Australia, having bowled out Pakistan on 240 on the first day, Kangaroos, on day two, is batting against the Azhar XI.
Openers Joe Burns and David Warner are making most of their efforts to set a big lead against the Pakistani team.
The Queensland right-hander Joe Burns was overlooked for the Ashes but recalled against Pakistan after Marcus Harris and Cameron Bancroft failed to make the most of their chances.
Now on day two of the first Test, Burns, and Warner, are unbeaten.
Australia were 100 for no wickets at the break in reply to Pakistan’s first innings total of 240 at the Gabba ground in Brisbane.
The pair were largely untroubled throughout the session, scoring at just over four runs an over on a morning when the Pakistan bowlers could get neither swing nor spin.
First Day Wrap-up:
Pakistan batting Thursday collapsed despite the solid start by Azhar Ali and Shan Masood. The visitors were subsequently bowled out for 240 runs in 86.2 overs.
Skipper Azhar Ali (39), Mohammad Rizwan (37), Shan Masood (27) and Yasir Shah (26) were the other batsmen to have entered double-figures. Australia will start their batting innings on Friday (tomorrow) as stumps was called on day one.
Earlier, Azhar Ali and Shan Masood reached 57 without loss in the opening session. The visitors were 125/5 at tea.
Pakistan had won the toss and chose to bat on a hot and humid morning in Brisbane, but Azhar Ali saw no demons in the notoriously lively Gabba wicket.
