Pakistan recalled 36-year-old batsman Misbah-ul-Haq for the veteran’s first match since being dropped after the World Twenty20 in May this year.

South Africa received a boost when fast bowler Morne Morkel recovered from an ankle injuiry and was included in the eleven, but allrounder Jacques Kallis and fast bowler Dale Steyn remained on the sidelines due to injury.

This is Pakistan’s home series shifted to the United Arab Emirates because of security fears.

The two teams play the second Twenty20 on Wednesday before playing five one-day internationals and two Tests.
