Johannesburg, Oct.19 : Pakistan batsman Azhar Ali, who missed the first Test against England due to foot infection, is also likely to miss the second Test following the death of his mother-in-law.

Team manager Intikhab Alam said that Ali would return home and added that it was still unclear whether he would return to the squad before the upcoming Test.

According to Sport24, leg-spinner Yasir Shah, who was also ruled out of the first Test due to back spasm, has been included in the squad.

Earlier, the opening Test of the three-match series ended with a dramatic draw after England’s Adil Rashid claimed a five-wicket haul to dismiss Pakistan for a paltry 173 in the second innings.

The two sides will now lock horns in the second Test on October 22 in Dubai. (ANI)
