Earlier this week, the national selection committee headed by Inzamam-ul-Haq had called Umar Amin, Haris Sohail and Asif Zakir for the fitness test. The fitness test held today at National Cricket Academy to replace Umar Akmal who had earlier failed the fitness test in the pre-camp for  ICC Champions Trophy held at Edgbaston Cricket Stadium, Birmingham, England. 

The NCA trainer conducted the test of all three players and based on the reports submitted by the trainer and upon Pakistan’s team management request Haris Sohail has been selected for the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 which is starting from the 1st June 2017 in England and Wales.

After the announcement, my colleague – Emmad Hameed and I got a chance to speak to Haris Sohail. And here is what the young batting all-rounder had to say about the National team call.

The second front runner for the spot was Umar Amin who was a strong contender for the place in the national side because of his recent form and performance in the fitness test. However, selection committee decided in the favour of young man from Sialkot.
