(MENAFN - Tribal News Network) ABU DHABI, 27 September: Pakistan will be playing the first Test of a three-match series against Sri Lanka in Sheikh Zayed Stadium Abu Dhabi on Thursday.
Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed and Sri Lankan captain Dinesh Chandimal will attend the trophy unveiling ceremony scheduled today.
Pakistan will be playing first test after the retirement of cricket legends Younis Khan and Misbah
Haq when they take on Sri Lanka .
Playing without Younis and Misbah is unaccustomed territory for Pakistan, who haven't had a Test featuring either of the talismanic, prolific pair in seven years.
It comes as they prepare to welcome the return of full international cricket to their home country next month, when Sri Lanka visit for a Twenty20 game in Lahore.
