Australia Cricket Board has included their all-rounder James Faulkner to test squad for their upcoming two match series against Pakistan in UAE.
Faulkner was included in the squad as their first choice and second choice all-rounders Shane Watson and Mitchell Marsh respectively suffered from hamstring injury taking out of the whole tournament against Pakistan.
Faulkner has played just a single test match for Australia back in 2013 against England in the Oval where Australia lost the Ashes series by 3-0. Fulkner is one of the important member of the squad who has won one-off T20s and first two One Day Internationals against Pakistan which is ongoing in UAE.
Australia will play two test matches series against Pakistan from October 22-26 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai and from October 30-November 3 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.
