Dubai: Aug 28, 2012

 

Pakistan take on Australia in the first One-Day International (ODI) at Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Tuesday.

 

Pakistan and Australia will seek revival amidst oppressive heat and unusual timings in their limited over series which starts on Tuesday.

 

Pakistan, who have not beaten Australia in a one-day series since 2002, have lost 4-1 to England and 3-1 inSri Lanka, slipping to sixth in the one-day rankings.

 

Australia, who slid to fourth from number one for the first time in three years after a humiliating 4-0 defeat in England last month, not only face an opponent laced with quality spinners but also with high temperatures.

 

Pakistan, who are playing their home series on neutral venues because of security fears in their country, was forced to host the series in the extreme hot conditions in United Arab Emirates after Sri Lanka backed out as alternate.

 

Pakistan also considered Malaysia as the option but threats of rains ruled out that option too, forcing them to start the one-day matches at 6pm in the evening and finish them at 1:45 am the next day.

 

Australia had the taste of conditions and timings in their 66-run win over Afghanistan on Saturday.
