Fit-again Yasir Shah returns to Pakistan ODI team
ISLAMABAD (AP) Fit-again legspinner Yasir Shah is in the Pakistan squad to face Zimbabwe in five one-day internationals next month.
Yasir missed Pakistan’s tour of Ireland, England, and Scotland due to a stress fracture of his hip but has fully recovered.
Before the ODI series, Pakistan will play in a Twenty20 tri-series in Zimbabwe, which also features Australia, starting from July 1.
Chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq said Mohammad Hafeez was picked in the T20 and ODI squads because the allrounder has cleared his bowling action.
The tri-series will be played from July 1-8, while Bulawayo will stage all the five ODIs from July 13-22.
Babar Azam was in the ODI squad provided he recovers from a forearm injury he sustained during the test series against England.
The selectors have also named uncapped opening batsman Sahibzada Farhan in the T20 squad.
