    Pakistan recall Ijaz, Mushtaq for 3rd test

    Pakistan cricket selectors recalled batsmen Ijaz Ahmad and leg spinner Mushtaq Ahmad for the third and final cricket test starting in Karachi on Sunday.

    Wasim Akram and Moin Khan, who missed the second test which Pakistan lost by 57 runs, were also named in the 16-man squad after recovering from groin and knee injuries respectively.

    But there was no place for former captain Aamir Sohail who has been dropped following a poor run of scores in the first two tests.

    Sohail, the former captain, scored 0, 24, 22, 0 in the four innings. Also left out was wicketkeeper Atiq-uz-Zaman who made his debut in the second test.

    Yawar Saeed, director of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), said Saqlain Mushtaq was not considered because he is leaving for England on Saturday for medical checks.

    Ijaz Ahmad was overlooked for the home series after the tour of Australia where Pakistan lost three tests and six out of 10 one-day internationals.

    Mushtaq Ahmad's last test for Pakistan was in the first test against Australia at Brisbane three months ago.


    Saeed Anwar (captain), Imran Nazir, Ijaz Ahmad, Yousuf Youhana, Inzamam-ul-Haq, Younis Khan, Wasim Akram, Shahid Afridi Arshad Khan, Shoaib Akhtar, Waqar Younis, Wajahatullah Wasti, Irfan Fazil, Mohammad Akram, Mushtaq Ahmad and Moin Khan.

    Oh No, not Ijaz again.
