Australia crash to 120-5 at lunch in Abu Dhabi

Australia slump to 120-5 at lunch on the third day of the second Test against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi.

Pakistan's bowlers were in fine form in Abu Dhabi this morning as Australia lost four batsmen and crashed to 120-5 at lunch on the third day of the second Test.

The visitors got things underway with their score on 22-1, Chris Rogers being the only wicket to fall on day two for the Australians, after Pakistan declared on 570 for six wickets.

Opener David Warner was the first to walk on Saturday when he sliced at a Rahat Ali ball and was caught deep with his score on 19.

Glenn Maxwell came in with the score on 34-2 and started well, but could not deal with the fine form of Zulfiqar Babar, who bowled Maxwell out for 37.

When Nathan Lyon, who had been batting for more than 90 minutes, finally succumbed to the pace of Rahat Ali he had faced 85 deliveries, and matters soon worsened for the visitors.

After a review, Steven Smith was given out lbw after a Babar delivery that spun by the outside edge was judged to have been on course to collide with the middle stump.

Captain Michael Clarke and all-rounder Mitchell Marsh were still at the wicket at the break, with their scores on 34 and 8 respectively.
