Arshad Khan, Shahid Nazir set to recall
Forgotten bowling duo of Pakistan cricket — Arshad Khan and Shahid Nazir — are expected to get a recall when Pakistan cricket selectors meet on Saturday to pick the 16-member squad for this month's tour of India.
Pakistan Cricket Board's Director (cricket operations) and manager designate for India tour, Saleem Altaf, confirmed from Lahore that the selection committee meeting was scheduled for Saturday afternoon but he was unsure if the team would be announced the same day.
"Now since we know that the tour will be delayed for four to five days, the selectors might also defer the announcement by a few days so that they can further be sure about the players against whom there are fitness question marks," Altaf said from Lahore.
Chairman of Selectors Wasim Bari insisted that he would be selecting a 16-man team for the Test series only.
"We will only pick the team for the first half of the tour and all the players appearing in the first-class cricket will be considered for selection," Bari said.
Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq said he will attend the selection committee meeting with a very clear mind.
"I know what I have to say. I can't say anything more at this stage except that I will stress for consistency."
