Change can be seen in Pakistan team
The Pakistan team for the T20 series against England and the T20 World Cup 2022 is to be announced this week. Pakistan’s batting has been a big problem in the Asia Cup. Apart from this, not being 100 percent fit of many players of the team has also been a big reason for the defeat. To deal with all these things, the Pakistan cricket team management is looking for a little change in the team, which will be visible from top order batting to bowling.
Pak team has 2 options for Rizwan
Pakistan’s senior sports journalist Abdul Majid Bhatti has informed Geo Super that Mohammad Rizwan may be rested from the T20 series against England. In such a situation, there is a fierce competition between the two wicket-keeper batsmen Sarfaraz Ahmed and Mohammad Harris to take his place in the team.
Sarfaraz Ahmed or Mohammad Harris – who has the upper hand?
He told that Sarfaraz has performed amazingly while representing Sindh in Pakistan’s domestic T20 tournament National T20 Cup. Right-handed Sarfaraz is the 5th top scorer of the tournament with 193 runs with a strike rate of 141.91. On the other hand there is Mohammad Harris who has scored 100 runs in 6 matches of National T20 Cup. Harris is young and is considered to be the top contender to replace Rizwan.
Iftikhar, Khushdil, Asif Ali may drop
Pakistan’s senior sports journalist told that if Rizwan gets rest, then in that case Fakhar Zaman will get a chance to play in his original position i.e. opening. Fakhar’s game on the number 3 position has not been anything special anyway. He has scored only 96 runs in 6 matches.
Apart from this, Iftikar Ahmed and Khushdil Shah will be dropped from the Pakistan team. While taking a big decision on Asif Ali, the think tank of Pakistan can think about his replacement.
Shan Masood likely to return
Meanwhile, Shan Masood can get a place for the number 4 position in the team. His recent form is tremendous and he has shown runs from England’s county cricket to Pakistan’s National T20 Cup while playing at No. In such a situation, his selection in the Pakistan team seems certain.
