opening batsmen Taufeeq Umar and
Mohammad Hafeez yesterday and
named three uncapped players for the
16-man squad for the first Test against
The 33-year-old Umar has played
43 tests but the left-hander last com-
peted for his country against Sri Lanka
The first of two Tests starts Wednes-
day in Dubai where Hafeez is also likely
to make a comeback after being ignored
for the August series against Sri Lanka,
which Pakistan lost 2-0.
"Taufeeq and Hafeez have been
recalled due to their experience," chief
selector Moin Khan said. "Taufeeq was
last dropped due to fitness instead of
form, but was not selected for the Sri
Lanka tour considering the opposition,
conditions and team requirement."
Khan said Hafeez offers flexibility in
the absence of Saeed Ajmal, who has
been suspended by the ICC due to his
illegal bowling action.
"Hafeez gives the captain an extra
spin option," Khan said.
SHARJAH---Australia Test captain
Michael Clarke flopped for the sec-
ond successive time as Pakistan A
romped to a 153-run victory on the
last day of its four-day warm-up
match against Pakistan A yesterday
in the United Arab Emirates.
Clarke, who scored 10 in the first
innings, could make only 5 runs in
the second innings before he was
dismissed by fast bowler Rahat Ali
with Australia dismissed for 185.
The warm-up game was the only
opportunity for Clarke to prepare for
the two-test series, starting Wednes-
day, after he missed the one-day
series due to a hamstring injury sus-
tained against Zimbabwe in August.
Needing 339 runs for victory in a
minimum 90 overs on the last day,
Australia s top order crumbled to 49-
3 before opening batsman Phillip
Hughes (65) and Mitchell Marsh (35)
Opening batsman Chris Rodgers
was run out in the first over, Clarke
departed in the third while Glenn
Maxwell (18) hit three boundaries
before Mohammad Talha (3-32)
found the outside edge inside the
Australia s middle-order collapsed
against left-arm spinner Raza Hasan
(3-60), who struck off successive
deliveries by getting edges off Marsh
and James Faulkner to the slips.
Hasan brightened his chances of
making his test debut in the absence
of the suspended Saeed Ajmal when
he had Peter Siddle (41) caught
Talha then quickly folded the
innings by claiming the last two
wickets as Australia was bowled out
just before tea.
It was Australia s first defeat on
the tour after beating Pakistan in the
one-off Twenty20 and also recording
a 3-0 win in the one-day series.
SYDNEY---Tasmania state open-
er Ben Dunk scored the first dou-
ble century in Australian domes-
tic limited-overs cricket with 229
not out in a losing cause yesterday
Exactly 800 runs were scored
in the match at North Sydney Oval,
where the close boundaries often
lead to high-scoring games.
Dunk s total, leading Tasmania
to 398-1 in its 50 overs, was the
highest in the 46-year history of
the competition. It eclipsed the
previous record individual score
of 197 set by New South Wales
opener David Warner at the same
venue last season.
The 27-year-old Queensland-
born Dunk had 13 sixes in his 157-
ball innings. Dunk and fellow
opener Tim Paine (125) also set a
record with 277 for any wicket in
a domestic match.
Queensland, however, came
back to win by seven wickets, scor-
ing 402-3. Usman Khawaja picked
up 166 runs and Chris Hartley
added 142, with a 280-run part-
nership between the pair.
India s Virender Sehwag, who
scored 219 against the West Indies
on December 8, 2011 at Indore,
India, is the leading individual run-
scorer in a 50-over international
for 5 in his team's
153-run loss to

In the absence of Ajmal and
injured fast bowlers Wahab Riaz
and Junaid Khan, Pakistan will be
relying on its second-string fast
bowlers Rahat Ali and Mohammad
Talha, along with left-arm spinner
Zulfiqar Babar, on the slow wickets
of the United Arab Emirates.
Fast bowler Mohammad Irfan
was considered for selection, but
selectors decided not to take any
risk with the 2.16-meter (7-foot-
1) paceman as the World Cup is
just four months away in Aus-
"We considered Irfan (for test
matches) but decided not to
include him in order to preserve
him because we need to carefully
manage his workload before the
World Cup," Khan said.
Australia won the one-off
Twenty20 and routed Pakistan 3-
0 in the one-day series, mainly
due to the struggling form of Pak-
istan s middle order. Captain Mis-
bah-ul-Haq sat out the last ODI
due to lack of his batting form
which has seen Pakistan lose not
only the Test series in Sri Lanka
but also the ODI series.
However, the return of Test spe-
cialists Azhar Ali and Younis Khan
could bolster Pakistan s middle
order against Australia while Asad
Shafiq also scored a century in the
warm-up match. (AP)
