Pakistan take on Australia in the first Test match of the series between these two sides at the Dubai International Stadium in UAE.
Having comprehensively secured a 3-0 whitewash in the preceding one-day international series the tourists will be confident heading into this clash.
There is extra incentive for the Aussies as well as they know victory will help them move one step closer to knocking South Africa off the No.1 spot in the Test rankings.
The Australians are likely to go with two spinners in the dry conditions with Steve O’Keefe and Nathan Lyon leading the line, whilst Mitchell Johnson will provide the seam attack.
David Warner and captain Michael Clarke will return after injury for the away side, whilst the Pakistanis welcome back Taufeeq Umar and Younis Khan and Mohammed Hafeez has recovered sufficiently from a hand injury to play.
The other big news is that the hosts have named youngster Yasir Shah in their XI, with the spinner having just ODI to his name and no experience as yet in the five-day game.
