Australian captain Tim Paine has confirmed there’ll be three debutants named in the XI for the first Test against Pakistan, which starts on Sunday.
Aaron Finch, Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne will all make their Test debuts for Australia in what is an inexperienced squad.
There was talk of a fourth debutant, but Michael Neser has been overlooked from the side for the more experienced Peter Siddle, who will round out a bowling attack featuring two quicks and two spin bowlers in Jon Holland and Nathan Lyon. Siddle is joined by Mitchell Starc.

The changes in the Australian squad come on the back of the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa which saw suspensions handed out to David Warner, Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft, as well as injuries to Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins.
While the batting order hasn’t been confirmed by captain Paine, it’s assumed Aaron Finch will open up alongside Usman Khawaja, with Shaun Marsh to bat at first top, and the debutant duo of Head and Labuschagne to firm in the middle order.
The debut for Labuschagne comes after Matt Renshaw was rubbed out with a concussion and lack of match practice in the previous few months due to ongoing injury problems.
Mitchell Marsh and Tim Paine, the nation’s new leadership combination will round out the top seven in the batting order, fronting up as some familiar faces.
The first Test will begin at 5pm (AEST) in what will likely be very warm conditions at the Dubai International Stadium in the United Arab Emirates.
