Pakistan in West Indies, 2011 May 2, 2011

Salman, Junaid and Azam get Test call-ups

ESPNcricinfo staff
  shares 46

Wicket-keeper Mohammad Salman, allrounder Hammad Azam and left-arm seamer Junaid Khan are the new faces in Pakistan's 15-member squad for the upcoming two-Test series against West Indies.

Misbah-ul-Haq who led the Test side creditably in the aftermath of the spot-fixing scandal, remains in charge. Salman, Azam and Junaid have all been, in effect, kept on after being blooded in the limited-overs leg of the West Indies tour.

The only minor surprise in the squad was the exclusion of Adnan Akmal, who has been the Test wicketkeeper in charge since his elder brother Kamran lost his place in the five-day format in the aftermath of the spot-fixing scandal last summer. Over four Tests against South Africa and New Zealand he performed well with the gloves, generally neat and clean and, importantly given his brother's faltering form, safe in taking 17 dismissals.

Though there was no big innings with the bat, there was a handy 44 in Hamilton earlier this year. His replacement has impressed behind the stumps in the ongoing ODI series but hasn't really had an opportunity to do so with the bat, having batted once in three ODIs upto the fourth game between the two sides.

There is a fair degree of stability from the last Test squad for New Zealand with the three newcomers the only changes. Sohail Tanvir has been replaced by Junaid and the continuing development of middle order batsmen Asad Shafiq and Azhar Ali means there is no place for Khurram Manzoor. Azam, for the first time since Yasir Arafat's brief Test flirtation in 2007-08, offers Pakistan a genuine Test all-round option - Shahid Afridi's one-Test comeback last year at Lord's notwithstanding.

Younis Khan, who was rested for the one-dayers, returns for the Tests, as does Umar Gul.

The first Test will be played from May 12 at Providence Stadium in Guyana, and the second will be played at Warner Park in St Kitts from May 20. The series is widely regarded as Pakistan's best chance to win their first-ever Test series in the Caribbean, against a weakened West Indies side that might be missing several key players.

Pakistan already have an unassailable lead in the five-match ODI series, having won the first three. West Indies won the lone Twenty20 fixture.

Squad: Misbah-ul-Haq (capt), Younis Khan, Taufeeq Umar, Mohammad Hafeez, Asad Shafiq, Azhar Ali, Mohammad Salman (wk), Saeed Ajmal, Abdur Rehman, Umar Akmal, Umar Gul, Wahab Riaz, Tanvir Ahmed, Junaid Khan, Hammad Azam

    @KeenObserver: Fawad is technically correct, but he lacks character. Oh! And he can't hit a 6 to save his life, at eden park Auckland even! I shudder to think of him on a perth track. Since fawad doesn't have infinitely better technique than Azhar and Asad, I don't see his place in the squad, especially when Azhar and Asad have a far stronger character. Sorry but I can't tolerate the man who didn't even have the grace to fall down fighting and made his terror so obvious. I don't think Imran Khan would have approved of such lily-livered players any more than I do. It's not that he can never impress me, he will just have to do an amazing job of it.

    @Masrur G. Syed: And what are you doing? After criticizing regional bias you're exhibiting it yourself? Do you have no national pride that you're showing your true colours on an international forum? @Zahidsaltin: Don't compare Afridi's bowling to Yuvraj's. Yuvraj is a part-timer and Afridi is a competent spinner. The 37-ball century prevented him from coming of age as a bowler sooner, and also from justifying his batting potential. It was the biggest tragedy of his life. Some time ago EVERYBODY agreed that more than one Akmal in the squad is a nuisance. @iftikhar93: Yes the seniors were doing well, but its important to blood juniors with the seniors still around to guide them, if we want to avoid going Australia's way.

    @Aina Maria Waseem - First, decide Fawad is technically bad or not performing well?? I feel both statements are wrong for him. He showed his character in internaltion and domestice cricket both thanks to Major_Hammad for his statistical work. They never given him chance so regular as they are giving to Ahmad Shaihzad infact they are continuously creating opportunities for him. I am not against Azhar Ali he is also a good batsman and top of that he is part of test squad but I feel Fawad iclusion would be a worth to test squad.

