Karachi: Pakistan on Saturday included in-form Babar Azam for the first Test against the West Indies, Asia's first day-night match to be played with a pink ball.

The 21-year-old batsman notched up 360 runs during the West Indies one-day series that ended on Wednesday.

Azam, who has played 18 one-day internationals and four Twenty20s, has yet to play a Test.

Senior batsman Younis Khan will, however, miss the first of the three Tests as he continues recovering from dengue fever. The squad for the other two Tests will be announced later.
