Pakistan make steady progress to reach lunch on 328-5 against Australia on day two of their first Test, despite losing Misbah-ul-Haq in the morning session.

Pakistan have made steady progress in the morning session of day two in their opening Test against Australia, despite losing Misbah-ul-Haq.

The two teams head into lunch with Pakistan on 328-5 as they take control of the contest following an uncertain start on day one, when Mohammed Hafeez and Ahmed Shehzad (3) were dismissed with their side having posted just seven runs.

This morning, Pakistan resumed on 219-4, but their run-rate was low and Misbah was eventually caught out by Mitchell Johnson from a Steven Smith delivery on 69.

Despite Misbah's exit, Asad Shafiq and Sarfraz Ahmed took control by finishing the session unbeaten on 56 and 27 runs respectively.
