Pakistan Cricket World Cup Team

Pakistan comes into this World Cup battered and bruised after not winning a single ODI game since January this year. Among those ten humiliating defeats is the white wash which Pakistan faced at the hands of England a couple of weeks ago. The only good thing for Pakistan World Cup Team is that came out of their failed venture against England was that they got to assess the English conditions right before they walked into the world cup. And as we know how difficult it is to assess English conditions. Pakistan announced their initial 15-man squad on April 18, 2019. The final squad was then announced on April 20, 2019 with Junaid Khan, Faheem Ashraf and Abid Ali replaced by Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Amir and Asif Ali. Pakistan's 2019 World Cup squad is comprised of four genuine batsmen: Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Asif Ali and Babar Azam, a single wicketkeeper batsman: Captain Sarfaraz Ahmed, four all-rounders: Shoaib Malik, Mohammed Hafeez, Haris Sohail, Shadab Khan, and five bowlers: Mohammed Amir, Hassan Ali, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Wahab Riaz and Mohammed Hasnain.


Below is the Pakistan Squad for World Cup 2019:

Analysis of the Batting Order

The Pakistani innings is expected to be opened by Imam-ul-Haq and Fakhar Zaman. At number three we will see the backbone of this entire batting line-up, Babar Azam. He would be followed by Mohammed Hafeez captain Sarfaraz. After the fall of the fourth wicket we can expect Asif Ali to come to the crease, followed by Shoaib Malik. At the tail we will see Wahab Riaz bat, followed by Hassan Ali, Shadaab Khan and Mohammed Amir.


Pakistan's Bowling options

While Mohammed Amir can be expected to feature in every game this world cup, all eyes would be on Wahab Riaz as he was selected solely for the reverse swing he generates in the end overs. Other bowling options for Pakistan are Shadab Khan, Mohammed Hafeez, Shoaib Malik and Hasan Ali. Haris Sohail and Shaheen Shah Afridi can also prove to be let Hall when included in the side.
