Five uncapped players in Pakistan's Cricket Test squad

Wahab Riaz responds Mickey Arthur criticisms Pakistan cricket

The four openers, including Chief Selector Inzamam-ul-Haq's nephew Imam, Saad Ali, Fakhar Zaman and Fahim Ashraf, are going to play Test matches for the first time.

Fakhar Zaman, Faheem Ashraf, Imam Ul Haq, Usman Salahuddin and Saad Ali are the five players who got their debut call from the national selectors.

Faheem Ashraf, the uncapped all-rounder, was also included in the Test squad on the back of some impressive performances in the shorter formats of the game.

Syria: missiles fired at air base near Homs
Israeli interventions: Tel Aviv has carried out multiple airstrikes on Syrian government targets during the conflict. Overall, the United Nations estimates that 13 million Syrians including six million children need humanitarian aid.

Having a tally of 10,742 runs at a staggering average of 55.37, Fawad is far more experienced than Imam, who might have made an impressive global cricket debut against Sri Lanka in October past year, was just able to muster 222 runs at a below-average of 27.75 in five games.

Mohammad Amir will lead the pace attack, for which Rahat Ali was recalled, but there was no place for Wahab Riaz.

Earlier, Pakistan suffered a major setback last week when ace leg-spinner Yasir Shah was ruled out of the tour with a hip bone fracture. The 22-year-old - who made his ODI debut last year - earned a call-up for the tour of Ireland and England next month.

Latest National Weather Service update on weekend storms
Radar showed circulation in a thunderstorm near the Catawba River around 3:30 p.m., Observer correspondent Steve Lyttle reported. On top of the tornadoes we also had over 150 reports of large hail and thunderstorm wind damage as well.

"We have tried to strengthen our batting and also considered giving a chance to youngsters [on the tour] as the next World Cup is in England", said Inzamam while justifying his selection.

Yasir's absence is a big loss, if we look at his numbers for the last two years, he has more wickets than any other bowler for Pakistan. "I hope he recovers quickly from his injury because we have some big home Test series coming up after this series too, and we will need him in the UAE". Shadab is the only specialist spin-bowling option in the squad, with Haris Sohail's part-time slow left-arm orthodox potentially a useful addition. Pakistan will then play two Tests against England - at Lord's (May 24-28) and Headingley (June 1-5).
