"I feel very sorry for him [Fawad] because before Inzamam took as chief selector, the previous heads [of the national selection committee] Mohsin Khan, Mohammad Ilyas and Haroon Rashid all ignored his rightful claims to play for Pakistan at the highest level", Latif said.

Opener Imam-ul-Haq has already made his ODI debut, where he scored a century against Sri Lanka last October and is set to make his Test debut during the English summer.

Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, who is Inzamam's nephew, Usman Salahuddin, Saad Ali and Faheem Ashraf are the new faces in the team. "We've kept two things in focus when deciding on the final touring squad for England".

"The World Cup next year is in England". During my tenure, I have given 12 to 14 players an opportunity and none of them have disappointed us.

"I hope he recovers quickly from his injury because we have some big home Test series coming up after this series too, and we will need him in the UAE". Shadab is the only specialist spin-bowling option in the squad, with Haris Sohail's part-time slow left-arm orthodox potentially a useful addition. I expect players that have been around for a long time to be winning us games and setting standards.

He was speaking to ESPNcricinfo where he said that while Fawad Alam is a good player but there have been better players than him who are being selected.

Fawad Alam, who has been once again ignored by the selectors despite the incredible record in domestic and worldwide cricket, tweeted that he will be cheering for Pakistan cricket team from home when they will take on Ireland and England. That will be followed by a 2-match Test series against England, the first of which will be played at Lords from the 24th of May.
