Pakistan include five uncapped players in Test squad

Fawad is GOOD but BETTER choice available says looking for BEST Inzamam

The 22-year-old - who made his ODI debut last year - earned a call-up for the tour of Ireland and England next month.

Cricket commentator Dennis Freedman trolled "ignored" Pakistani player Fawad Alam as he edited a video interview of him, recorded after he was dropped from the Test squad for team's upcoming tour of Ireland and England.

Zaman has established himself as a regular member in the limited overs squads and will be joined in the Test side by Imam-ul-Haq, Usman Salahuddin, Saad Ali and Faheem Ashraf.

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.

Pakistan Super League's (PSL) top performer Wahab Riaz has been excluded from the national squad, while the South Asian team will also miss the services of prolific leg-spinner Yasir Shah owing to a hip injury.

And now you know the full story, ' he said. "Is there ANYONE in the White House with an understanding of history?" he asked. Angus King said "it's impossible to say at this point" whether the United States' mission in Syria has been accomplished.

Azhar Ali, Asad Shafiq, Sami Aslam and Babar Azam form the crux of the batting unit with Sarfraz Ahmed captaining the side and keeping wicket.

Alam played his last Test match against New Zealand in 2009. "If we look at his numbers for the last two years, he has more wickets than any other bowler for Pakistan".

Dennis, who had launched a crowdfunding campaign previous year in a bid to visit Pakistan and help revive cricket in the country, uploaded a video of the left-arm spinner with captions, that did not attribute to what Fawad was saying. He was our strike bowler, all the games we've won he played a big part in.

Pakistan start their tour with a four-day warm-up game against Kent before playing a historic one-off Test against Ireland. Pakistan will then play two Tests against England - at Lord's (May 24-28) and Headingley (June 1-5).
