Pakistan pick five uncapped players for UK tour

Pakistan selectors overlooked 32-year-old batsman Fawad Alam despite strong domestic form as they picked five uncapped players in the 16-man squad for their Tests against Ireland and England starting next month.

Batsmen Usman Salahuddin and Saad Ali, and all-rounder Faheem Ashraf are the other three uncapped members of the squad. While Imam has been given a chance in the longest format of the game after his blistering century on his ODI debut against Sri Lanka late a year ago, Ashraf has been included in Test squad on the back of some impressive performances in the shorter formats of the game.

Leg-spinner Shadab Khan replaced the injured Yasir Shah. "So we've made a decision to call up several young players to give them exposure to those conditions", chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq said at a press conference.
