Earlier, PCB Chief Selector Muhammad Wasim announced the 18-player squad for the three-Test home series against England.
Mystery spinner Abrar Ahmed and fast bowler Mohammad Ali have been rewarded for their strong first-class performances with maiden Test call-ups on the back of their thrilling performance in Quaid-e-Azam Trophy editions.
Uncapped Mohammad Wasim Jnr and Zahid Mehmood, who were part of the Test side for the three Tests against Australia earlier in the year, are the other two players to return to the side.
Pace bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi was unavailable for selection after he underwent appendicitis surgery, which will require three-four weeks’ rest following which he will resume his two-week rehabilitation on his right knee.
