ICC Cricket World Cup 2019
Pacer Mohammad Amir, the hero of Pakistan’s previous triumph in an ICC tournament, will not be competing at the World Cup in England as it stands. He was not one of the 15 members appointed by the PAC on Thursday for the event. Usman Shinwari also missed the match. Another important name missing from the list was Asif Ali, the power hitter.
Amir will, however, go to England for the previous ODI series against England. His non-participation in the World Cup should not surprise, except by his numbers. Since that superb performance in the Champions Trophy final – and by the way, also in England – he has captured five ODI wickets in 101 bowling sidings at an average of 92.60 per wicket, the worst of all bowlers to have sent over 600 bullets in this period.
The deadline for team announcements is April 23, but teams may make changes until May 23 without seeking approval from the CIC Technical Event Committee. ESPNcricinfo understands that the date of 23 April has been set for the ICC to provide logistics, such as hotel and flight bookings. Check ICC Cricket World Cup Today Toss Prediction
The PCB’s chief selector, Inzamam-ul-Haq, announced his team at a press conference at Gaddafi stadium. He said his team was chosen based on conditions and included reliable hitters, trustworthy bowlers, and dynamic players.
“In England and Wales, conditions play a crucial role, so we have selected a three-dimensional camp, which offers the captain a wide range of options, no matter what game plan he chooses. On matchday, we have experienced the batters, who are supported by bowlers with a lot of variety and variation to exploit any kind of conditions.
“That’s pretty much what we’ve been playing since the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy. I’m absolutely convinced that this group has gained more experience and stature since 2017. Backed by its flair, skills, talent, and instinct to the killer, The team has the capacity and the potential to face the challenges and produce good performances. While choosing the team, we tried to cover all the bases by assessing our strengths, as well as by analyzing each opponent, the match venues and the format of events. “
Before the World Cup, Pakistan travels to England for a one-off T20 and five ODIs. Amir aside, the other member of the World Cup team for the English series is Asif Ali. Asif scored 200 points in the eight rounds of ODI he played in Pakistan in the weakest group, with a record 50 unmarked points and, most importantly, a strike rate of 130.71. It could be said to be one of the few striking options in power for Pakistan at the moment, but there remains the question of balance for the XI if it had to be included for the FIFA World Cup. world.
The experienced Hafeez was selected in the team subject to fitness; He is still recovering from the surgery he suffered on his right thumb after being injured during his participation in the Pakistan Super League in mid-February.
