There is a lot of debate according to Pakistan captaincy in the past few weeks. PCB did the experiment with Shoaib Malik in Pakistan Vs Australia series and the result knows everybody very well. Pakistan has faced the whitewash lost in that series. So, the chief selector has decided that Sarfaraz Ahmed will lead the team, while Shoaib Malik will be his deputy.

Mohammad Aamir Has No Place In Pakistan's Squad For CWC 2019

The basic reason to drop Mohammad Aamir from the Cricket World Cup 2019 Squad is his bad performance. Aamir has still chance to prove himself in upcoming England series because he is picked for that series. According to his performance, he has played throughout in the ODI since the Champions Trophy final against India in 2017. His performance has generally been poor while he has played 14 matches picking up only five wickets at an average of 92.6.

Hafeez sustained a finger injury which forced him out of the Pakistan Super League, but Inzamam said the experienced batsman 'was always in the plans'.

"Although his inclusion in the World Cup squad is subject to fitness, yesterday we got a boost when he started playing with a tennis ball with his doctor confirming he will be available for selection for the series against England. Our World Cup opener is on 31 May against the Windies, which is still six weeks away, and we are confident he will be fully fit and ready to display his vast international experience."

A Surprising Addition In The Opener Slot

Abid Ali, who scored a century on debut against Australia recently, has been picked as the third opener, backing up Fakhar Zaman and Imam-Ul-Haq. Left-arm pacer Usman Shinwari missed out, while 19-year-old Mohammad Hasnain was "selected due to his sheer pace and speed". Hasnain has played only three One Day Internationals and will join the pace attack that has Hasan Ali, Faheem Ashraf, Shaheen Shah Afridi, and Junaid Khan.

Overall, 11 of the 15 players featured in the Champions Trophy in England in 2017.

“This is more or less the side we have been playing since the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. I have absolute trust that Pakistan's squad has grown further in experience and stature since 2017. Supported by the flare, skill, talent, and killing-instinct, this side has the capability and potential to rise to the occasion and produce strong performances," said Inzamam.

A Fine Bowling Attack In Pakistan's Squad

The world knows Pakistan cricket by their pacer skills. According to history, Pakistan's bowling attack can change the game in just one over by any chance. The inclusion of Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, Faheem Ashraf, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Junaid Khan, and Mohammad Hasnain will always threaten for the opponents. Pakistan has probably the most attacking and lethal bowling unit, which has variation and variety to take wickets and keep the opponents under pressure.

Experience Does Matter For ICC Cricket World Cup 2019

Shoaib Malik and Hafeez have played in World Cups before, which makes them experienced and qualified to provide the required stability to the middle-order. The exuberance of Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq and Babar Azam make them the most exciting, talented and entertaining top-three in the world. Sarfaraz is a proven performer with the bat who has played a number of crucial knocks for Pakistan and his presence further strengthens the middle-order.

Inzamam has added Asif Ali as an additional player due to his best power-hitting. Everyone knows the Pakistani players play with the slow run rate and they desperately need a power hitter to overcome this issue. Asif will provide cover to the World Cup squad and can be drafted into the side by May, 23 if required," said chief selector Inzamam ul Haq.
