Pakistan bat first against England in Abu Dhabi test
Pakistan is playing without key spinner Yasir Shah who went down with a back problem in training on Monday. Imran Khan has replaced him.
“It’s a test of others in the side to show their character,” Misbah said after the toss, admitting that the absence of another spinner from the party is “disappointing”.
The second Test at Dubai is scheduled to begin on October 22, while the third Test will start November 1 at Sharjah.
The bilateral series which will be comprised of three Tests, four one day internationals (ODIs) and three Twenty20 matches will continue till November 30, 2015.
