Australia has six wickets left to survive the final day of the second Test against Pakistan after finishing 143-4 at stumps on Sunday, chasing an unlikely target of 603. Catch all the highlights of the match here: (SCORECARD)

Earlier, Pakistan captain Misbah-ul Haq matched the record for the fastest century in tests and broke that of the fastest fifty.

At the end of the fourth day, Australia trailed Pakistan by 460 runs. While the pitch is still playing fair, it is expected to break down a bit more Monday.

Australia's only consolation is that Steven Smith and Mitchell Marsh - their two best players of spin bowling - are at the crease. Smith was unbeaten on 38 and Marsh on 26 in a 42-run partnership for the fifth wicket.

Pakistan won the first of the two-Test series by 221 runs.

Smith was the pick of the bowlers but he bowled just 10 overs out of 164 speaks volumes about their inability and that sums up the innings for Australia. Their batsmen have a tough small period to go through today. Join us in a while for the Australian reply.

That's that! Pakistan have declared and ended Australia's misery. The platform was set up by Azhar Ali and Younus Khan. Azhar got out after his ton today but Younus went onto score his double ton with a very impressive ton from Misbah as well. The Aussie bowlers were hopeless on this deck and they will hope their batsmen do good on this deck.

Mitchell Starc to Sarfraz Ahmed

NOT OUT! No edge there! A short of a length ball again across off, Ahmed tries to steer it behind the wicket on the off side, the ball takes off and goes whizzing past the edge making a little noise. Warner takes it and the Aussies go up. The umpire shakes his head for he didn't hear anything. The Aussies have gone up for a review straightaway but the replays show that there was no evident edge, and as such, the decision stands. Clarke is absolutely livid with that.

Australia have gone for a review against Sarfraz Ahmed for a caught behind. He hasn't been given out.
