Islamabad - Pakistan is still waiting on the fitness of injured opening batsman Mohammad Hafeez for the Test series against England as selectors named 21 probables for next week's skill camp.

Hafeez missed the two-week fitness training camp at an army academy in Abbottabad and chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq says Hafeez's place will be decided once he gets results of a fresh scan of Hafeez's injured knee.

Sami Aslam, Shan Masood and Khurram Manzoor are the three opening batsmen named for the training camp.

Leg-spinner Yasir Shah and left-arm spinner Zulfiqar Babar are the two spinners vying for a place on the team as Inzamam conceded selectors couldn't find a specialist off spinner.

Pakistan is scheduled to play four Test matches, five one-day internationals and a Twenty20 against England with the first test at Lord's from July 14.
