PCB announced test squad against West Indies in a press conference held in Karachi. Chief selector Inzamam Ul Haq announced a 14 men test squad to take part in home test series against West Indies in UAE. Babar Azam who scored 3 centuries in 3 ODI’s for Pakistan against West Indies is also included in test squad along with the spinner Mohammad Nawaz. Babar scored the most runs by any player in a 3 match ODI series. He scored 360 runs in a 3 match series which is higher than the previous best of Q de Kock who scored 342 runs in 3 ODI’s against India in 2013. Martin Guptill also scored 330 against England in 2013 and is on 3rd position in the list of highest scorers in 3 ODI for any country.

It is certain now that Babar Azam will make his debut in the 1st test match against West Indies in Dubai Cricket Stadium, UAE to be started on 13 October. It is due to the absence of Younis Khan who is recovering from Dengue fever. Remember Younis Khan was diagnosed from Dengue some 20 days ago in Karachi and was admitted to hospital. Although he is now recovered yet doctors advised him 10 days more rest.

Pakistan dropped Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Rizwan, Shan Masood and Iftikar Ahmed from the test squar against England. Ahmad Shehzad is once again ignored by selectors due to his bad performance. Talking to press conference Inzamam Ul Haq said that Shahid Afridi himself has to decide when he wants to leave cricket. He can only select a player in the team but it is not his authority to ensure him for a farewell match. So a player who served a country for 20 years himself should decide for his respectable retirement.

The 14 men test squad for Pakistan against West Indies is listed here.
