Pakistan in control against Australia as Younis Khan hits 200

Younis Khan hits a double century as Pakistan finish the afternoon session against Australia on 517-4 on day two of the second Test in Abu Dhabi.

Younis Khan has secured a double century as Pakistan continue to dominate Australia by reaching tea on 517-4 on day two of the second Test in Abu Dhabi.

The Aussies made the breakthrough in the morning session by dismissing centurion Azhar Ali for 109, but Michael Clarke's side struggled to gain any momentum.

Khan, who is the third player after Javed Miandad and Inzamam-ul-Haq to score 8,000 Test runs for his nation, reached lunch on 143 not out and he continued to lead Pakistan's attack by storming to 200 runs in the afternoon.

As the Green Shirts surpassed 500 runs, Misbah-ul-Haq scored his 100th run of the innings with a reverse-swept four off Glenn Maxwell's delivery.

However the batsman was sent packing on 101 runs after getting caught and bowled by Steven Smith.

Khan (205 not out) and Asad Shafiq (1 not out) will return to the crease for the final session of the day.
