Ahmed in favour of Pakistan fielding Shadab and Shah together
Shaharyar M Khan said on Wednesday that the tour of West Indies is the last cricketing assignment of Pakistan test captain Misbah-ul-Haq.
Another leg-spinner Yasir Shah, who has taken 124 wickets in 23 test matches, will be Pakistan's first choice slow bowler.
"The Test team has been selected keeping in mind the conditions in the West Indies and the recent performances of players during the domestic and global season.The team is a fine blend of experience and youth, and we believe that team will do well", the Express Tribune quoted Inzamam as saying.
Shah, meanwhile, has been Pakistan's key bowler since making his Test debut in 2014. The tally includes 63 wickets in 10 test matches in the United Arab Emirates, which has been Pakistan's "home" venue after foreign teams refused to tour Pakistan because of security reasons since the 2009 terror attack on the Sri Lanka cricket team bus.
Clamours for Misbah's retirement started going rounds after Pakistan's dismal show in the three-match Test series in Australia past year and hosts lost it 2-0.
