Imam, Inzamam's nephew, in line for Test debut
Nine batsmen have been included in the squad to counter the hard playing position in England.Azhar Ali, Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Sami Aslam have been included in the squad as opening batsmen.
Many are believing that a case of nepotism and favouritism is prevailing in Pakistan, as the current chief selectorInzamam-ul-Haq selected his nephew Imam-ul-Haq over Alam despite his average of 55 in first-class cricket. Despite it being one of his worst seasons in the domestic circuit, Fawad was the sixth highest run-scorer of the tournament with 570 runs at an average just above 40.
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. Attempting to make up for his absence will be Shadab Khan, who has played a solitary Test, against the Windies a year ago.
Spinner Shadab Khan has also been chosen to replace the injured Yasir Shah, who is set to miss the tour with a hip problem.
"Yasir's absence is a big loss for us", Haq said. "He played a big part in all the games we won". Hasan Ali, M Abbas and Rahat Ali are the other pacers in the squad, who also have to struggle hard to prove their selection right while there was no place for pacer Wahab Riaz. "I hope he recovers quickly from his injury because we have some big home Test series coming up after this series too, and we will need him in the UAE".
Pakistan are the opponents for Ireland's first Test match in Malahide, with the historic game getting underway on May 11.
Ever since Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced the squad that will be traveling to England and Ireland, the Pakistani loyalists are demanding justice. Pakistan will then play two Tests against England - at Lord's (May 24-28) and Headingley (June 1-5).
