Shaheen Afridi, one of the best fast bowlers in the world, returned to the team when the head of selectors for the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Muhammad Wasim, revealed the squad’s 15-member roster for the T20 World Cup on Thursday. The left-arm pacer missed the Asia Cup 2022 because of a knee ailment, and it was unclear whether he would participate in the prestigious international event. In addition, a well-known player named Shoaib Malik who was supposed to return to the Pakistani squad after the performance of the middle-patchy order is still absent. The same side will compete against New Zealand in a T20I series before the World Cup.

After getting significant support, Shan Masood re-joined the group. Fakhar Zaman, a member of the Asia Cup squad, has been chosen as one of the three reserves, along with Mohammad Haris and Shahnawaz Dahan.

Mohammad Wasim Jr. has recovered from the side injury he received during the Asia Cup, while Shaheen Afridi is expected to begin bowling again next month. A video announcing the squad for the international tournament was released by the PCB.

During a press conference to unveil the 15-person roster, Wasim said, “Our squad is strong enough to compete well in the T20 World Cup. After the 2021 World Cup in the UAE, we essentially kept the same set of players on the T20I squad, demonstrating our faith in them.” We have won nine of our last 13 T20 Internationals as a consequence of these players’ success since November 2021. Since we invested in these cricket players, it is only fair that they are allowed to demonstrate their talent in the World Cup, an event for which they have been preparing diligently.
