Imam, Inzamam's nephew, in line for Test debut

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

Latif, who is considered among the best wicket-keepers of his era, also quizzed the selection of limited-overs specialist Fakhar Zaman, saying that the inclusion of another opener-with already three openers available in the squad- is a bad decision on the part of the selection committee.

The other players in line to make their Test debut on the tour are Fakhar Zaman, Saad Ali, Faheem Ashraf and Usman Salahuddin.

"The World Cup next year is in England".

The decision to snub Alam has been widely criticised as he has been one of the most consistent performers on the domestic circuit.

The omission of the 32-year-old, who had four outstanding seasons in the Quaid-e-Azam (QeA) trophy - Pakistan's premier four-day event - where he had averages of 40.71, 55.54, 56 and 71.90 respectively, saw Inzamam receive heavy criticism from different sections of the cricketing circles. "This is a great opportunity for us, particularly our batsmen to gain experience in these conditions", noted Inzamam. Alam last played a Test in 2009 and his last ODI was in 2015.

Shah was replaced with teenager Shadab Khan, who has only played one Test.

Meggen Sande said she contacted board member Eric Burin to discuss a matter regarding Nybladh, but he didn't reply, she said. School board president Mona Kirk said there were 15 completed applications received and six were selected from that pool.

Pointing out that "dropping any player doesn't mean we are disregarding them", Inzamam said there are "many more things we take into consideration". 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. People have expectations and they want to see their team win every game which brings a lot of responsibility on us.

Training camp of Pakistan cricket team for the Ireland and England tour will start at Gaddafi stadium Lahore on Wednesday.

All-rounder Faheem Ashraf is the other rookie named in a 16-man party that will be captained by wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfraz Ahmed.

Mohammad Amir will lead a relatively inexperienced pace attack, which includes Hasan Ali, Mohammad Abbas and Rahat Ali.

Pakistan will a Test against Ireland, which will the European side's first ever game in the longest format, in Malahide from 11-15 May. Pakistan will then play two Tests against England - at Lord's (May 24-28) and Headingley (June 1-5).
