Pakistan add Malik

KARACHI: Pakistan have recalled all-rounder Shoaib Malik from the Test wilderness, adding him as the 16th member to their squad for the three-match series against England starting this month in the UAE. The former Pakistan captain, who last played a Test in August 2010, has been rewarded for his strong form in the limited-overs matches in Zimbabwe, the PCB said in a statement. “Following (team manager) Intikhab Alam’s request, I spoke with my fellow selectors and there was unanimity over retaining Malik, keeping in mind his current batting form and the off-spin bowling option that could be handy in the all-important forthcoming Test series against England,” chief selector Haroon Rashid said.
