Pakistan and England face off in the opening game of the five-match One-Day International (ODI) series at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday. For the hosts, it will be an opportunity to extract revenge for their 0-4 whitewash at the hands of the same opponents four years ago at their backyard, from which the visitors will look to get some inspiration following the 0-2 series loss in the recently-concluded Test series. A major news broke out ahead of Wednesday’s clash, which was that of Younis Khan announcing his retirement from ODIs. Thus, the upcoming game is now set to be his final appearance in the 50-over format, in order for him to focus on Tests, in which he recently became Pakistan’s first batsman to score 9,000 runs.
