The Pakistan squad for the upcoming Test series against Sri Lanka will be announced tomorrow (23), said Chief Selector Inzamam-ul-Haq.

Fitness concerns continue to loom over Test opener Azhar Ali and leg-spinner Yasir Shah ahead of the two-Test series beginning from September 28.

Yasir Shah struggled to impress team management and coaches at the training camp at the Gaddafi Stadium, and is due to undergo a fitness test soon.

“Yasir Shah is an important bowler, that’s why we are waiting for his fitness test,” said Inzamam.

About Azhar, who is struggling to overcome a knee injury, the chief selector said the batsman’s fitness has improved. It remains to be seen if the selectors decide to rest him to allow for his complete recovery.

Inzamam also said five fast bowlers will be selected in the squad.
