Australia vs Pakistan, 1st Test
Australia and Pakistan will meet each other in the first test of 2 match series starting from Sunday morning at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. The test series will be followed by 3 matches T20I series starting from October 24.
Both the teams will feature with a couple of changes in their squad. While Pakistan have dropped M Amir from their side and recalled Wahab Riaz, M Hafeez and Fawad Ahmed have also got a test recall. Australia, on the other side, has named 5 uncapped players for the test series.
While Pakistan is coming after Asia Cup 2018, Australia would be relieved with their outing in the four-day practice match ahead of the game. Although the practice game ended on a draw, the fifties from Aaron Finch, Mitch Marsh, Shaun Marsh, and Travis Head showcased their determination and skill. In bowling, Nathan Lyon bagged 8 wickets and will be a big threat to Pakistan batting line up.
