Pakistan have won the toss and decided to bat first against Australia in the 2nd Test match being played at Shaikh Zayed Cricket Stadium, Abu Dhabi.
The hosts have made two changes in the lineup as Fakhar Zaman and Mir Hamza are making their Test debut for Pakistan in place of Imamul Haq and Wahab Riaz.
Haq — who was in great touch — ruled out of entire tour after fracturing his finger while fielding in Dubai. Meanwhile Wahab Riaz — who made his comeback in the team — remained wicketless in the same Test.
On the other hand, Australia are fielding in an unchanged side that drew the Dubai Test.
Aaron Finch, Usman Khwaja, Shaun Marsh, Mitchell Marsh, Travis Head, Mamus Labuschagne, Tim Paine, Peter Siddle, Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon and Jon Holland.
Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez, Azhar Ali, Haris Sohail, Babar Azam, Asad Shafiq, Sarfraz Ahmed, Bilal Aisf, Mir Hamza and Mohammad Abbas.
