Wicketkeeper Adnan Akmal, brother of Kamran and Umar Akmal, has been added to the national team for the two-Test series against South Africa, along with allrounder Mohammad Hafeez.
Adnan comes in as a substitute for Zulqarnain Haider. Mohammad Hafeez has been retained from the limited-overs leg of the tour following the Pakistan Cricket Board’s selection to reject Danish Kaneria approval to join the team.
Adnan made his first-class debut in 2003-04. Presently, he plays for Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited in the domestic Quaid-e-Azam tournament.
