Pakistan’s highest run-scorer in Tests Younus Khan has been inducted in the ODI squad for the four-match series against England in the UAE.

The team will be led by right-hand batsman Azhar Ali, while wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfraz Ahmed will be the vice-captain.

Meanwhile, left-arm spinner Zafar Gohar was also included in the 50-over team.

Pakistan team chief selector Haroon Rasheed defended Younus’ selection on the basis of his recent performances.

“Keeping in view his current form, Younus has been included in the squad to land stability to the middle-order batting,” said Haroon.

“Now it is up to Younus to prove that he could meet the demands of the modern-day One-Day cricket and play according to the team management’s game plan.

“Zafar has been included in place of injured Imad Wasim, who is expected to be fit before the T20I series.”
