John Inverarity, Australia’s chairman of selectors, indicated on Monday that Pakistan-born leg-spinner Fawad Ahmed could yet be called into the Ashes squad. “It is likely that his passport will be through in time for him to be considered for the squad,” Inverarity told BBC Radio’s Test Match Special on Monday. “Then he will be considered for selection. He is a very interesting story. He came and joined an ethnic community there, played some cricket at a southern district level, was noticed as a good leg-spinner, then he went down to state practice and its gone from there,” he added.AFP/PHOTO: AFP
