Pakistan Squad Announced for World Cup 2019

National chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq has announced Pakistan cricket team’s squad for Cricket World Cup 2019. Just like England, Pakistan has announced a provisionary squad of 15 which can be changed depending on the performances in England.

Sarfaraz Ahmed will lead the team, while Shoaib Malik will be his deputy. The announcement came late in the day on Thursday.

The selection committee has stuck to the core of players and there has been no surprise inclusion for the cricket’s greatest carnival.

Here’s the squad of provisional 15:

Fakhar Zaman, Imam ul Haq, Abid Ali, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Haris Sohail, Sarfaraz Ahmed (c), Imad Wasim, Faheem Ashraf, Shadab Khan, Junaid Khan, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Hasnain.

The air around Mohammad Amir’s form has finally cleared as he will be taking the flight to England. However, he will not be a part of the preliminary squad.

His and Asif Ali’s inclusion will depend upon their performance in the series against England. Mickey Arthur had earlier called him a big match player and it looks like the Head Coach’s confidence in Amir is still very high.

Imad Wasim has also made it to the squad despite failing to appear for the fitness test.

The squad announcement comes at a time when Pakistan Cricket Board is in complete disarray as the Board of Governors has resorted to taking PCB to court after challenging MD Wasim Khan’s appointment in a meeting in Quetta.

Note that Pakistan cricket team is scheduled to leave for England on April 23 where they will play a one-off T20 followed by a five-match ODI series ahead of World Cup 2019.

  • Hasnain is the new one he need more experience and I think it’s too early if he play wc despite wahab Riaz is the better choice for wc

    • Imran Khan change le kar agaya cricket mein hahaah so called “world biggest leader” Shame on PTI and shame on Imran Khan. Inzi should be sacked immediately as Chief Selector and should be immediately replace by Rashid Latif.

  • Amir & Asif (Replace By Hasnain & Imam) Should be A Part of WC19 (Without Them) You Cannot Win Match

  • Why husnain? (no international experience)

    Why not one of these?

    why not Amir ? (big match player, experience)
    why not Usman? (average <20,economy <5)
    why not Wahab? (pace , x-factor,experience,Worldcup hero)

    • Selector is dumb no doubt but does Shaheen has required experience if we are pointing at hasnain? We r one unique team who loves to introduce debutants in World Cup games , usman is dumb, he is a hero in one match and in other he is a complete disaster, Washburn has a track record which clearly points out the record of giving most runs in 10 overs 2 times consecutively. He left out of the team because of no role suited to him, he doesn’t bowl new ball nor he seems to be reverse swinging the old ball, what else he is gonna do with the pace? Bowling short stuff may reward him in the domestic but this international cricket baby, he is just too lazy to impress anyone..

      • Usman is really inconsistent in T20is but he performed really consistently in ODIs. Look at his stats.

  • Pakistan missed a trick with not playing Mohammad Abbas he knows British conditions and pitches better than rest and he is a medium pacer.

  • My squad for world cup would be

    Final (11)
    Abid Ali
    Babar Azam (VC)
    Fawad Alam (C)
    Haris Sohail
    Mohammad Rizwan (WK)
    Imad Wasim
    Faheem Ashraf
    Usman Shinwari
    Mohammad Abbas
    Junaid Khan
    Shaheen Afridi

    Backup (4)
    Mohammad Amir
    Shadab Khan
    Mir Hamza
    Shan Masood

    Obviously there can be changes made even in this list and by no means my selection is 100% perfect.

      • Sarfaraz Ahmed doesn’t have leadership skill and his batting is also very weak. Rizwan is thousand times better than him.

        • I am talking about Captaincy Not Batting Bowling :
          Sarfu have talent to use Bating & Bowling as per plan :

          Sarfu is best for Captaincy :
          I Accept for his fault in Batting.
