According to the PCB, leg spinner, Usman Qadir has been injured. And he has been transferred to the traveling reserves. While Pakistani batsman Fakhar Zaman has been upgraded to the team’s 15-player Twenty20 World Cup roster. The seasoned batsman Zaman was initially included in the traveling reserves for the World Cup. Where Pakistan opens its campaign on October 23 in Melbourne against arch-rival India.
The PCB said that the substitution was necessary. Because Usman Qadir has not yet fully recovered from the hairline fracture he received in his right thumb during their T20 encounter against England in Karachi last month. Before October 22, he won’t be eligible for selection.
Along with Shaheen Shah Afridi, Zaman will travel to Brisbane from London on Saturday. The team management will evaluate Zaman’s fitness during the warm-up games against England and Afghanistan.
The 32-year-old’s participation in the group gives the club another middle-order option.
Babar Azam (captain), Shadab Khan, Asif Ali, Fakhar Zaman, Haider Ali, Haris Rauf, Iftikhar Ahmed, Khushdil Shah, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Rizwan, Mohammad Wasim Jr., Naseem Shah, Shaheen Shah Afridi, and Shan Masood are the members of the Pakistani team.
