LAHORE – Pakistan Cricket Board on Wednesday announced the squad for the New Zealand Tests, starting December 27 as first-choice players returned to the squad for the crucial contest.
Uncapped middle-order hitter Kamran Ghulam was given his maiden Test call-up while Hasan Ali returned to the squad after having missed a major game as he was struggling with his form.
Hasan was previously dropped for the home series after picking up only five wickets in several matches.
Pakistan made little changes in the squad as key speedsters Shaheen Shah Afridi, and Haris Rauf were rested due to injuries.
In a press release, Pakistan Cricket Board said Kamran Ghulam has replaced Azhar Ali, who announced his retirement last week, while Hasan Ali has taken over from Mohammad Ali, who, like Faheem Ashraf, has been advised to participate in the ongoing Pakistan Cup in Karachi.”
Full Squad: Babar Azam (captain), Abdullah Shafique, Abrar Ahmed, Hasan Ali, Imamul Haq, Kamran Ghulam, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Rizwan, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Naseem Shah, Noman Ali, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Salman Ali Agha, Saud Shakeel, Shan Masood and Zahid Mehmood
