Pakistan head coach and chief selector Misbah-ul-Haq has revealed that left-arm seamer Wahab Riaz didn’t feature in the Test series against England simply because he wasn’t ready.
Wahab said that he was ready to make his Test comeback against England, but he ended up only playing one T20 International.
In that match, he did extremely well as he finished with figures of 2-26 off his four overs to help lead Pakistan to a five-run win.
“Wahab faced some problems due to COVID but eventually he made good progress there. But he couldn’t get ready for [the] Test matches. He performed well when he got a chance. He has a role in white-ball cricket, it’s up to him. Everyone saw his spell in the last match and his match-winning ability,” Misbah was quoted as saying by PakPassion.
