Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Wednesday (February 9) announced Pakistan’s squad for the upcoming home series against Australia.

The 16-man squad comprises a mix of experienced players and youngsters led by Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan as his deputy. 


Selectors have called in Haris Rauf and Shan Masood in the 16-man squad for the series which will begin next month at Rawalpindi. Rauf was the last part of Pakistan’s Test squad for the South Africa and Zimbabwe series last year, and he now replaces spinner Bilal Asif in the squad. 


While Shan Masood comes in as a replacement for Abid Ali, who is currently recovering after diagnosing with Acute Coronary Syndrome.


“We have opted for consistency for the important home series against Australia and changes have only been made where absolutely necessary,” Chief selector Muhammad Wasim said. 


“This is to give the boys confidence, reward them for their impressive performances in the longer version of the game in 2021, and continue to build the side for the future. These are the best available, most talented, and in-form players in the domestic circuit. I am confident they will put up an impressive performance against a formidable Australia side” he added. 


Yasir Shah, who last played for Pakistan in August 2021, against West Indies also finds a place as a stand-by player in the squad. Others named as stand-by players are: Kamran Ghulam, Mohammad Abbas, Naseem Shah, and Sarfaraz Ahmed.
