Former Australian cricketer Dean Jones has urged the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to make use of batsman Asif Ali's talent in their side.

"I have known Asif for a long time," the former batsman tweeted. "I know what makes him tick. He can also be used as an opener... trust me.. he can do various roles.. not just as a banger at the death!"

Asif Ali played for Islamabad United under the leadership of Jones in the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

The batsman is known for his tenacity to hit sixes and score runs in the later stages of the innings.

Pakistan announced the 29-man squad for its tour of England. The side are to play a three-match Test series before heading into the three T20Is.
