Surprise additions could be made to Pakistan’s World Cup 2023 Squad, according to reports. The ICC Cricket World Cup will take place in India in 2023, and Pakistani supporters are anxiously awaiting the squad announcement. However, the selection process has grown to be a challenging assignment for the team management at home.

At the moment, Pakistan is competing in the 2023 Asia Cup in Sri Lanka. Babar Azam’s team is having some difficulties, since some of its players are injured or performing unevenly.

The team’s crushing 228-run defeat against India served as a wake-up call for the Green Shirts. The Indian hitters thoroughly dismantled the pace trio of Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah, and Haris Rauf.

Pakistan’s decision to announce its starting XI the day before the match and play with just one specialist spinner drew criticism.

Injuries have also afflicted the Pakistani team, with Naseem Shah being forced to withdraw from the regional competition owing to a shoulder injury.

Salman Ali Agha is healing from a face injury, Imam-ul-Haq is dealing with back pain, Haris Rauf is battling a side strain, and Saud Shakeel has a fever.

For Pakistan’s head selector Inzamam-ul-Haq, narrowing down the field of competitors for the sport’s biggest event of the year has become nothing short of a task. The local selectors Tauseef Ahmed, Waseem Haider, Masood Anwar, Mohammad Salman, Mehmood Hamid, and Javed Hayat will meet with the former cricketer and captain for the selection process.

He will trust Team Director Mickey Arthur, Captain Babar Azam of Pakistan, and Head Coach Grant Bradburn. Surprise entries are reportedly likely to be on the team for the world championships. Which fresh faces will have a chance to shine on a worldwide scale is still to be determined.
