Australia Test Squad for Pakistan Tour 2022 pacer – Pat Cummins will be leading the side on the historic tour. Whereas, Australia’s Ashes hero – Usman Khawaja also included in the contingent for the Test series.
Taking to Twitter, CA also shared the Test-bound squad for the historic tour.
The report stated that Jhye Richardson is the only player of note to miss the trip as Australia Test Squad for Pakistan Tour 2022 manages the body of the 25-year-old fast bowler, who has struggled with injuries over his career.
It added that there were no surprises among the other bowlers picked, with Ashes hero Scott Boland named alongside the big three quicks in Cummins, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood, who returns from injury, while Michael Neser is also in.
Agar is one of three spin options along with Nathan Lyon and Swepson, with the trio earmarked for major roles over the next 18 months, with tours of Sri Lanka and India (and potentially Bangladesh, given a tour there was ‘postponed’ in 2020 and is still to be rescheduled) on the horizon.
According to the website, the extended size of the squad reflects the difficulty of calling players up at short notice for an overseas tour should there be a last-minute injury, with Australia Test Squad for Pakistan Tour 2022 expected to be in some form of bio-secure bubble for the tour.
“This squad covers all scenarios, including the conditions given that it has been such a long time since Australia was last in Pakistan,” selection chief George Bailey said.
“With several subcontinent tours and a one-day World Cup in India on the near horizon, this is a great first test challenge for the group after the successful home Ashes series.
“It’s also a very historic tour given the length of time since an Australian side last toured Pakistan
