Ajmal Selected To Play All Formats Of Pakistan Tour Of Bangladesh

Ajmal Selected To Play All Formats Of Pakistan Tour Of Bangladesh

Spin wizard Saeed Ajmal has been included in the Pakistan Test, ODI and T20 squads for the tour of Bangladesh during April and May.

Ajmal will be making his international comeback after his remodelled action was approved at the ICC biomechanics centre in Chennai in February.

Director of Cricket Steve Rhodes expects the 37-year-old to play at some stage of the 2015 campaign for Worcestershire for whom he took 63 wickets in nine LV = County Championship matches last summer.

But his unavailability at the start of the season will mean Rhodes stepping up his plans to bring in a different overseas player during that period.

Ajmal's last appearance for his country was in the first test of the series against Sri Lanka in Galle last August.

Misbah will skipper the Test side, Azhar Ali will be the captain in the ODIs and Shahid Afridi will lead the T20 side.

Test Squad: Babar Azam, Muhammed Hafeez, Sami Aslam, Misbah-ul-Haq, Asad Shafique, Azhar Ali, Younis Khan, Haris Sohail, Saeed Ajmal, Yasir Shah, Zulfiqar Babar, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Wahab Riaz, Junaid Khan, Sohail Khan and Rahat Ali.

ODI Squad: Sami Aslam, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Muhammad Hafeez, Asad Shafique, Fawad Alam, Azhar Ali, Muhammad Rizwan, Haris Sohail, Sohaib Maqsood, Saeed Ajmal, Yasir Shah, Wahab Riaz, Rahat Ali, Ehsan Adil and Sohail Khan.

T20 Squad: Ahmed Shehzad, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Muhammad Hafeez, Mukhtar Ahmed, Sohaib Maqsood, Haris Sohail, Muhammad Rizwan, Saeed Ajmal, Shahid Afridi, Sohail Tanveer, Saad Nasim, Wahab Riaz, Sohail Khan, Umer Gul and Junaid Khan.

Pakistan will play three ODIS on April 17, 19 and 22, a single T20 international on April 24 and two Tests beginning on April 28 and May 6 respectively.
