"Clearly it'd be a pretty exciting time to be a batsman around Shield cricket at the moment if you're scoring hundreds", Paine said.

Medium pacer Mohammad Abbas was the chief destroyer of the deplorable Aussie batting line-up, finishing with ten wickets for the Second Test.

Abbas first had Head caught by wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan, who was standing in behind the stumps for Sarfraz Ahmed with the Pakistan skipper sent to hospital after suffering from headaches having been struck by a Peter Siddle bouncer while batting on day three. "The way he bowled, he was the best bowler on either side". Abbas took 17 out of the 36 Australian wickets to fall in the series, a feat that earned him the man of the series award.

However, on Thursday, in the ongoing second Test match between Pakistan and Australian in the United Arab Emirates, Azhar Ali and Asad Shafiq scripted a new self-destruction story.

"He (Abbas) challenged our defence and was too good for us". It also probably helped that he had Yasir [Shah], who probably didn't get the wickets but bowled just as well. "That is what Pakistan did really well together".

Paine said he was yet to discuss with national selectors whether he would retain the ODI captaincy when Australia host South Africa next month.

"It's bitterly disappointing no doubt", he said. The right-arm seamer then had top scorer Marnus Labuschagne caught behind for 43 after lunch to finish with 5-62 to go along with his first innings effort of 5-33.

"It's hard to swallow".

Chasing 538 to win, the tourists resumed at 1-47 on Friday with hopes of at least putting up a fight after showing tremendous mettle to secure a draw in Dubai.
