Haris Rauf, Zahid Mehmood, Saud Shakeel and Mohammad Ali are making their debut today
Pakistan has announced their playing XI for the first Test of the all-important three-match series against England in Rawalpindi today.
Four Pakistan players will make their debuts against England, pacers Haris Rauf and Mohammad Ali, the leg-spinner Zahid Mehmood, and the batter Saud Shakeel are among the players making their Test debuts.
Pakistan has given Test caps to four players in a single game for the first time since the 2003's match in Karachi against Bangladesh.
Mohammad Hafeez, Umar Gul, Shabbir Ahmed, and Yasir Hameed made their Test debuts during the Bangladesh Test almost two decades ago.
Following the first game in Rawalpindi, the second Test will be played in Multan beginning on Friday, December 9, and the tour's final Test will be played in Karachi beginning on Saturday, December 17.
