Stokes, 24, fell on his shoulder while trying to take a difficult catch off Pakistani batsman Sarfraz Ahmed in the last session of the opening day at Sharjah stadium on Sunday, and walked off the field in great discomfort. (SCORECARD)

England team physiotherapist Craig de Weymarn inspected the injury before escorting the allrounder off the field.

England and Wales Cricket Board spokesperson confirmed Stokes will have a scan on his right shoulder on Monday.

Stokes is not part of the England one-day squad for the four-match series against Pakistan which follows the Tests and it will remain to be seen whether he can recover in time for the tour of South Africa next month.

England had an otherwise good day, as they dismissed Pakistan for a low total of 234 before surviving two overs to score four without loss.

Pakistan lead the three-match series 1-0 after winning the second Test in Dubai and drawing the first in Abu Dhabi.
