Pakistan World Cup Squad 2019: Mohammad Amir and Asif Ali to be included in the squad
The final selection of Pakistan Cricket World Cup Squad 2019 will be announced in a few days. Initial reports suggest that Mohammad Amir and Asif Ali will be replacing Faheem Ashraf and Abid Ali in the squad. This decision has been reported to be suggested by Sarfaraz Ahmed, head coach Mickey Arthur, and chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq.
The World Cup 2019 will start from 30th of May, 2019 in England and Wales. Pakistan will be seen playing their opening match against the West Indies on 31st of May, 2019.
Mohammad Amir, who is suffering from chicken pox is currently under treatment in London and will be making his comeback in the World Cup. Meanwhile, Asif Ali’s daughter is fighting her battle with cancer and getting treatment in the US.
Numerous people, including the legendary Wasim Akram, have spoken in the favor of Mohammad Amir. Inclusion of Amir is still subject to fitness, but a recent unsatisfactory performance by bowlers have paved the path for him in the World Cup 2019.
“Mohammad Amir is a fantastic bowler. Every time I have faced him, he has got me in trouble. If Amir is bowling anywhere near as well as he can, he will be a massive asset for Pakistan ” David Malan
Pakistan will also be seen playing two matches against England before the commencement of World Cup, 2019.
Even though all the teams have announced the players who will be a part of their respective squads. Still, they can make changes before the 22nd of May, 2019.
