Expected Changes in Pakistani Squad for ICC Cricket World Cup 2023

Expected changes in Pakistani Squad for ICC Cricket World Cup 2023. In Pakistan’s 15-player roster for the forthcoming ICC World Cup 2023, which will take place in India next month, mystery spinner Abrar Ahmed is expected to be included.

Shadab’s dismal ODI performance has been a source of worry for Pakistan, thus Abrar has entered the fray. Shaheen Afridi might replace Shadab as vice captain, even though Shadab will undoubtedly be selected for the World Cup team.

The leadership of the team and the selection committee have agreed to make few changes and essentially use the roster from the just finished Asia Cup. 

Inzamam-ul-Haq, the chief selector, and captain Babar have an important meeting with Zaka Ashraf, the head of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) management committee, coming up shortly. The final selection on the team’s makeup will be subject to Ashraf’s approval.

On Wednesday or Soday next week, the squad’s official announcement is likely to take place. The fitness level of a number of players who have been recovering from injuries was also taken into consideration by the selection committee.

Hassan Ali is reportedly planning to rejoin the 15-person squad. Because it is anticipated that Naseem Shah will miss the entire World Cup due to a shoulder injury, Hassan Ali and Zaman Khan have been considered as potential replacements for the pacer.

Haris Rauf, who strained his side during the Asia Cup, is anticipated to recover in time for the competition. Imam-ul-Haq, who suffered back spasms before the Super 4 match, and Agha Salman, who had bruising under his eye, are both on the road to recovery and should be totally fit well before the World Cup starts.

From October 5 to November 19, 10 teams will compete for the coveted World Cup title at 10 different locations, with the tournament’s opening game and championship match taking place at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium.
