Alike day one once again afternoon rain forced on-field umpires Ian Gould and S.Ravi to called off day's play.
Azhar and middle order batsman Asad Shafiq combined for a 115-run partnership and batted through the entire first session as Australia laboured with the old ball reaching the end of its life.

In the three innings, Maddinson played, he only scored mere five runs and was under pressure to hold his spot for the second Test of the three-match series.
"Obviously he knows that he needs to be good in the later spells because you have to bowl at least 20 overs a day so he is working hard". For Australia, Jackson Bird took three wickets. However, Misbah Ul Haq troops started poorly with conceiving 400+ runs in the first innings and then, squaring up under just 136 runs.
