Mohammad Wasim, the chief selector, has announced the 18-man squad for the PAKvEng three-match Test series later this month. Two new players, Mohammad Ali and Abrar Ahmed, have been selected in the national squad for an international series for the first time.
Despite being regarded as Pakistan’s hidden talent, many cricket fans are still unaware of who Mohammad Ali is.
Mohammad Ali is a right-arm pace bowler who was born on November 1, 1992, in Sialkot.
The 30-year-old fast bowler has appeared in 22 first-class matches and taken 85 wickets, including a career-high 6/52.
During the ongoing Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, Mohammad Ali is demonstrating his class with the bowl, as he is the tournament’s second-highest wicket-taker, trailing only the young talent Abrar Ahmed.
With an average of 22.78 and an economy of 3.27, the pace bowler has taken 32 wickets in eight games.
He has been named to the national squad for the Test series against the three lions as a result of his outstanding performance in the current domestic tournament.
The three Tests are scheduled to take place in Rawalpindi (1-5 December), Multan (9-13 December), and Karachi as part of the ICC World Test Championship (17-21 December).
