CWC 2019: An XI featuring the most exciting debutants of the tournament
Middle-order: Babar Azam (Pakistan), and Shimron Hetmyer (West Indies),
Pakistan has given some great bowlers like Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Imran Khan to World cricket. In the process, it's batting had taken a backseat. However, one batsman who is highly regarded in the cricket circles at the moment is Babar Azam. Babar averages 51.68, which is unusual for a Pakistani batman, in the 64 ODIs that he has played.
He has been the backbone of the team's batting in the last couple of years and a lot will rely on his young shoulders.
Shimron Hetmyer is currently one of the most promising talents in World cricket. The U-19 World Cup winning skipper has played some stunning innings against some quality bowling attacks. The 22-year-old has shown big appetite for runs and has already struck 4 centuries in 24 matches. Hetmyer will surely be a player to watch out for in the World Cup.
