The Men in Green recently suffered a humiliating defeat to Sri Lanka in the 2022 Asia Cup final, underlining the team\’s shortcomings. Before the mega-event, it was anticipated that the Pakistan Squad would undergo a few changes, with some out-of-shape players being replaced with top performers on the home circuit.

Shaheen Afridi, Pakistan\’s express pacer, is also anticipated to return after suffering a knee injury more than a month ago, which will further strengthen an already outstanding fast bowling lineup.

Here is how we envision Pakistan Squad 15-man for the 2022 T20 World Cup:

Babar Azam, the team\’s all-format captain, will start at the top despite his recent struggles in the game\’s shortest version. Pakistan will be counting on the star hitter to do well in Australia because he has been one of the most reliable international cricket players in recent years.

Mohammad Rizwan (wk)

Mohammad Rizwan, the top T20I batter in the world, has had an incredible year of 20-over cricket. Although he has drawn some criticism for his subpar strike rate at the top of the order, he will undoubtedly start as the team\’s first batter.

 Shadab Khan (vc)

One of the most crucial members of the team is Shadab Khan, the vice-captain for Pakistan\’s white-ball team. He is one of the first names on the team sheet due to his all-around strength. Shadab is a valuable member of the batting unit due to his adaptable batting style.

Asif Ali

Due to his propensity to win matches, Pakistan\’s explosive lower-order hitter Asif Ali is constantly on the team. Asif may not have a high run total, but his rapid runs and constant sixes make him an essential part of the team.

Mohammad Nawaz

The fact that Pakistan has two all-rounders who can bat anywhere in the middle order is a blessing. Like Shadab, Mohammad Nawaz has been in excellent form lately with both the bat and the ball, and he ought to be among the first names on the list of players going to Australia.

Shaheen Afridi

The Men in Green\’s fast bowling lineup is now where things become interesting. Shaheen Afridi, the group\’s leader, is anticipated to complete his injury rehabilitation and board the flight to Australia. In Australia, the express pacer will be difficult to handle on bumpy courses.

Haris Rauf

In Shaheen\’s absence, his accomplice Haris Rauf has made a significant contribution. Rauf\’s spectacular performance in the recently finished 2022 Asia Cup will aim to keep up his excellent form in the major competition. Haris is one of the top T20 pacers in the world because of his ability to bowl with the new ball at the end of the game.

Naseem Shah

Naseem Shah, a talented young bowler, made Pakistan\’s T20I debut in the 2022 Asia Cup. With the new ball, Naseem is a devastating weapon thanks to his speed and swing, and watching him bowl alongside Shaheen in the opening spell will be a pleasure for spectators worldwide.

Shahnawaz Dahani

Before being forced to miss the Asia Cup owing to injury, Shahnawaz Dahani impressed. Given that he offers something different from the other three pacers mentioned above, Dahani should be the Pakistan Squad fourth pacer. Dahani is a genuine threat since he creates pace off the field, and his ball skids rather than going onto the bat.

Mohammad Wasim Jnr

Another pacer was needed for the team, and Mohammad Wasim Jr. was the front-runner. Muhammad Hasnain, too. Wasim Jr. has a little advantage over Hasnain, a poor fielder due to his lower-order hitting skills.

Usman Qadir

Our pick for the Pakistan Squad backup spinner is Usman Qadir. Comparing Qadir to the other available spinners in the domestic setup, Shadab Khan\’s replacement, Qadir, is a viable choice thanks to his remarkable variations. Even though Qadir still needs to work on his line and length, he is now the greatest choice. Additionally, he has experience playing cricket, which he can use to his advantage if given a chance.

The situation is about to get heated because the team is in a pickle due to middle-order issues. Pakistan will need to be very intelligent in its approach while making its selections, given that it needs to fill four batting positions. Here are our four batting unit selections.

Haider Ali

Due to his capacity for playing at a high strike rate, Haider Ali would be our first choice for the middle order. The gifted young batter has a variety of strokes, and Australian pure bonce pitches would also complement his strokeplay. Pakistan\’s batting lineup would significantly boost Haider\’s ability to quicken the pace.

Shan Masood

One of the cricketers in the world with the best form is Shan Masood. The left-hander has played flawlessly in all three game types, but the shorter versions have shown him to be extremely adept. He has improved his technique and is currently batting at position four in the National T20 Cup. Shan can play in any position, and the quick Australian pitches would benefit from his excellent strokeplay.

Khushdil Shah

Khushdil Shah felt let down by the just-completed 2022 Asia Cup. Except one game against Hong Kong, he was not among the runs and appeared to lack confidence, which led to dismal performances throughout the tournament. Due to his ability to hit for power and his potential to contribute, should the need arise, we would still keep him on the Pakistan Squad.

Azam Khan

The skilled batter and wicketkeeper Azam Khan would be our final selection for this team. Azam is a terrific asset in T20 cricket because of his innate ability to hit big. Although there are concerns about his fitness, his advantages exceed his disadvantages.

Azam Khan is recognized as one of the best batters in the world against spin, and his capacity to destroy pacers is amazing. He would be our choice to play with Rizwan as a backup, and he could even take over the gloves from Rizwan if necessary.

Honorable Mentions

Mohammad Hasnain, Iftikhar Ahmed, Sharjeel Khan, and Shoaib Malik were all considered for various positions but could not be included due to the team\’s makeup. They will undoubtedly be on the radar of the selectors, and it will be intriguing to see how they compare in the final selection.
