43 after lunch to finish with 5-62 to go along with his first innings effort of 5-33.

In freakish scenes early on day three in Abu Dhabi, Azhar convened mid-pitch with Asad Shafiq after an edge to Peter Siddle which flew past gully and seemed destined for the boundary.
