Mohammad Amir will be unable to attend the test tour as he will be seeing the birth of his second child in August. Haris Sohail, who had a successful show in the last test series, will also be sitting out the tour citing familial reasons.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced the news today. The Pakistani team that is set to play three test matches and three T20Is against England from August through September, is yet to announce its 28-man roster. Meanwhile, England will be playing a three-match test series against West Indies through July before they go head to head with the Pakistani team.