    @ Zahidsaltin, @ ahassan, and all other. GIVE A BREAK TO THESE young kids. These will be future for Pak Inshallah. Hammad proved in Unter19 and 3rd ODI that he deserves his spot then any other. If it wasn't for him nobody will give stand to Mishha (not at least pathetic Afridi) in 3rd ODI and this serious will be 2-2 now. Also What you ppls expect from Junaid on PLAIN BATTING TRACKS. Pitches where even Kamer Roach didn't take even a single wicket though he is FAST. I wish they keep Juniad in side and Waqar work hard with him as he did to make Mohammad Aamir what he became in the end.

  • POSTED BY iftikhar93 on | May 3, 2011, 12:09 GMT

    In my view Salman is a good choice for Pakistan, but the question mark lies on his batting performance. Adnan should be kept as a test wicket keeper because he was looking better than salman as a batsman. There was no such requirement of bringing new players in test series, seniors were already doing a good job in tests. Whatever, we are concerned with the victory of Pakistani's. NO matter who play.

  • POSTED BY on | May 3, 2011, 10:48 GMT

    I think Salman has done an EXCELLENT job behind the stumps so far. Yes Adnan did equally well but that's neither here nor there. Its just a habit with fans to complain. Yousuf and Shoaib were great players and deserved the sort of send-off lanka gave to Muralitharan, so yes that is a sad aspect. @AmjadZork: True, Tanvir could have been replaced, but I think not by Sohail Tanvir but by Sadaf. A good pacer always thrives when thrown in at the deep end, so it would be a litmus test for him. Yousuf on his own would never play politics. Shoaib Malik, however, not only played politics but had lost all his batting skills into the bargain. @KeenObserver: Exactly!!! You said it yourself!!! fawad is technically sound but never performs. I never want a repeat of him almost crying like a baby in that match against South Africa in the UAE, especially since the same series reminds me of Abdurrazzaq's brave rescue, showing Fawad's weakness in sharp contrast.

  • POSTED BY on | May 3, 2011, 10:30 GMT

    @Ozman Mirza: True he only has a case in Tests, but with Azhar, Asad, Younis and Misbah, there really is no place for him. Asad has thus far shown much more character than Fawad ever had. @ahassan: Were you watching the same matches? Junaid needs more pace but he has something to teach the pacier Wahab, and that's discipline in his line and length. But the tests will decide who is a future prospect and who isn't. Give Hammad a break. He hardly got any chance to prove himself. ODIs are no place to show talent and skill. Yousuf is a legend and I'm sad at the manner of his exit, but Shoaib Malik is a politician and Ill never forgive him for instigating a revolt against the excellent Younis Khan. @Major_Hammad: Character is more important in batting than first class records. Azhar survived a tough tour of England so little can faze him now. With fawad the image that comes to mind is him sinking to the ground and hugging his bat in desperation as he can't make a few runs to win in the UAE.

  • POSTED BY Major_Hammad on | May 3, 2011, 10:25 GMT

    @ nzcricket174: Hmmmmmm, If stats are not important then I think so that Bradman avg should be 39, Ponting avg 27, Tendulkar avg 29 and Lara avg 26!!!!!!!!!!! What's the benifit of playing style if you could'nt manage Hundred in test matches, there is fault in technique that you fall every time before big score...... Fawad can score big hundreds in Test matches..... Pak played whole england tour and no pak batsman managed a Test Century in 6 matches, Younis came back and smashed Hundred against Africa in 1st match.... Younis playing style also not well but he scores big hundred and check his stats, avg 50+ in test matches, Pak don't need better style, Pak team needs big scores which help pak team to win the test matches...... You can win ODI or T20 matches by fifties but without big scores you can't win Test matches!!!!!!!! Stats are better bcz players play better overall.....

