Pakistan squad announced for 2-Test series again Sri Lanka
Pakistan’s coach-cum-selector Misbah-ul-HaqcongratulatedFawad Alam for making his comeback to the Test squad, saying:
“I want to congratulate Fawad Alam on his selection for the Sri Lanka Tests. It is a reward for his continued hard work, perseverance and dedication to the game. His selection is not only a lesson to the emerging cricketers but also a testament of the selectors’ policy of valuing domestic cricket and rewarding consistent performers.”
Alam last played a Test match back in 2009 against New Zealand.
Meanwhile, Usman Shinwari who has represented Pakistan in the limited-overs formats, has also been called up to the Test squad. Talking about his inclusion, Misbah added:
“Usman Shinwari has been drafted into the side as he has been part of the Pakistan cricket team set-up for the past few years, which is backed up with his fitness, form and ability to bowl long spells at a good pace, which was evident during the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy. I am sure he will make up a good combination with Imran Khan, Mohammad Abbas, Naeem Shah and Shaheen Afridi.
