Pakistan Makes Three Major Changes in World Cup 2019 Squad

Pakistan’s Chief Selector announced revised squad for World Cup 2019 with three changes to the initial team.

Fast bowler Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Amir, and Asif Ali have been added to the team in place of Junaid Khan, Faheem Ashraf, and Abid Ali, respectively. Leg-spinner Shadab Khan will also make a return to the squad after he was declared fit for the World Cup.

Inzamam supported the bowling changes saying that with the given unexpectedly true batting wickets in England, the team required someone like Wahab Riaz and Mohammad Amir who could reverse-swing the ball and bowl in the death overs.

He said dropping Abid Ali and Junaid Khan was a tough decision for him and the team management, but changes were made according to the team’s requirements.

      • Abdul wahab for god sake dont comment on this article.har article pe negative comment…idk why r u so brainless

  • Unfair with Abid Ali and Junaid Khan.
    The management always wanted Amir to be part of the World Cup squad. Even though he hasn’t performed since CT ’17 finally.
    On a positive note, good decision to replace with Faheem Ashraf with Wahab Riaz and to include Asif Ali.

  • Sarfaraz Ahmed, Fakhar Zaman, Haris Sohail, Babar Azam, Hasan Ali, Imad Wasim, Imam-ul-Haq, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Hasnain, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Amir, Asif Ali.
