Azhar Ali was trapped leg before for four runs by Holland as Pakistan finished the day at 45-3, extending their overall lead to 325 runs with two days to play.

Abbas then grabbed the wickets of Mitchell Marsh, Mitchell Starc and Peter Siddle after tea while Asif wrapped up the innings by claiming No. 10 batsman Nathan Lyon.

The 33-year-old took his wickets off 22 balls as Australia slumped from a solid opening stand of 142-0 to be struggling on 180-5 at tea on a Dubai stadium pitch which has started to take a sharp turn.

Earlier Pakistan had won the toss and made a decision to bat first in the first of the two-match Test series in Dubai.

Meanwhile Bilal Asif gets his maiden Test cap for the hosts Pakistan.

Before Asif's brilliance Abbas had forced Finch to drive straight into the hands of Asad Shafiq at short mid-on.

An all-too-familiar batting collapse has exposed Australia's frailties in Asia and left the tourists battling to save the first test against Pakistan after losing 10 wickets for just 60 runs.

Leg-spinner Yasir Shah was unlucky not to be amongst wickets, having dropped Mitchell Marsh off his own bowling for two and wicketkeeper Sarfraz Ahmed missing a stump in the first session with Khawaja on 17.

Yasir went wicketless after 28 probing overs.

Limited-overs specialist Finch displayed patience after resuming the day on 13 and brought up his half-century with a sweep to the deep midwicket boundary.
