Uncapped Salt gets maiden call in T20I against Pakistan


Uncapped Phil Salt will replace Dawid Malan in England’s squad for a lone T20I against number one ranked T20I side Pakistan on May 5 (Sunday).

Malan suffered an injury during England’s only ODI against Ireland on Friday which the hosts clinched by four wickets.

The 22-year-old has scored 335 runs in domestic cricket and has the ability to hit the ball hard in the powerplay.

The young gun also made it to players’ pool from which England’s provisional got selected for the upcoming World Cup, slated to start from May 30 in England and Wales.
