The royals of Pakistan will face an uphill task in their bid to get home after Pakistan batted India out in the Champions Trophy final.

Royals opener Imran Khan has been ruled out for the tournament after a series of scans.

Pakistan have lost three consecutive series and will be looking to avenge their defeat to India at the MCG in Australia last week.

Royal team-mate and India captain Mohammad Hafeez is also set to miss the match after undergoing surgery to repair a hernia injury.

Pakistan are yet to play a Test match in the UAE. 

It will be a rematch of the last-wicket clash in Pakistan.

The pair batted out the first two Tests of the series before losing 3-0 to the hosts.
