Finally, PCB and team managers have decided to pick Mohammad Amir and Asif Ali for the 2019 cricket world cup squad.
As Asif Ali is playing brilliantly in Pak vs Eng ODI series, so, Inzamam Ul Haq and head coach Micky Arthur selected him for the upcoming 2019 cricket world cup. On the other hand, they are also planning to include Mohammad Amir in place of Faheem Ashraf. Faheem is looking off color as he is not taking wickets and scoring runs. Therefore, PCB has decided to replace Faheem with Mohammad Amir and Asif Ali with Abid Ali. You can read the previous Pakistan squad from here.
Asif Ali to replace Abid Ali:
Asif Ali, a destructive batsman of Pakistan team, is playing a healthy role in the ongoing series. He smashed back to back fifties in consecutive 2 ODIs. In the second match of the series, he scored 51 runs in just 36 balls. He didn’t stop there and scored yet another half-century in the third ODI. But it was bad luck that Pakistani bowlers didn’t perform well in both ODIs, resulting in a loss. Therefore, PCB decided to give him a chance in the 2019 cricket world cup due to his recent destructive form. Surely, he is one of the blistering guns of Pakistan team who can hit big shots from nowhere. Now, PCB is looking to announce the changes after 4th ODI or 5th ODI.
