Pakistan World Cup Squad 2023: PCB Announce World Cup Squad Tomorrow Morning
- Faheem Ashraf, Asif Ali, Wahab Riaz, and Mohammad Haris being excluded from the World Cup squad!
The selection and challenging phase for the 15 players of the Pakistan cricket team participating in the ICC World Cup, commencing on October 5th in India, has begun.
Captain Babar Azam and Chief Selector Inzamam-ul-Haq have been compelled to make changes in the already selected squad following the failure in the Asia Cup. Both anticipate that the squad’s transformation will prove beneficial.
Meanwhile, in England, Cricket Director Mickey Arthur appears to be absent from this entire selection process.
Information suggests that after the recent team performance, the cases of additional wicketkeeper Mohammad Haris, spinner Asif Ali, fast bowler Mohammad Wahab Riaz, and all-rounder Faheem Ashraf have weakened significantly.
In the context of the latest developments, all-rounder Hasan Ali seems to be emerging as a strong candidate, considering his consistent form.
Deputy captain Shadab Khan and test opener Fakhar Zaman have reservations about their selection, but there is no possibility of them being left out of the squad.
Fifteen potential players for Pakistan in the World Cup could be Babar Azam (Captain), Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Abdullah Shafique, Salman Ali Agha, Iftikhar Ahmed, Saud Shakeel, Mohammad Rizwan (wicketkeeper), Abraar Ahmed, Mohammad Nawaz, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf, Hasan Ali, and Zaman Khan.
