Pakistan have named an 18-man squad for the three-Test series against England next month.
Fast bowler Shaheen Afridi will miss the series after undergoing appendicitis surgery this weekend.
Fawad Alam, Yasir Shah and Hasan Ali all dropped out of the team after being part of the Sri Lanka tour in July earlier this year.
Leg spinner Abrar Ahmed and fast bowler Mohammad Ali received their first call-ups for the test.
Ahmed has won 43 wickets at an average of 21.95 in the domestic tournament and Ali has claimed 56 in the last two domestic seasons.
Uncapped pair Mohammad Wasim and Zahid Mahmood, who were in the squad for all three Tests against Australia in March, are the other two players to enter.
Afridi is also recovering from a knee injury he suffered during Pakistan defeat against England in the T20 World Cup final earlier this month.
The opening Test in Rawalpindi will be England’s first in Pakistan in 17 years and all three tests are part of the ICC World Test Championship.
