Pakistan Test squad for Sri Lanka tour
Chief Selector Haroon Rashid says that while selecting the Pakistan Test squad for the Sri Lankan tour, the selection committee considered key areas, such as suitability to play in varied playing conditions, potential to perform at international level, and current form and fitness and performance in the previous tours of Bangladesh.
Fawad Alam, Sami Aslam and some other players were also under consideration but could not be included though they remain on the selectors radar.
Rahat Ali, Sohail Khan and Sohaib Maqsood are still on the rehab after sustaining injuries and it is hoped that they would be available for selection in the near future.
Selection committee has also kept its options open in case of need for the 16th member keeping in mind the extreme weather conditions in Sri Lanka.
