The national squad for the one-day international series versus the West Indies has been named.
The ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League covers all three ODIs in the series. The matches will be held at the Pindi Cricket Ground in Rawalpindi on June 8, 10, and 12.
3 openers, 3 middle batsmen, 2 wicketkeepers, 3 spinners, and five fast bowlers have been named to the roster.
Babar Azam (Captain), Shadab Khan (Vice-Captain), Hassan Ali, Abdullah Shafiq, Fakhr Zaman, Haris Rauf, Iftikhar Ahmed, Khushdal Shah, Imam-ul-Haq, Mohammad Haris (Wicket Keeper Better), Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Rizwan (Wicket Keeper Better), Shaheen, Muhammad Wasim Jr.
Because the two teams’ series would not be contested in a controlled environment, the national selectors have cut the scheduled 21-player roster versus Australia to 16 players. Haider Ali, Usman Qadir, Asif Ali, and Asif Afridi were all left out of the team for the match against the West Indies, while Saud Shakeel was ruled out due to sinusitis surgery.
Shadab Khan, the Pakistan white-ball cricket team’s vice-captain, has rejoined the team after recuperating from an injury.
The national squad will go to Rawalpindi for the series practice camp on June 1. Wicketkeeper-batsmen Muhammad Rizwan, Hassan Ali, Shadab Khan, and Haris Rauf will also come home on schedule from English county cricket.
Because all three ODIs against the West Indies are part of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League, chief selector Muhammad Waseem has stated that the best available players would be chosen. The majority of the players in the selected team have been kept to improve their performance in this type of cricket.
He stated that because this series wasn’t being played in a controlled environment, the players can be called in a short period of time if necessary. Asif Afridi and Usman Qadir were left out of the team for the match against the West Indies because Muhammad Nawaz and Shadab Khan were both perfectly fresh.
