While Sarfaraz Ahmed and Imad Wasim will likely not be able to join the squad despite Hafeez’s recommendation, Mohammad Haris and Zaman Khan are reportedly to be named as reserves for the mega event. Also, Hassan Ali is likely to replace Naseem Shah, after the latter sustained a severe injury to his shoulder possibly getting ruled out of the World Cup.
As per the reports, major changes are not expected in Pakistan’s squad for the ODI World Cup 2023, however, the fans are eagerly awaiting the official announcement.
