Azam Khan earned his maiden call whilst Tabish Khan ruled out as Pakistan announced T20I, ODI, and Test squads for the tours of England and West Indies.

Azam proved himself in the National T20 Cup and first phase of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 6 while representing Quetta Gladiators. Whereas, Tabish’s exclusion came as a surprise as the lad was given just a chance in Test against Zimbabwe in April. It was his maiden Test at the age of 36 and he managed to claim a wicket.

Meanwhile, Imad Wasim has returned to the T20I squad, Haris Sohail has reclaimed his spot in the ODI squad whereas uncapped Saud Shakeel, Mohammad Abbas, and Naseem Shah have made it into the Test squad.
