The final Pakistan world cup squad 2019 is announced on Monday (today).
In final Pakistan world cup squad, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Amir, and Asif Ali replaced Junaid Khan, Faheem Ashraf, and Abid Ali. Shahdab Khan who was unable to play in the Pak Vs Eng ODI series due to illness is retained in the squad. Pakistan Cricket Board or PCB chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq announced the squad. However, May 23 is the final date by ICC to make changes in the Cricket World Cup 2019 Squad.
Fast bowler Mohammad Amir included for the Eng Vs Pak ODI series had been initially dropped from the World Cup squad. While he did not play in the ODI series against England, Amir has performed well in England in the past.
The Pakistani bowling also failed to impress in the whitewash by England, leading to calls to make changes prior to the World Cup.
Sarfaraz Ahmed, captain Pakistan cricket team said “We are not bowling and fielding up to the mark but the way we are batting I am very confident for the World Cup…Our openers and middle order are scoring runs and we have to sort out our fielding and bowling,”.
