Amir makes big promise after being included in Pakistan’s World Cup squad

Further rotations seem likely in the bowling attack also as Liam Plunkett, Chris Jordan and Chris Woakes could all come back into the side here as the competition for places among the bowlers hots up.

The original West Indies schedule was based in Bristol from May 23, with two official ICC Cricket World Cup warm-up matches on May 26 against South Africa and on May 28 versus New Zealand.

It was a brilliant piece of work from England spinner Adil Rashid on the field to run out Babar Azam during the fifth and final ODI against Pakistan at Headingly on Sunday. Amir's stock, however, rose despite not playing a single game against England while he recovered from his condition, as the rest of the bowling lineup took a severe beating in the 4-0 whitewash against England.

"The combination of both these elements, meant that we believed that right now, utilising the World Cup experience and knowledge of Wahab was the correct choice".

"Allhamdulilah, humbled and proud to be part of the Pakistan World Cup squad", he said on Twitter.

Real Madrid fans have their say on Hazard, Eriksen and Pogba rumours
Goals from Betis' Loren Moron and former Real star Jese saw Madrid fall to their twelfth defeat in the league this season. It appears that Madrid are now so keen to get rid of the player that they are resorting to some desperate measures.

"We are with Asif in this tough time".

"We thought that during the England series, we lacked experience in our bowling and that is why we have included Riaz in the squad", he said.

The legspinner then removed Shoaib Malik for four to a sharp left-handed caught and bowled as Pakistan lost 3-41 at a crucial stage to ensure no way back.

"Wahab has been training and playing club cricket, and the player of his calibre will not face much problem in adapting and adjusting to the gruelling demands of the World Cup". Sarfraz eventually departed for a well made 97 and despite Asif Ali, Imad Wasim, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi and Mohammad Hasnain all getting starts, Pakistan never really looked like getting close to the target of 352 and were eventually bundled out for 297 in 46.5 overs.
