Abu Dhabi - England captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and opted to bat in the first day-night international against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.

The match will mark the retirement of senior Pakistan batsman Younis Khan from one-day cricket which was announced earlier in the day.

Pakistan left out opener Ahmed Shehzad and instead included spinning allrounder Bilal Asif whose bowling action was cleared earlier this month.

England kept the same line-up which beat Hong Kong in a warm-up game on Sunday.

The remaining matches will be played in Abu Dhabi (November 13), Sharjah (November 17) and Dubai (November 20).


Pakistan: Azhar Ali (captain), Mohammad Hafeez, Bilal Asif, Younis Khan, Shoaib Malik, Babar Azam, Sarfraz Ahmed, Anwer Ali, Yasir Shah, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Irfan

England: Eoin Morgan (captain), Moeen Ali, Jos Buttler, Alex Hales, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, James Taylor, Reece Topley, David Willey, Chris Woakes

Umpires: Ahsan Raza (PAK) and Johan Cloete (RSA)

Tv umpire: Chris Gaffaney (NZL)

Match referee: Ranjan Madugalle (SRI)
