Pakistan name five uncapped players for Test tour of England

Pakistan name five uncapped players for Test tour of England

Fawad Alam, who averages impressive 55.35 in first-class cricket, has been ignored from the 16-man Pakistan Test squad which was announced by chief selector and former captain Inzamam-ul-Haq for a lone match against Ireland and two-match series against England. This is the reason why the squad features 5 uncapped players.

Having a tally of 10,742 runs at a staggering average of 55.37, Fawad is far more experienced than Imam, who might have made an impressive global cricket debut against Sri Lanka in October a year ago, was just able to muster 222 runs at a below-average of 27.75 in five games.

Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, who is Inzamam's nephew, Usman Salahuddin, Saad Ali and Faheem Ashraf are the new faces in the team. "So we've chose to call up several young players to give them exposure to those conditions", chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq said at a press conference. One, we've tried to strengthen our batting line-up.

"The World Cup next year is in England". So we've chose to call up several young players to give them exposure to those conditions. We've actually given an opportunity to a few others we thought were more suited to English conditions.

The Chilean midfielder assisted on two of United's goals, giving him three assists and a goal in his last two games. When the two teams last met in December, City beat their local rivals 2-1 at Old Trafford.

With spinner Yasir Shah sidelined by a hip problem, fellow slow bowler Shadab Khan - a regular for his country in their limited-overs sides - could get the chance to add to his solitary Test cap.

"Yasir's absence is a big loss for us", said Inzamam. "He played a big part in all the games we won". "I hope he recovers quickly from his injury because we have some big home Test series coming up after this series too, and we will need him in the UAE".

Left-armer Wahab, who has taken 25 wickets in eight Tests against England, was criticised over his work ethic by Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur. I expect players that have been around for a long time to be winning us games and setting standards. If you look back in the past three seasons, there are players who have scored more runs than Fawad Alam.

Fawad Alam, who has been once again ignored by the selectors despite the incredible record in domestic and global cricket, tweeted that he will be cheering for Pakistan cricket team from home when they will take on Ireland and England.
