Dubai - Pakistan won the toss and decided to bat against England in the third and final Test played at Dubai Stadium on Friday.

Pakistan, leading the series 2-0 following their ten-wicket win in the first Test in Dubai and 72 run victory in the second Test in Abu Dhabi, brought back paceman Aizaz Cheema in place of Junaid Khan.

England remained unchanged from the Abu Dhabi Test, keeping faith with their batsmen despite their struggles against Pakistan's spinners in the first two matches.
