Australia bat against Pakistan in first one-day Match

Australian skipper Michael Clarke won the toss and elected to bat in the first one-day international against Pakistan at the Dubai Stadium here on Wednesday.

Clarke is standing in for regular skipper Ricky Ponting in the One day International series, which was moved to the United Arab Emirates after Australia refused to tour Pakistan owing to security fears.

All-rounders Andrew Symonds and Shane Watson, as well as pacer Stuart Clarke, returned for Australia after missing the last few months due to fitness problems and injury.

Pakistan selected for medium fast bowler Rao Iftikhar instead of slinging left-arm paceman Tanvir, and also included off-spinner Saeed Ajmal in their squad.

The only Twenty20 international will be played here on May 7.
