Inzamam's nephew picked for tour of England

The exclusion of 32-year-old Fawad Alam - who has a first-class batting average of over 55 - from the Test squad for the England and Ireland tour announced on Sunday left Twitter users and sports journalists in Pakistan searching for answers.

The 16-member squad also includes Champions Trophy hero Fakhar Zaman, Saad Ali and Usman Salahuddin.

Faheem Ashraf, the uncapped all-rounder, was also included in the Test squad on the back of some impressive performances in the shorter formats of the game. While Imam has been given a chance in the longest format of the game after his blistering century on his ODI debut against Sri Lanka late past year, Ashraf has been included in Test squad on the back of some impressive performances in the shorter formats of the game. His highest score of 232 came earlier this season. Leg-spinner Shadab Khan will fill in for slow-bowling spearhead Yasir Shah who is out with a hip injury.

Alam, among the 25 players called up for the training camp recently held in Lahore, scored an impressive 19 in the Yo-Yo Endurance Test, ahead of skipper Sarfraz and much younger players Hassan Ali, Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman.
