Sohail replaces injured Babar

Lahore, June 4: Left-handed batting all-rounder Haris Sohail has replaced injured Babar Azam in the Pakistan squad for the upcoming two-match T20I series against Scotland, the Pakistan Cricket Board announced on Monday.

The squad is the same that beat the West Indies in April, with the exception of Babar, who fractured his left hand while batting in the opening Test at Lord’s, against England.

Haris has shown some promise this year, with consecutive fifties in the only two ODIs he played against New Zealand in January, although he couldn’t produce anything of note during the T20Is on that tour. IANS
