Pakistan vs Australia, First Test Day 1 in Dubai, Highlights: As it Happened

Follow all the live action as Pakistan take on Australia in the first Test in Dubai.

Preview: Australia's hopes of winning back respect and moving on from a ball-tampering scandal that plunged the team into disgrace face their first test on Sunday when Tim Paine's rebuilding side meet Pakistan in the series-opener in Dubai. With former captain Steven Smith, and opening batsmen David Warner and Cameron Bancroft, serving suspensions for 'Sandpaper-gate', the Australians have brought a vastly different squad to the Middle East from the one that was belted 3-1 in South Africa six months ago. A whole third of the 15 in the United Arab Emirates have yet to play a test, and Paine's side could feature up to four uncapped players when they head out into the Dubai heat against Sarfraz Ahmed-captained Pakistan.

Australia Playing XI: Aaron Finch, Usman Khawaja, Mitchell Marsh, Shaun Marsh, Travis Head, Marnus Labuschagne, Tim Paine (C & WK), Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon, Peter Siddle, Jon Holland

Pakistan Playing XI: Mohammad Hafeez, Imam-ul-Haq, Azhar Ali, Asad Shafiq, Haris Sohail, Babar Azam, Sarfraz Ahmed, Yasir Shah, Bilal Asif, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Abba
