From 25 September to 14 October, Pakistan will play seven T20Is at home in Lahore and Rawalpindi, while it will face India in its ICC Men’s T20 World Cup opener on 24 October in Dubai. The Indian middle-order has been bolstered by Asif Ali and Khushdil Shah, two fast bowlers from home.

Pakistan’s Asif played his 29th and last T20I against Zimbabwe earlier this month and averaged 16.38 with a strike rate of 123.74, for an overall strike rate of 147 in T20 cricket. A T20I against South Africa was Khushdil Shah’s ninth and last one this year in Lahore. As of this writing, he is averaging more than 21 runs per game and has a strike rate of 109.24 in the T20s, while he has a strike rate of 134 in 50-overs.

ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, we tried to cover all our bases by selecting a squad designed to accommodate the modern-day brand of T20 cricket. “We have put our trust in the abilities, skills, and experience of our players to perform in high-pressure global tournaments in conditions we are familiar with, while also considering the teams we will encounter in the Group-2 matches,” said Wasim.

Khushdil Shah and Asif Ali are both highly talented and highly skilled

It is hard to doubt the tremendous talent and prowess of Asif Ali and Khushdil Shah, even if their numbers are not impressive. We are confident they will provide us with solid performances to solve our middle-order difficulties as the best players in the available pool of middle-order batters, Wasim added.

We also have three great spinners in the shape of Imad Wasim, Mohammad Nawaz, and Shadab Khan, who are equally good with the bat as they are excellent on the field,” the captain continued.

Nominated ahead of Sarfaraz is Azam.

The selectors chose Azam Khan ahead of Sarfaraz Ahmed for his aggressive, attacking style and ability to keep wickets. Its pace and ability to hit big shots have allowed Mohammed Wasim Jr. to surpass Faheem Ashraf. In addition to Wasim, Haris Rauf, Hasan Ali, Mohammad Hasnain, and Shaheen Shah Afridi are other fast bowlers on the squad.

The unlucky candidates Fakhar Zaman, Shahnawaz Dahani, and Usman Qadir didn’t cut. Maqsood’s ability to bat anywhere in the top-order is an advantage over Fakhar. At the same time, the presence of three experienced spinners, who are also good batters, and five accurate, fast bowlers make it challenging for Qadir to get into the side. Mohammad Wasim Junior, an uncapped Shahnawaz, was tied with Faheem but was selected for his batting ability and pace,” said Wasim.

In the World Cup, Pakistan will benefit from the weather

Most of these players know UAE conditions better than anyone else as they helped Pakistan top the ICC T20I rankings with 21 wins out of 36 games (13 losses, two no-results). “With seven T20Is at home leading up to the event, they will have played 24 T20Is in 2021, the most of any participating country,” Wasim said.

“We’ll have one last chance to fine-tune our preparations against New Zealand and England at home. As such, we hope to win the maximum number of matches so the confidence and winning momentum can follow us to Dubai.”

Combined with the talent and well-planning of our preparations for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021, I am confident that we will perform well. Thankfully, all the players need to do now is not get overawed by the occasion, continue to believe in themselves, and try to give their all every time they step into the field,” he said.
