Australian Test captain, Tim Paine, and man-of-the-match, Usman Khawaja, spoke to the media after drawing the first Test against Pakistan at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Khawaja dug in and pulled off a brilliant innings of 142 runs from 302 balls, the second-longest by a player in a fourth innings in Test history.

Paine then stepped up with a gutsy captain’s knock of 61 not-out off 194 balls to guide Australia to a well deserved draw.
