Jamshed, Irfan left out of Pakistan Test squad - Cricket News
Nasir Jamshed has been left out of Pakistan's Test squad.
Nasir Jamshed and Mohammad Irfan were left out of Pakistan’s 15-member Test squad for the Zimbabwe tour later this month. Khurram Manzoor, the opener who last played for Pakistan during their tour of Australia in 2010, replaced Jamshed, who scored just 51 runs in the two Tests he played against South Africa in February. Pakistan had suffered a 3-0 whitewash in the Test series in South Africa.

Haris Sohail, Sarfraz Ahmed, Taufeeq Umar and Umar Gul are the other players from the South Africa tour who failed to make it to the squad.

Adnan Akmal, the wicketkeeper, also returned to the Test team after losing his place to Sarfraz Ahmed on the South Africa tour.

Anwar Ali, replacing Wahaz Riaz, is the only change in the one-day squad, which beat West Indies 3-1 last month.

Irfan, the tall left-arm pacer, will be part of the one-day and Twenty20 side but will not feature in Tests.

Pakistan is scheduled to play two Tests, three ODIs and two T20 matches during the tour. The Twenty20 Internationals will be played in Harare on August 23 and 24 before the three ODIs on August 27, 29 and 31 -- all in Harare.

The first Test starts in Harare on September 3 while the second Test will be played in Bulawayo on September 10. The series was originally slated for December 2012 but was postponed to accommodate Pakistan's tour of India.
