Pakistan Cricket board chief Shaharyar Khan has not given up hope of a bilateral series against India at the end of this year, despite the political situation between the countries making that unlikely.
Pakistan's Bilal Asif was reported with a suspected illegal bowling action during the third and final One-Day International against Zimbabwe, in which he took a five-fer.
Pakistan have added veteran batsman Shoaib Malik to their Test squad to face England in the UAE this month, taking the total to 16 players, after a request was made by team manager Intikhab Alam.
Bilal Asif starred with bat and ball in only his second ODI as Pakistan beat Zimbabwe by seven wickets to clinch the three-match series two-one in Harare on Monday.
Pakistan veteran batsman Shoaib Malik was gracious in his assessment of the ODI his side lost against Zimbabwe on Saturday, but admitted he was disappointed by the way the match ended.
