Although the announcement of the Pakistan Cricket Team for the World Cup cricket will be after the fitness test on April 14. However, on the basis of social media and TV channels, series of World Cup squad starts by former Test cricketers and ordinary people.
The Pakistan Cricket Board’s selection committee and head coach used the few players to rest in series with Australia. They try few new players to the recent one day series played between Australia and pakistan in UAE.
After criticize by cricket experts and analyzer the coach Mickey Orthur still sure that the decision to rest six players was absolutely right. They are happy because they discover new fast bowlers, Mohammad Hasanin in this series as well as a new batsman Abid.
The results of this experiment series increase the unusual pressure on captain Sarfraz Ahmed. Now he have to start everything new against England series and raise a moral of scattered team.
The question and most important thing, that players who were restored in Australia series would be considered for the World Cup or not? These players include captain Sarfraz Ahmed, Hassan Ali, Shahin Shah Afridi, Shadab Khan, Babar Azam and Fakher Zman.
Apparently all the rested players seems to play ICC world cup 2019. But Shadab Khan and Shahin Shah Afridi not hundred percent fit in PSL 2019 league. Now how will they fit before WC 2019 but also in the One-day series against England.
Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Abbas, Yasser Shah and Fahim Ashraf are players who can not be called auto-metric as far as players are in the ODI series against Australia. Fahim Ashraf call back to home from the squad in USE series with Australia.
After the performance of Mohammad Abbas in Test cricket, some people thought that they should be tried in limited overs. He found only three matches from Multan Sultan in PSL. Starting one-day career against Australia, he got the opportunity to play in three matches, but he could get only 1 wicket only.
There is no doubt that the Yasir Shah is match winning player and great test bowler. But in one-day format, he has never been successful except for the 6 wickets before Zimbabwe four years ago. After playing five matches against Australia, Yasir Shah only get 4 wickets and with a heavy average of 70 runs. If the World Cup is going to think about their potential, it can prove to be an expensive deal.
The Umer Akmal play few good innings in PSL but not impressed in aus series. Mickey Arthur also not favor to play Akmal because its fitness and immaturity. The way he is giveaway his wicket in the series against Australia the coach and selector wa very disappointed. It is possible Umer will not part of Pakistan playing eleven for World Cup 2019. Umer Akmal also violate the PCB discipline and the experts says umer has killed himself.
The player is Mohammad Asif and Shoaib Malik, the most out-of-the-choice of two players in the ICC World Cup. Shoaib Malik was named captain in the series against Australia, but after three matches he got unfit. In the three matches, he played both the question marks on both his leadership and performance. Shoaib Malik has succeeded in making only 3 half centuries in the last 20 one-day innings.
Mohammad Amir destroyed the Indian batting lineup from his stormy spell in the ICC Champions Trophy final. But since that impressive performance, he has managed to get only five wickets in the 14-day matches. He is not got 2 wickets in a single match. After this disappointing performance, it will be difficult for selectors to select the Mohammad Amir for WC 2019 team part only on the basis of experience & past performance.
