Sharjah - Pakistan was forced to leave out leg-spinner Yasir Shah as they won the toss and opted to bat in the third day-night international against England in Sharjah on Tuesday.

Shah suffered knee problem and was replaced by left-arm spinner Zafar Gohar as the only change in the side which lost the second game by 95 runs in Abu Dhabi.

The 20-year-old Gohar is playing his first international for Pakistan.

England, who lost the first game by six wickets in Abu Dhabi, remained unchanged for the second time in a row.

The four-match series is tied at 1-1.
