Pakistan will again rely on spinners Saeed Ajmal and Abdur Rehman to run through an underperforming batting lineup in the team's search of a first Test series whitewash against England.

Jonathan Trott (141) and Alastair Cook (109) are the only English batsmen to have crossed the 100-run mark in England's two heavy defeats in the first two Tests. Ajmal's offbreaks and the left-arm spin of Rehman exposed England's inability to bat on subcontinent-like turning wickets in this Gulf country by taking 29 wickets between them.

And Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq would like to see his spinners bowl with the same intensity in the third Test.

Aamer released
London: Pakistani cricketer Mohammad Aamer, convicted of spot-fixing, was released from a British jail after serving half of a six-month sentence for his part in the infamous spot-fixing scam.
