Australia looked unlikely to level the two-match Test series against Pakistan after losing opener Chris Rogers in a brief session while chasing its opponent's big first-inning total on Friday. Catch all the highlights  of the match here: (SCORECARD)

In the second Test match at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Pakistan rode a double century from Younis Khan (213) and a century from captain Misbah-ul Haq (101) before declaring in the last hour of day 2 at 570-6.

In the 5.2 overs that was possible before stumps were drawn in fading light, Rogers edged fast bowler Imran Khan to wicket-keeper Sarfraz Ahmed, before David Warner (16 not out) and night-watchman Nathan Lyon (1 not out) saw them to the close.

Pakistan's innings was built around the fourth-wicket partnership of 179 runs between Khan and Misbah, after the other centurion of the innings, Azhar Ali (109), was dismissed for the addition of just eight runs to his overnight score of 101.

Pakistan haven't enforce the follow-on as they will come out to bat once again. They would look to build a further lead and declare. Join us in a while for Pakistan's reply.

Australia are all out for just 261, giving a 309-run lead to Pakistan. Their batting was pretty poor as no batsman looked comfortable. The only fight was shown by the middle and lower middle order. Mitchell Marsh was the lone man to score fifty as he was out for 87. Pakistan bowled well as a unit. Imran Khan finished with three wickets while Babar, Ali and Shah picked up two wickets each.

Day 3, session 3...

!

Pakistan continue to dominate the Aussies. They picked up another three wickets in this session and look good to bundle the Aussies out before enforcing the follow on, which isn't certain yet. Mitchell Marsh has played a fighting hand out there but unfortunately, has run out of partners. Australia will hope that Siddle can give him good company and take him past a hundred.

Hello and welcome to the third day of the second Test match between Pakistan and Australia. Pakistan are in a strong position and will look to bowl Australia out today. Australia trail by 548 runs and if they want to survive, they need to bat the whole day. They have a strong batting line up, however, unlike the first Test they need to survive.

Day 3, Session 1...

!

Pakistan are completely in the ascendency here. They have kept Australia on the field for nearly two days now and have ensured that even if they do not win this match, they won't be losing it either. The day certainly belonged to Younus Khan who notched up his 5th double century. Not to forget hundreds from Azhar Ali and Misbah-ul-Haq. The plan was to wear the Aussies down and that has worked wonders for them. Australia had to see off a tricky period in the dying minutes of the day but they could not see it through without any damage. Chris Rogers was snapped up by Imran Khan and that has firmly put Pakistan in command. They will be calling the shots now. Can the Aussies somehow show some stomach to fight back? Tomorrow is a crucial day. Do join us for that. Till them it's goodbye from us.

!

The umpires have decided that the light isn't good enough for them to continue. They have decided that will be STUMPS ON DAY 2!
