The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chief Selector Muhammad Wasim has announced the squad for the upcoming three-match Test series against England.
Star pacer Shaheen Afridi has been left out of the 18-member squad due to a knee injury, which he suffered during the T20 World Cup 2022 final against England on November 13.
The England team will arrive in Pakistan on November 27 for the much-anticipated tour, with the first Test set to begin on December 1 in Rawalpindi.