  • POSTED BY Zahidsaltin on | May 3, 2011, 9:01 GMT

    ABDUL RAZAQ is replaced by HAMMAD AZZAM. but why?? Hammad bowls at a lesser speed than Razaq and his batting is far inferior to razaqs. Razaq is a much better allrounder than even Afridi who doesn't ever score runs and although his bowlling worked in the WC (just as Yuvraj's did), is not a complete bowler. What did FAWAD ALAM did wrong to earn this behaviour from pcb. Adnan Akmal did a decent job but is discarded only because the selectors do not want two Akmals in the squad. Salman is not a futur as he is old and is poor with the bat. It seems as if he has a strong backing to be selected while Sarfraz and Adnan sit out. Tanvir might have been lucky in taking some wickets but he bowls at lesser speed than Razaq and is about 30 years of age. Talha or Khalil could have been a better choice. Not Selecting Usman Sallahuddin for tests is a shame. He and Naveed Yasin should have been given a chance and Younis and Misbah should have been rested. Hafiz could guard the team while Misbah was res

  • POSTED BY on | May 3, 2011, 8:54 GMT

    It seems like a decent team selection to me. However, I do feel disapointed when reading comments hinting towards regionalism. Someone has been posting comments aimed at a couple players from Karachi. Karachi teams figure prominently in the domestic competitions, but, their players don't seem to get a fair shake in selection. It has been going on since the late '80s. When someone mentions this, then the claim from certain quarters points to the lack of standards. If that is the case, then it can be used against certain selections, as well. If the standard is so low, then how come Lahore doesn't make a killing? given that players from Lahore seem to get more than a fair share of selections.

In current 11 Asad Shafiq and Hafeez (in my opinion) having good technique and rest of all.... you can understand. Javeid Miandad, Younis Khan was not technically very sound but they have courage and cricketing sense and ofcourse great performers. And what about Ijaz Ahmad was he a good performer or good techinical batsman? None!! but he played several years for Pakistan and was coach of under 19 team. Lolzz. Tell me now what is the fault of Fawad Alam when he is a regular performer??

    I think the playing XI is perfect although Abdul Razzaq should have been included & i wonder why Tanvir Ahmed is in the squad. Sohail Tanvir should have been a better option. Its good Mohd. Yousuf is not in the squad, i think Shoaib Malik & Yousuf have messed up the dressing rooms in the past. They have been playing politics & divinding the team into groups. 1 more important thing is Pakistan needs a proper Batting Coach. May be a Foreign coach to give some training specially to Shahid Afridi & the other guys. We want Shahid Afridi to become Boom Boom again...

    First of all Pak is playing against comparatively weaker opposition so good batting performances doesn't mean anything unless It is Against Aus or South Africa at their home ground. Fawad Alam and Azhar Ali both are excellent players and PCB should not loose them just like they did it with Misbah. They are young and should be given a lot of chances. Yousuf is our Asset and should be playing with Younus and Misbah in the Test side. We cannot say who is better b/w Salman, Adnan and Zulqarnain but Salman is in the playing eleven and his glove work is excellent so he should be continued for a while with anyone of the above his deputy. Pakistan is upward mobile and if taken care of seriously they will end up in the top 3 soon.

    Hammad and Junaid did not impress at all in the ODIs against West Indies and do not justify their selection in the Test squad. Hammad is just a mediocre allrounder who cannot be selected either for his bowling or for his batting. Adnan Akmal had performed quite well in Tests and his axing without reason is also surprising. It is now confirmed that PCB bosses have some personal grudge against Mohammed Yousuf and Shoaib Malik. Yousuf is a great cricketer and Shoaib is better than many of the selected players.

    I saw Yousuf playing for Warwickshire, here in UK, on Sunday. He seems to be enjoying his cricket, his bat flowing as beautifully as ever. He even took a catch! Its a travesty that he will not get to play 100 tests for Pakistan - one of the true modern greats! Its also not fair for Adnan Akmal. I watched him in New Zealand and I was very impressed with his glovework. He's a far better keeper than poor Kamran.

    I am baffled at how Muhammad Yousuf has once again not been included in the test squad. After begging him to come out of retirement when in trouble in England, and him adding stability to the batting order whey drop him? Hes proved himself over and over again when given stability that is the reason he holds most runs in a calender year which was a feat held for 30 years by Viv Richards. Its just sad how Pakistan selectors neglect their living legends.
