The tourists, who lead the five-match series 2-0 after winning both the first two games by eight wickets in Sharjah, brought in fast bowler Pat Cummins for Jhye Richardson who dislocated his shoulder on Sunday and has returned home.

Another fast bowler, Jason Behrendorff, replaced Nathan Coulter-Nile in the line-up.

Pakistan also made two changes, bringing in fast bowlers Usman Shinwari and Junaid Khan - for their first games of the series - in place of Faheem Ashraf and Mohammad Abbas.
