Fawad Dropped While Five Uncapped Players Picked For England and Ireland Test

APPRECIABLE RECORD Fawad 32 is currently Pakistan’s best domestic batsman with an average of 55.37 in first-class cricket and has piled up 10,742 runs in just 145 outings Inzamam's nephew Imam-ul-Haq named in Pakistan Test squad

While Imam has been given a chance in the longest format of the game after his blistering century on his ODI debut against Sri Lanka late past year, Ashraf has been included in Test squad on the back of some impressive performances in the shorter formats of the game.

All-rounder Fawad Alam failed to make the cut yet again, even though he has been performing consistently for the last few seasons.

Fawad was among the fittest cricketer in the fitness tests camp held at the National Cricket Academy for the cricketers ahead of the test tours.

The younger ul-Haq is a left-handed batsman, unlike his uncle, and he announced his arrival with a match-winning ton on ODI debut.

Joining Imam-ul-Haq are fellow uncapped batsmen Fakhar Zaman, Saad Ali, Faheem Ashraf and Usman Salahuddin.

Sussex weather forecast for the week ahead
As we approach and then go into the weekend, big changes will be coming with the approach of a strong upper-level storm system. A cold front may sweep through on Friday or Friday night which could generate a few showers at that time.

Ali, on the other hand, received the call-up on the back of his impressive form in Pakistan's first-class circuit, having amassed 3,473 runs in 50 games he played at an average of 46.93. Fawad Alam could have been included, especially as Pakistan's middle order underperformed against Sri Lanka.

In three Test matches, why is there a need of four openers?

Pakistan will be without the services of Yasir Shah, who misses out due to a hip injury.

"The World Cup next year is in England". As a result, Shadab Khan, who has played one Test to date, will assume the role of Pakistan's frontline spinner.

The chief selector of Pakistan cricket team, Inzamam Ul Haq selected five uncapped players for the all-important tour of UK. He added that this is a great opportunity for the young batsmen to gain experience. "If we look at his numbers for the last two years, he has more wickets than any other bowler for Pakistan. He played a big part in all the games we won". When asked whether Wahab was excluded because of Head Coach Mickey Arthur's recent criticism of the player, Inzi said the pacer "has not performed well recently".
