Australia face huge deficit against Pakistan

Australia lose opener Chris Rogers before stumps on day two after seeing Pakistan declare on 570-6 in Abu Dhabi.

An innings of 213 from Younis Khan has given Pakistan full control after day two of the second Test match against Australia.

The double ton from Khan helped his side declare on a score of 570-6 before Australia ended the day on 22-1 after the dismissal of Chris Rogers.

After posting 276-2 on day one, Azhar Ali got out for 109, before an 181-run stand between Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq took Pakistan to 513-4 when Ul-Haq departed for 101.

Khan, who had posted two centuries in the opening Test, moved past the 200-run mark before he lost his wicket off the bowling of Peter Siddle.

Pakistan declared on 570-6 shortly before stumps to leave themselves time to attack the Australian openers, and their plan succeeded as Rogers went for five to leave the tourists facing a huge task to avoid the follow-on.
