Pakistan pick five uncapped players for UK tour

Pakistan pick five uncapped players for UK tour

The five include openers Fakhar Zaman, 28, and Imam-ul-Haq, 22.

Fakhar Zaman, Faheem Ashraf, Imam Ul Haq, Usman Salahuddin and Saad Ali are the five players who got their debut call from the national selectors.

"The World Cup next year is in England".

"This is a great opportunity for us, particularly our batsmen, to gain experience in this conditions".

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. He added that Fawad Alam is a good player but in the last few years other players have performed better.

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

The national team will depart on next Monday and will play one Test against Ireland and two Test matches against England.

Inzamam-ul-Haq said the current team selection was done under the supervision of the coaches during the training camps.

Yasir's absence is a big loss, if we look at his numbers for the last two years, he has more wickets than any other bowler for Pakistan. He was our strike bowler.

Haq said selectors had tried strengthen the side's batting, which was weakened after the retirement a year ago of Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan.

Azhar Ali, Asad Shafiq, Sami Aslam and Babar Azam form the crux of the batting unit with Sarfraz Ahmed captaining the side and keeping wicket.

Mohammad Amir will lead the pace attack, for which Rahat Ali was recalled, but there was no place for Wahab Riaz.

Pakistan start their tour with a four-day warm-up game against Kent before playing a historic one-off Test against Ireland.
