Get the Latest Update on Pakistan Team Squads for ICC T20 World Cup 2022. Pakistan is one of the most successful teams as far as World Cup T20 is concerned. In the inaugural edition of the T20 World Cup in 2007, Pakistan reached the final under the captaincy of Shoaib Malik.
In that nail-biting match, Misbah and Co. fought till the end, but they were beaten by India when Sreesanth took that catch at short fine leg in the last ball of the match.
Australia will host the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 in October and November of 2022. The ICC T20 World Cup 2022 will feature a total of 16 teams. Each squad is divided into two sections. In the first round, matches from Group A and Group B will be contested. Pakistan along with other countries placed in Group B. Let’s take a look at the players who are going to be part of the T20 World Cup squad.
Top-order hitter Shan Masood has been named to the World Cup team for the first time, along with fast bowlers Mohammad Wasim Junior and Shaheen Shah Afridi, while Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Haris, and Shahnawaz Dahani have been picked as the three traveling reserves. Wasim Junior has been included after fully recuperating from the side strain he suffered during the ACC T20 Asia Cup, while Shaheen, who is rehabbing from a knee ailment in London and is scheduled to resume bowling early next month, will join the group in Brisbane on October 15.
“We have a team that can do well in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022,” said chief selector Muhammad Wasim. That is why we have retained almost the same set of players who were part of the T20I squad following the 2021 World Cup in the UAE.
“These players have performed admirably since November 2021, which is why we have won nine of our past thirteen T20Is.” We have invested in these cricketers, and it is only right that they get the opportunity to demonstrate their worth in the World Cup, for which they have been preparing and practicing diligently.
