New faces in the Pakistan Test squad
LONDON: Pakistan named a relatively inexperienced side for their Test tours of England and Ireland. There were five uncapped players in the squad of 15, with eight others who had played only 20 Tests or fewer. Two of the five, Imamul Haq and Faheem Ashraf, earned their Test caps in the historic Test against Ireland in Malahide. The team did well to deny Ireland a win in their maiden Test match. But with the team now set to take on England in three Tests starting May 24 at Lord’s, the challenge only gets tougher for the young brigade. Here’s a closer look at what they have to offer.
