Pakistan will look to bounce back after their disappointing loss in the One-Day International (ODI) series, when they take on South Africa in the first match of the Twenty20 series at Dubai on Wednesday.

Pakistan will go to the top of the rankings in the shortest format of the game if they win the two-match Twenty20 series against South Africa. 

Both Pakistan and South Africa will look to get tuned up for the fifth edition of the World Twenty20 to be held in Bangladesh in March and April next year.  Pakistan T20 captain Mohammad Hafeez said his team, ranked second behind Sri Lanka, are eager to win both games.

Teams:

Pakistan: Ahmed Shehzad, Mohammad Hafeez (c), Sohaib Maqsood, Shoaib Malik, Umar Akmal (wk), Abdul Razzaq, Shahid Afridi, Sohail Tanvir, Abdur Rehman, Saeed Ajmal, Mohammad Irfan

South Africa: Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock (wk), Faf du Plessis (c), Jean-Paul Duminy, AB de Villiers, David Miller, Ryan McLaren, Wayne Parnell, Dale Steyn, Lonwabo Tsotsobe, Imran Tahir
