Abbas stars as Pakistan beat Australia to clinch Test series


ABU DHABI: Medium pacer Mohammad Abbas dismantled Australian batting with a 10-wicket haul as Pakistan beat the tourists by 373 runs in the second and final Abu Dhabi Test to clinch the series 1-0.

Australia, set a daunting 538-run target, were bowled out for 164 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium.

Marnus Labuschagne top-scored with 43 while Travis Head made 36 and Aaron Finch 31.

Man-of-the-Match and Series Abbas followed up his first innings figures of 5-33 with 5-62 in the second innings to wrap up a brilliant UAE tour with a total of 17 wickets.

The first Test ended in a draw in Dubai last week.
