Dubai - Leg-spinner Yasir Shah regained full fitness as Pakistan won the toss and opted to bat in the second Test against England in Dubai on Thursday.

Back spasms forced Shah to miss the first of three Tests which ended in a draw in Abu Dhabi last week.

Shah replaced paceman Rahat Ali, the only change to the side, while the England team remained unchanged from the first game.

The third and final Test will be played in Sharjah from November 1.

Teams:

Pakistan: Misbah-ul-Haq (captain), Shan Masood, Mohammad Hafeez, Asad Shafiq, Younis Khan, Shoaib Malik, Sarfraz Ahmed, Yasir Shah, Zulfiqar Babar, Wahab Riaz, Imran Khan

England: Alastair Cook (capt), Moeen Ali, James Anderson, Jonny Bairstow, Ian Bell, Stuart Broad, Jos Buttler, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Mark Wood

Umpires: Paul Reiffel (AUS) and Bruce Oxenford (AUS)

Tv umpire: Chris Gaffaney (NZL)

Match referee: Andy Pycroft (ZIM)
