The Pakistan team will assemble in Islamabad on June 25 and will undergo a seven-day preparation camp at the Pindi Cricket Stadium. The Pakistan team will reach Sri Lanka on July 6.

Pakistan chief selector Muhammad Wasim in a statement “We have selected this squad considering the conditions in Sri Lanka and have equipped the team with the best possible resources.

Our spin department is boosted with the return of Yasir Shah, who proved himself as a match-winner in Sri Lanka on our last tour, and Sajid Khan has made way for him.

The spin department also includes two spin all-rounders in, Mohammad Nawaz and Salman Ali Agha and left-arm orthodox Nauman Ali. Salman Ali Agha has shown consistent performances with the bat in the past three seasons, and he is a handy off-spin option”. 

“Our team has recently put strong performances in Bangladesh, and although results against Australia were not ideal, we displayed solid cricket, and for that reason, we have retained the core to instill consistency and continuity and have trimmed the squad size following the relaxation in Covid-19-induced travel restrictions.

These two matches are extremely crucial for our side as we have World Test Championship points at stake. I wish our boys all the best, and I am sure they will make us proud,” he added.

Notably, Pakistan senior spinner Yasir Shah has made his comeback after being sidelined following a thumb injury he sustained in the National T20 Cup last year.
