Cricket-Rain delays resumption of second test in Melbourne

MELBOURNE, Dec 27 (Reuters) - Rain delayed the resumption of play after lunch on day two of the second test between Australia and Pakistan on Tuesday, with the touring side on 232 for four in their first innings.

Pakistan opener Azhar Ali was unbeaten on 112, with middle order batsman Asad Shafiq 48 not out after rain brought lunch early.

Australia lead the three-match series 1-0 after winning the first test in Brisbane by 39 runs.
