Pakistan vs England in UAE 2015, 1st Test: England vs Pakistan at Abu Dhabi, Oct 13-17, 2015.

Venue: Played at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi

Toss: Pakistan won the toss and will bat first

Alastair Cook scored 200 while Root added a half-century as the batsmen dominated another session of play in Abu Dhabi.

Yasir is ruled out due to injury, Imran Khan is set to play in his stead. A big blow for Pakistan, who will be without their twirler in chief - the fastest Pakistani to 50 Test wickets and the man England would have been most fearing.

Abu Dhabi is an extremely lucky venue for Misbah. He has won 7 out of 8 tosses here. Also has five 100s in his last 6 inns here.
