Pakistan pick five uncapped players for UK tour

Imam, Inzamam's nephew, in line for Test debut

Imam, Inzamam's nephew, in line for Test debut

Imam-ul-Haq, the nephew of former Pakistan skipper and current chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq, is in line for a Test debut. Usman Salahuddin, the middle-order batsman who's been picked for the team, has no experience of playing in the Tests either.

What people are more concerned about is the fact that Fawad Alam boasts a rather sound career-record in comparison to that of Imam-ul-Haq's.

On the contrary, Inzamam-ul-Haq defending the decision that has been in talks these past few days, said that there are other players who perform better than Fawad.

Brown broke into the victim's apartment, dragged her out by her hair and struck her multiple times, investigators say. A woman blew every last cent of her father's inheritance money within just nine months, including $150,000 on drugs.

Fakhar Zaman, Faheem Ashraf, Imam Ul Haq, Usman Salahuddin and Saad Ali are the five players who got their debut call from the national selectors.

The left-handed Alam has consistently been one of the highest run-scorers in Pakistan's domestic cricket and now has 10,742 first-class runs under his belt.

Pakistan Super League's (PSL) top performer Wahab Riaz has been excluded from the national squad, while the South Asian team will also miss the services of prolific leg-spinner Yasir Shah owing to a hip injury. "We have tried to strengthen our batting and also considered giving a chance to youngsters [on the tour] as the next World Cup is in England", the Dawn quoted Inzamam, as saying.

Teachers Skip School, March To Call For More Funding
That wave has notably seen teachers in West Virginia get a 5% pay raise last month after a nine-day strike. She also implored teachers to focus on unseating lawmakers who voted against raising funding for education.

All-rounder Faheem Ashraf is the other rookie named in a 16-man party that will be captained by wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfraz Ahmed.

Mohammad Amir will lead a relatively inexperienced pace attack, which includes Hasan Ali, Mohammad Abbas and Rahat Ali. "He played a big part in all the games we won".

Ireland will play their first-ever Test against Pakistan from May 11-15 in Dublin.

Gas prices continue to climb in Hampton Roads
Oil prices edged higher last week following new concerns about tension in the Middle East, with military strikes against Syria. Despite the increase, SC still ranks among the least expensive states for gas prices in the country.
