Pakistan have handed maiden call-ups to legspinner Abrar Ahmed and fast bowler Mohammad Ali for the home Test series against England next month. The selectors also dropped Fawad Alam and Hasan Ali, who had been part of the Sri Lanka tour in July earlier this year.
The first Test will begin on December 1 in Rawalpindi followed by the second in Multan from December 9 and third in Karachi from December 17. The opening Test will be England’s first on Pakistan soil in 17 years, and will go ahead in Rawalpindi as planned originally, after the potential of a political unrest had raised the prospects of a switch to Karachi.
