Pakistan Cricket Board on Friday announced a large 29-player squad for the three test and three Twenty20 internationals against England starting next month.

Under-19 batsman Haider Ali has been named in the squad for series against England to be played in August-September.

PCB selectors have named Faheem Ashraf, Fawad Alam, Imran Khan, Khushdil Shah, Mohammad Hafeez, and Wahab Riaz.

The selectors have also named four reserves in Bilal Asif, Imran Butt, Musa Khan, and Mohammad Nawaz as a cover in case any of the players fail pre-tour COVID-19 testing, which will be carried out on June 20 and 25.

The ECB has come up with extensive plans to keep Pakistan’s players in a bio-secure environment – likely to be in Birmingham initially – from the moment they land in the country.
