Pakistani Test Team Squad against South Africa Series In UAE

Pakistani cricket team was thrashed in former series by a relatively immature test team – Zimbabwe and now it is looking to have a real game with World’s best test cricket team, South Africa. Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), announced test cricket squad under Misbah’s leadership to tackle South Africa .Pakistan's test team against South Africa

Interestingly, PCB has dropped Pakistan’s T20 captain Muhammad Hafeez owing t his poor performance in previous test series. Also, it was quite much needed to have a genuine test batting line-up against No.1 test bowling squad that include World’s best Test fast bowler, D. Steyn. Hafeez is no doubt a great batsman on his day but, after all, he is not a real test batsman and his batting style suits better for ODIs and T20s.

In replacement, PCB has done a fine job by including test batsmen likes of Azhar Ali and Khurram Manzoor and it is always great to have batsman like Younas Khan in the team. I would have also liked to see Umar Akmal in that squad but still this team is good for me.
