Imam, Inzamam's nephew, in line for Test debut

Fakhar Zaman has played 13 ODIs and 15 T20 Is for Pakistan

Most Twitter users criticised the selection of Saad Ali - Karachi based upper order batsman who was the highest run-scorer in last year's Quaid-e-Azam Trophy - and Chief Selector Inzamamul Haq's nephew Imamul Haq, both of whom have an average much less than Fawad's in the domestic circuit.

Fawad was among the fittest cricketer in the fitness tests camp held at the National Cricket Academy for the cricketers ahead of the test tours.

Batsmen Usman Salahuddin and Saad Ali could also make their Test debuts as Pakistan aim to rebuild their Test team after the retirements of Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan.

Vincent Kompany delivers epic victory speech to Manchester City fans and players
There was a period of adaptation for him coming into the league and for us taking in his methods. And he led Bayern Munich to Bundesliga glory in each of his three years at the Allianz Arena.

Despite it being one of his worse seasons in the domestic circuit, Fawad was the sixth highest run-scorer of the tournament with 570 runs at an average just above 40. Shah was replaced with teenager Shadab Khan, who has only played one Test. "Yasir's absence is a big loss for us", Haq said. Other than Shadab, he is the only player in the squad capable of providing a spin option of any potence, and may find himself being turned to if Pakistan are to avoid overburdening Shadab.

"This is a great opportunity for us, particularly our batsmen, to gain experience in this conditions". The absence of Yasir Shah meant Pakistan brought in Shadab Khan, who, within a year, has become the leading spinner of the side's limited-overs attack, but has played a solitary Test so far. He was our strike bowler, all the games we've won he played a big part in.

Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Abbas, Hasan Ali and Rahat Ali were four pace bowlers selected with left-arm quick Wahab Riaz left out after coach Mickey Arthur questioned his work ethic.

Ireland play their inaugural Test against Pakistan in Malahide from May 11th-15th before they take on England in Tests at Lord's (May 24th-28th) and Headingley (June 1st-5th).
