ABU DHABI: Pakistan and England will clash with each other in the four-match one-day international series which kicks off here on Monday.

England will bid to put their woeful showing in the Test series behind them when they take on Pakistan in the one-day series, captain Alastair Cook said Sunday.

Pakistan blanked England 3-0 in Tests on the back of superb performance from their spinners with Saeed Ajmal (24 wickets), Abdul Rehman (19) and Mohammad Hafeez (five) plaguing rival batsmen no end.

Pakistan have been further boosted by the return of leg-spinner Shahid Afridi who took five wickets in their seven-wicket win in the lead-up match against Afghanistan in Sharjah on Friday.

Cook, who took over as captain after the 2011 World Cup, suffered a 5-0 thrashing in India but hoped that loss and defeat in Tests against Pakistan were forgotten.

The remaining matches will be played in Abu Dhabi (February 15) Dubai (February 18 and 21). The teams will also play three Twenty20 internationals in Dubai (February 23 and 25) and Abu Dhabi (February 27).
