Pakistan squad for the tour of England and West Indies has been announced. Azam Khan, son of former wicketkeeper batsman Moin Khan, has been included in the T20 squad. Simultaneously, Imad Wasim has returned to the one-day squad for T20 and Haris Sohail. The selectors for the two Tests against the West Indies have once again put their trust in Yasir Shah and named him in the squad. However, their choice depends on fitness testing.

Fast bowlers Mohammed Abbas and Naseem Shah have also returned to the squad for the two-Test series against the West Indies in Jamaica. Abbas and Naseem have been ignored in the two Test matches played in Zimbabwe recently. Azam’s name on the T20 team is shocking because he has only played one first-class match so far. However, he has played 36 T20 matches and has the image of a batsman with big shots. He has played in the Pakistan Super League and the Sri Lanka Premier League.

The selectors have named Yasir Shah, an experienced leg-spinner in the two-Test squad, but his final selection will be based on his passing the fitness test. He was also overlooked on a tour of Zimbabwe due to a knee injury. Pakistan will play three one-dayers and several T20s during their tour of England from July 8 to 20.
