Summary

  • Azhar Ali and Yasir Shah have managed to retain their spots after proving fit for the Pakistan cricket team’s upcoming Sri Lanka challenge while fast bowler Wahab Riaz is also set to make a comeback.
  • It is worth noting that fitness scares had been looming over the Pakistan team ahead of the vital Sri Lanka series, with ace leg-spinner Yasir Shah failing to pass the test and Azhar Ali being on the side-lines due to a ‘knee injury.’
  • Speaking about both these players managing to make it back into the team despite earlier reports, Inzamam said that both had been cleared by the doctors and that Yasir had managed to clear his fitness test.
  • Azhar Ali’s return to health will also elicit a combined sigh of relief from the Pakistan camp, and especially skipper Sarfraz Ahmed, as he leads the team through its rebuilding phase.
  • Sarfraz, who has said that he would try to lead by the example set by Misbahul Haq but on his own terms, seems to be in gear to get the ball rolling for a new Pakistan team.
