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.
Asif Ali and Khushdil Shah are highly gifted and skilled.
Even though their numbers may not be impressive, it is difficult to deny the immense talent and prowess that Asif Ali as well as Khushdil Shah have. Wasim stated that we are sure they will deliver solid performances in order to resolve our middle-order issues as the most talented middle-order batsmen available.
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.
Azam was nominated before Sarfaraz.
Azam Khan was selected ahead of Sarfaraz Alam for its aggressive and attacking style as well his ability to take wickets. Mohammed Wasim Jr. was able to outscore Faheem Ahraf with its pace and power to score big runs. Other fast bowlers in the team include Haris Rauf and Mohammad Hasnain. Shaheen Shah Shah Afridi is also a member.

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. Qadir will struggle to make the team due to the absence of five fast, accurate bowlers and three skilled spinners. Mohammad Wasim Junior, an uncapped Shahnawaz, was tied with Faheem but was selected for his batting ability and pace,” said Wasim.
Pakistan is set to benefit from the warm weather during the World Cup
They are familiar with the UAE’s conditions and they have helped Pakistan reach the top of the ICC T20I rankings. With 21 wins, Pakistan won 36 of their games. There were 13 losses and 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.
