Pakistan all-rounder Shoaib Malik has been included as the 16th member of the Test squad for the upcoming series against England in the UAE.

Malik, who last played a Test in August 2010, was picked on the request of the team management who were keen to have him in the side based on his current batting form in limited overs and as an extra bowling option.

A press release from the Pakistan Cricket Board stated that team manager Intikhab Alam had made the request to chief selector Haroon Rashid, stating that he and head coach Waqar Younis were in favour of Shoaib Malik being retained "given his present form in T20Is and the ODIs".

Rashid's recommendation was then approved by PCB chairman Shahryar Khan.
