Manzoor gets New Zealand ticket

 Pakistani opener Khurram Manzoor has been rewarded for his outstanding performance against West Indies A as chief selector Mohsin Khan selected him for the upcoming tour of national team to the New Zealand.
Khurram Manzoor is currently in West Indies with Pakistan A team where he scored back to back centuries in two un-official test matches against West Indies A.
Khurram Manzoor is included into Pakistan test team as the 15th member. Pakistan team will play three T20s, two test matches and six one day internationals against New Zealand.
Earlier, PCB chief selector Mohsin Khan had announced 14-man squad for the New Zealand tour and people were speculating that either Shoaib Malik or Mohammad Yousuf will be included later in the squad but selection of Khurram Manzoor has put an end to all the rumours
Misbah ul Haq will lead Pakistan in test matches while Shahid Afridi in T20 series. The PCB hasn’t announced the ODI squad and is yet to make its call on who will lead Pakistan in the ODIs against Kiwis.
Sources have disclosed to The Sports Encounter that Misbah is likely to take captaincy role in ODIs as well after his inspirational performance in the two-match test series against South Africa in UAE last month.
