England's top order has been quite fragile for a while: Azhar Ali

Jofra Archer will test the Pakistani batsmen Younis Khan

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) released a statement to reveal the list of names who will be on the chartered flight to Manchester, as well as an update on the situations of those who had previously tested positive for COVID-19. "Youngsters like Shaheen Shah Afridi, Naseem Shah or Muhammad Hasnain have vast potential to succeed in English conditions while we have plenty of experience as well in our bowling", he added.

"Except Jofra Archer Pakistan [batsmen] have faced all their bowlers [in Test matches] and also won matches in the presence of veteran bowlers like James Anderson and Stuart Broad plus Ben Stoke and Mark Wood. Though a tour to England has always been challenging our performances there on the last two tours [in 2016 and 2018] are encouraging and we will try to repeat those", Azhar told reporters during an online media talk held soon after a 20-member national squad was announced for the tour. "Youngsters like Shaheen Shah Afridi, Naseem Shah or Muhammad Hasnain have huge potential to succeed in English conditions while we have plenty of experience as well in our bowling", he added.

"Their bowling attack is brilliant in their own conditions and there is no doubt about it", Azhar said.

"Looking at their batting, their top order has been fragile for some time since Alastair Cook retired. So hopefully they will join the team quickly".

The first Test begins at Lord's on July 30, and the team leaves for the tour on Sunday with 20 players and 11 support staff, even as six out of the 10 coronavirus-infected cricketers returned negative when they were tested the second time.

The whole body is made of plastic and at the back, it has a rectangle-shaped camera bump and a fingerprint sensor. A sensible choice is given that it is a cheap phone and no more than the previous base price around $ 500.

The squad has a new pace battery with lanky Shaheen Shah Afridi as spearhead supported by 17-year-old Naseem Shah and Mohammad Abbas, who also played a key role on the 2018 tour.

Former spinner Mushtaque Ahmed is the spin bowling coach of the team.

The two teams will play three Tests and as many T20Is after the completion of England's three-match Test series against West Indies which starts July 8. Their expertise and knowledge can be utilised and they will be helping them. These players are Mohammad Hafeez, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Hasnain, Shadab Khan, Fakhar Zaman and Mohammad Rizwan. "I am confident about this", he added.

"It" s a matter of great happiness that we are getting to play again and travel to England", said Azhar. All six games will be played behind closed doors.
