Tall Pakistani quick bowler set to make Test debut at Newlands
Pakistan look set to hand 7ft fast-bowler Mohammad Irfan his Test bow in the second Test against South Africa.
Fellow seamer Rahat Ali also appears likely to drop out with spinner Abdur Rehman being preferred. South Africa look set to be unchanged for the Test which starts tomorrow.
The tourists who were routed by 211 runs in the opening Test, are hoping to bounce back at Newlands. Fellow left-arm bowler Junaid Khan is likely to be ruled out injured which will allow the giant Irfan to debut.
The Proteas have got a job on their hands to deal with the gangly bowler – see him shake up India’s Yuvraj Singh below.
