Shehzad and Masood added to Test squad
Ahmed Shehzad and Shan Masood, both yet to play a Test, have been added to the Pakistan squad for the Test series against South Africa in the UAE. Asad Shafiq, who has been a regular in the Test side for a while, was also named.
The PCB had announced a 12-man squad earlier this month that was to be expanded to 15 following the tour game between Pakistan A and South Africans, which ended in a draw in Sharjah. Masood and Shehzad opened for Pakistan A and made fifties while Shafiq scored 42.
While Shehzad has represented Pakistan in 27 ODIs and 15 T20s, 23-year old Masood is yet to debut for his country. Shehzad averages 41.04 in 50 first-class games while Masood's average in the format is 34.82 in 56 matches.
