Pakistan on Monday announced the squads for the upcoming tour of Australia that begins on November 3.

Pakistan’s head coach and chief selector Misbah-ul-Haq said that the side will be experimenting with youngsters, adding that they look to fight fire with fire for the assignments ahead.

“We know that Australia will present different and exciting challenges for us,” Misbah said in a press conference in Lahore on Monday. “There is a need to play a different type of cricket, the balance of the squads is reflective of us having options to play aggressive, attacking cricket.”
