<p style="font-weight: bold;">DUBAI: Pakistan and Australia look to build up their squads in the shortest format of the game when they meet in the lone Twenty20 International here on Sunday, but both are missing key men.<\/p>\r\nPakistan, who were World Twenty20 champions in 2009, will be without their key spinner Saeed Ajmal who is suspended from international cricket after his bowling action was found illegal last month.\r\n\r\nAjmal had been single-handedly shouldering Pakistan\u2019s bowling attack, having taken 85 wickets in 63 Twenty20 matches \u2014 the highest by any bowler in this format.\r\n\r\nThe wily spinner has missed only three T20 matches out of the 66 Pakistan have played since his debut in 2009.\r\n\r\nIf Ajmal\u2019s loss wasn\u2019t enough, spinner and all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez was also ruled out of the Twenty20 and three one-days after injuring a hand during a practice game on Friday night.\r\n\r\nTwenty20 captain Shahid Afridi said Hafeez\u2019s loss added more responsibilities onto the team\u2019s youngsters.\r\n\r\n\u201cHafeez always plays a key role and it\u2019s unfortunate to lose him,\u201d said Afridi on Saturday at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. \u201cBut this gives an opportunity to youngsters to fill in and show their talent. I am confident with the side we have.\u201d\r\n\r\nPakistan team manager-cum-chief selector Moin Khan said Hafeez\u2019s loss was a big blow.\r\n\r\n\u201cHafeez is an important player for us in Twenty20 and one-days,\u201d Moin said. \u201cHe injured his webbing and has been advised to take a two week rest. The physio\u2019s report suggested a minimum two weeks rest, which ruled him out of the limited-overs part of the series against Australia.\r\n\r\n\u201cThe team management had thus unanimously decided that there was no point in retaining him on the tour. \u201c\r\n\r\nPakistan had a miserable World Twenty20 in Bangladesh in April where they failed to reach the last four for the first time in five editions of the tournament.\r\n\r\nThat prompted captain Hafeez to step down, handing the responsibility to all-rounder Shahid Afridi for a second time.\r\n\r\nPakistan have included left-arm spinner Raza Hasan to replace Ajmal and also have an exciting leg-spinning all-rounder in Saad Nasim who is uncapped at this level.\r\n\r\nAfridi hopes he will be able to guide the young squad towards the 2016 World Twenty20.\r\n\r\n\u201cWe don\u2019t have to look back, who is not available. We have to think of rebuilding the squad for the 2016 World Twenty20,\u201d said Afridi.\r\n\r\nAustralia too have a new captain in Aaron Finch who took over after George Bailey stood down to concentrate on one-day cricket.\r\n\r\nAustralia also went out of the last World Twenty20 in the group stages but they have won six out of their nine shorter format games this year compared to Pakistan\u2019s two from four.\r\n\r\nFinch also has a young squad at his disposal after experienced all-rounder Shane Watson was ruled out of the full tour with an ankle injury.
