New Delhi. Pakistan Cricket Board on Thursday reviewed the performance of its team in Asia Cup 2023. During this, many important issues were discussed, from the fitness of players to the World Cup squad. PCB said that it will announce its team for the World Cup 2023 today i.e. on September 22 through a press conference. According to a PCB press release, chief selector Inzamam Ul Haq was unable to attend the meeting due to a medical emergency, but met Zaka Ashraf on Thursday afternoon to share his inputs. Following the completion of the review, Inzamam has finalized the Pakistan squad for the ICC World Cup, which will be announced at a press conference to be held at the Far-End Building, Level 2 of the Gaddafi Stadium, at 11:15 am on Friday.
Before the announcement of Pakistan World Cup squad, some important information related to the team is coming out. If reports are to be believed, Hasan Ali can replace injured Naseem Shah in the World Cup team. Naseem Shah suffered a shoulder injury during the match against India in the Asia Cup 2023. Due to this injury, he was neither able to bowl his full quota of overs against India nor could he take part in the next match against Sri Lanka.
Apart from this, the good news about Haris Rauf, who was injured during the Asia Cup, is that he is fit and will be selected in the World Cup squad.
Abdullah Shafiq will be part of the 15-member team in place of Mohammad Haris. Zaman Khan will be kept in the list of reserve players along with Mohammad Haris.
There will be no place for Sarfaraz Ahmed, Mohammad Amir and Imad Wasim in Pakistan’s World Cup 2023 squad. These three players were part of the Pakistani team in the last World Cup.
