Pakistan is likely to fly 25 to 27 players for the tour in order to logistical arrangements that obviously have become difficult to manage because of Coronavirus. Hence, the probability of the green shirts selecting 8 to 10 pacers for the trip is pretty bright. Mohd. Amir’s inclusion then seems almost certain.

So, what do you say? Should Pakistan select Sarfaraz Ahmed, Fawad Alam And Mohd. Amir for the all-important tour to England?
