All players from both sides are available for selection.
The pitch in Abu Dhabi is another good one to bat one though the pacers will enjoy bowling on this track early during the essay. One can expect the batsman to go for the big shots once they settle. With all that said, both sides will want to bowl first and make the best use of the given conditions.
