Irfan, 34, has not played for Pakistan since September a year ago, when he grabbed issues in both legs five overs into an ODI against England in Headingley. He took a shot at his wellness from that point, however was not picked for the home arrangement against West Indies in the UAE or the away voyage through New Zealand.
Having knocked down some pins more than 150 overs in the Quaid-e-Azam trophy, Pakistan’s chief five star competition, and helping his side Water and Power Development Authority to the title, Irfan won the endorsement of the selectors to play the five ODIs against Australia set to start in Brisbane on Friday. Chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq said the 14 players were picked “remembering the conditions in Australia” where his capacity to produce additional skip may have made him a benefit.
Pakistan have not named a substitution yet, however they have four staying quick bowlers in the squad in Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz – both of whom locked under overwhelming workloads in the 3-0 Test whitewash – Rahat Ali and Hasan Ali.
