Nasser Hussain and Michael Atherton name their England World Cup squads

Jason Roy

Asif contributed two half-centuries in the one-day worldwide series against England which concluded on Sunday, the 27-year-old one of few who impressed in Pakistan's middle order during their side's 4-0 loss.

England will name their final cup 15 on Tuesday with newly-qualified fast bowler Jofra Archer likely to be summoned after missing the preliminary squad. The former all-rounder wrote on Twitter: "My condolences and prayers go to Asif Ali & his family on the passing of his daughter from cancer". Chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq said Amir had been included due to his experience.

The 33-year-old Riaz, a veteran of two World Cups in 2011 and 2015, played the last of his 79 ODIs against India in the Champions Trophy in the United Kingdom two years ago.

That England were nowhere near their best, even if some of their fielding was quite electric, and still won comprehensively says everything about the state of mind and body that they now find themselves ahead of the World Cup.

But whatever the intentions between PCB's decision to recall Wahab and include Amir in the World Cup squad, Junaid was not impressed. Veteran left-arm quicks Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz were also drafted into the squad despite not being named in the provisional squad.

A native of Macon, France , the 28-year-old World Cup victor joined Atleti in 2014 from Real Sociedad . He added: "I have to leave, I want to see new places and face new challenges, it's what I need now".

Highlights as England wrapped up a 4-0 series victory over Pakistan with a 54-run win in the fifth ODI at Headingley.

Reacting on Asif's selection, Inazamam said it was not easy to drop Abid Ali but Pakistan needed someone like Asif in the middle order.

Wahab, who turns 34 next month, last played a one-day global for his country in the opening match of the 2017 Champions Trophy against India going for 87 runs without a wicket and than limping off with an injury.

They were part of the just-concluded Tri-Nation ODI Series in Ireland.
