Australia to play two Tests in UAE against Pakistan
Pakistan and Australia will face off in Test cricket for the first time in almost four years, when Australia travel to the UAE for a full tour in October this year. The teams will play two Tests, between October 20 and November 1, in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
Before the Tests, they will play a one-off Twenty20 and three ODIs, across Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah. Australia will play a four-day tour game in Sharjah, against Pakistan A, ahead of the Tests.
The teams last met in a bilateral series when Australia visited the UAE in August-September 2012. Then, Australia won the ODIs 2-1, and Pakistan won the T20s 2-1, one game of which they clinched in the Super Over. Their last Test series was in England, in July 2010.
