Pakistan announced 29-men squad for England tour

Karachi: Pakistan bowler Mohammad Amir and batsman Haris Sohail have pulled out of this summer's tour of England.

Amir, 28, will miss the series in order to be at the birth of his second child in August, while Sohail, 31, has withdrawn for family reasons.

Pakistan have named under-19 batsman Haider Ali in their extended 29-player squad for the tour.

They are due to play England in three Tests and three Twenty20 internationals in August and September.

Amir retired from Tests last year but continued playing international white-ball cricket. He has 259 wickets in 145 matches for Pakistan in all formats.

Haris has also played in all three formats, averaging 37.22 in Test cricket and 19.09 in T20 internationals.

Pakistan have recalled Sohail Khan, who has not played Test cricket since 2016, for the tour.

Four players have also been put on standby should anyone fail the pre-tour coronavirus testing later in June.
