Day 1: Pakistan were 219 for four at stumps on Day 1 after Younis scored his 25th Test hundred and had a 83-run stand with Misbah-ul_Haq for the fourth wicket.

Younis came in during the fourth over of the day and revived Pakistan by adding 108 runs for the third wicket with Azhar Ali (53), defying Australia for nearly 3-1/2 hours after Johnson and Peter Siddle had cut Pakistan to 7-2.

Australia captain Michael Clarke used his fast bowlers in short spells. Johnson was the pick as 13 of his 20 overs were maidens and he conceded only 22 runs.
