Pakistan on Thursday named a 12-player squad for the primary Check towards Bangladesh, which will get underway from Friday on the Ch. Zahoor Ahmed Cricket Stadium in Chittagong. Pakistan and Bangladesh will lock horns in a two-match Check collection. Pacer Hasan Ali, Abdullah Shafique and Nauman Ali are among the many names to be included within the 12-man squad for the primary Check. “Pakistan today announced their 12-player squad for the first Test against Bangladesh, which will be played at the Ch. Zahoor Ahmed Cricket Stadium, Chittagong from Friday. The match will start at 1000 local time,” Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) stated in an announcement.
The second Check between Pakistan and Bangladesh will begin from December 4 at Sher-e-Bangla Cricket Stadium Mirpur, Dhaka. In the meantime, Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has been dominated out of the primary Check.
Tamim Iqbal may also not be part of the squad as he was dominated out of the Check collection with a second fracture on his left thumb, sustained throughout an Everest Premier League match in October.
