Pakistan to announce initial 20-member squad for home Test series against SAPTI | Karachi | Updated: 14-01-2021 21:24 IST | Created: 14-01-2021 21:24 IST
Wasim said the squad will be reduced to 16 players after a week.
The former batsman, who has played 18 Tests, said the performance of the players during the recent tour of New Zealand and of those in domestic cricket would be taken into consideration in the selection of the squad.
He said importance will be given to those who had performed well in the just concluded Quaid-e-Azam Trophy first class tournament.
A reliable source said that some changes can be expected in the Pakistan Test squad with top domestic performers like spinners Zahid Mahmood and Nauman Ali, pacer Waqas Maqsood and batsmen like Saud Shakeel, Kamran Ghulam and Usman Salahudin are likely to be included in the initial 20-member squad.
