The test series will be a home series for
Pakistan but because of safety concerns in Pakistan, it will take place in . Haddin cannot play because of an elbow injury. England
This is a setback for the Aussies because Haddin is not only a good wicketkeeper but also he is a good batsman. His batting average of 38.78 in Test cricket is not bad for a wicketkeeper. He has scored 2 centuries and 5 half centuries in the 27 Test matches he took part. He has also taken 110 catches and 2 stumpings so far in the longer version of cricket.
On the other hand, 25 year old Tim Paine is yet to play in any test match. He has however played in just 19 ODI matches. So, it will be a big challenge for this young wicketkeeper.
