Sharjah - Australian captain George Bailey won the toss and opted to bat in the first day-night international against Pakistan played at Sharjah stadium on Tuesday.
Pakistan gave a one-day debut to left-arm spinner Zulfiqar Babar to shoulder the spin attack in the absence of Saeed Ajmal, who was suspended for an illegal bowling action last month and is not on the tour.
At 35 years and 301 days, Babar is the second oldest Pakistani to debut behind Younis Ahmed, who played his first ODI at 39 years and 121 days in 1987.
Australia handed a one-day debut to Sean Abbott after the 22-year-old paceman impressed in his team's six-wicket win in the only Twenty20 match in Dubai on Sunday.
Spearhead Mitchell Johnson also returns after recovering from a rib injury.
The remaining one-day matches will be played in Dubai (October 10) and Abu Dhabi (October 12). The one-days will be followed by two Tests.
