Pakistan have named a much changed experimental squad for their forthcoming Test tour of Ireland and England.

There are no fewer than five uncapped players in the 16-man squad who take on Ireland at Malahide on May 11th.

In total the 16 players have a combined total of just 242 caps between them, making them one of the greenest travelling parties Pakistan have ever sent on tour, in conditions which are notoriously difficult in seam friendly conditions.

They have left out paceman Wahab Riaz, while leg-spinner Yasir Shah is injured.

Iman-ul-Haq, nephew of Pakistan legend Inzaman, is given his first opportunity.

  • Sarfraz Ahmed 38
