Abu Dhabi: Oct 10, 2013
Irfan, the tallest cricketer ever to play cricket at 2.16m (7ft 1in), removed the top order with some hostile pace at Sheikh Zayed Stadium.
Off-spinner Ajmal, expected to play a lead role against South Africa, then combined with left-armer Baber to hint what was expected of them in the two-Test series against the Proteas.
Babar, 34, has yet to play a Test but was man-of-the-series against the West Indies in a Twenty20 seies in the Caribbean in July.
He is likely to team up with Ajmal and another left-armer Abdur Rehman in the first Test.
Last year Pakistan routed then world number one Test team England 3-0 with Ajmal chipping in with 24 wickets and Rehman 19.
For UAE, Shaimon Anwar top-scored with a fighting 86 while skipper Khurram Khan made 24.
Pakistan had made 317-9 in their innings.
Pakistan 317 for 9 decl. (Younis Khan 103, Adnan Akmal 71, Abdur Rehman 52) beat UAE 190 (Shaimon Anwar 86; Mohammad Irfan 4 for 28, Saeed Ajmal 3 for 20, Zulfiqar Babar 3 for 44) 127 runs.
