AUS vs PAK Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today match
Dubai, October 07 at 11:30 AM IST
Australia return to Test cricket after a long wait of six months as they take on Pakistan in the first Test of the two-match Test series at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
They have a tough few weeks ahead – spin-friendly surface, the inexperienced squad and hostile weather. However, new coach Justin Langer would be happy with the likes of Mitch Marsh, Nathan Lyon and Travis Head putting up a good show in the warm-up.
The hosts, Pakistan have problems of their own. They have dropped their strike bowler Mohammad Amir, they have only played two Tests this year plus uncertainty over fitness of some key players.
Overall – Played 62, Australia 31, Pakistan 14, draw 17
In UAE – Played 4, Pakistan 2, Australia 2
January 3-7, 2017: Australia defeat Pakistan by 220 runs at SCG, Sydney
Pitch conditions: The surface is likely to assist the slow bowlers and more so with each passing day.
Australia have announed their XI for the fixture.
Shadab Khan has not recovered from a groin injury he picked up during the Asia Cup and will miss out here.
Mohammad Abbas is sure starter among the Pakistan quicks. If they go for a second, they have to choose between the re-called Wahab Riaz or debutant Mir Hamza.
Mohammad Hafeez is likely to return Pakistan's lineup.

Wicket-keeper: There is little to separate two wicket-keepers involved in the game. You can pick either Sarfraz Ahmed or Tim Paine.
Batsmen: Pakistan's batsmen Azhar Ali, Babar Azam and Asad Shafiq are attuned to bat in hot, humid and spin-friendly conditions more than their counterparts. Aaron Finch and Shaun Marsh can also be backed to come good with the bat.
Avoid Australian batsmen as they may struggle against Pakistan's spinners.
All-rounders: Mohammad Hafeez has all the experience and should be the first choice all-rounder. Mitchell Marsh and Travis Head can also give you value with the bat as well as the ball.
Bowlers: Keeping in mind the surface and condition, Yasir Shah and Nathan Lyon are likely to put forth a lot of problems for the batsmen.
Asad Shafiq, Yasir Shah and Nathan Lyon
