Inzamam's nephew gets call-up to Pakistan Test squad

Chief Selector Inzamamul Haq on Sunday announced the Test squad for the upcoming tour of England and Ireland but super-fit batsman Fawad Alam did not make the cut yet again. The fresh talent Muhammad Abbas, Hassan Ali, Faheem Ashraf and Rahat Ali are also part of the 16 man squad. His medium pace will be a useful addition in seamer-friendly conditions.

Batting trio Fakhar Zaman, Usman Salahuddin and Saad Ali could all be handed debuts on the trip, while there is also a place for left-hander Imam-ul-Haq, the nephew of former captainInzamam-ul-Haq who is now chief selector for the national team. His highest score of 232 came earlier this season.

The other new faces in the 16-member squad include batsmen Fakhar Zaman, Saad Ali and Usman Salahuddin.

Fast bowler Wahab Riaz, 32, is omitted, with leg-spinner Yasir Shah injured.

Haris Sohail, who retains his place after he made his debut in the home series loss against Sri Lanka previous year, may also find himself in a crucial all-round role with his part-time spin.

"If we look at his numbers (of wickets) for the last two years, he has more wickets than any other bowler for Pakistan". Other than Shadab, he is the only player in the squad capable of providing a spin option of any potency, and may find himself being turned to if Pakistan are to avoid overburdening Shadab.

Pakistan are the opponents for Ireland's first Test match in Malahide, with the historic game getting underway on May 11.

Left-armer Wahab, who has taken 25 wickets in eight Tests against England, was criticised over his work ethic by Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur.
