Ashton Agar has been picked as the third spinner in a full-strength Australia squad for the historic tour of Pakistan. Agar, who played the last of his four Tests back in September 2017, will partner Nathan Lyon and Mitchell Swepson in the 18-man squad as Australia focused on bolstering their spin options for the subcontinental assignment. Opener Marcus Harris, who lost his spot to Usman Khawaja for the Hobart Test, hangs on to his place in the squad, while experienced seamer Josh Hazlewood has overcome a side injury that ruled him out of the final four Tests against England.
Speaking ahead of the upcoming tour of Pakistan, Usman Khawaja says it will be "special" to play in the country he was born in. pic.twitter.com/FBnDmXsRTJ— cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) February 8, 2022
