Pakistan chief selector Mohammad Wasim said batsman Haris Sohail will strengthen the middle order.

Wasim noted this was the reason why he was recalled to the ODI team for the upcoming tours of England and the West Indies.

Haris last played for Pakistan during their tour of New Zealand at the beginning of the year.

However, with his fitness standards back at the required level and the middle order having been a growing area of concern for Pakistan, Wasim said it was time to bring the 32-year-old back, especially considering that he averages 46.80 in ODIs.

“Haris Sohail has reclaimed the required fitness standards. [The] middle order is an area of concern, which is why we have made changes to strengthen that area,” Wasim was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.

Pakistan will play three ODIs and three T20 Internationals against England. The ODI series will begin on July 8 and conclude on July 13, while the T20 series will be held from July 16 to 20.

The tour of the West Indies will consist of five T20 Internationals and two Tests, with the T20 series getting underway on July 27 and ending on August 3.

As for the Test series, it will start on August 12 and conclude on August 24.

  1. M. Wasim the chief selector does not know ABC of cricket, he did not select Danish Aziz in T20 or ODI. Plus says Haris Sohail will strengthen the middle order, what has Asad Shafique done not to get a recall. Oh yes I remember both Asad and Danish are Karachites. This injustice has been carrying on since long. Even Imran Khan has taasub towards Karachites.

  2. Wasim has a bias against the legendary all rounder Shoaib Malik. Pakistan cricket has been time and again destroyed by the whims and illogical egoes
