Pakistan announces Asia Cup 2018 squad


#1
Pakistan have gone for a pace-heavy lineup; no fewer than six seamers feature in the 16-man squad. Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali, Usman Khan, Mohammad Amir, Shaheen Afridi and Junaid Khan will all travel to the UAE as competition for places in that department heats up. As a result, Yasir Shah, who was a surprise inclusion for the series in Zimbabwe, misses out. Mickey Arthur believes the 6'6" Shaheen, 18, is one of the most promising pacers to come out of Pakistan, even comparing him to a young Mitchell Starc. He is yet to make his ODI debut.

Imad Wasim, whose fitness has constantly frustrated Pakistan's backroom staff over the past year or so, finds himself out of the squad once more after failing fitness tests ahead of the squad announcement. The 29-year old was the only player from the 18-man preliminary squad to have failed his fitness test on Monday, and was given another chance earlier today, only to fall short again.


Quote:We have a clear stance that only those players who pass the fitness tests should be selected. Those who are unable to do so are provided two to three chances. Imad was also provided those chances, but he failed. He has performed for Pakistan when he has played and he would have been a good addition to the side. But, we are not going to compromise on our stance related to the fitness.


Inzamam said.

There are no other surprises in what is unquestionably a full-strength squad. Asif Ali was retained after impressing in Zimbabwe, while Haris Sohail was perhaps slightly more fortunate to find a place in the squad, having not played any of the ODIs in Zimbabwe. With Hafeez out, Shoaib Malik may be expected to shoulder more bowling responsibility, particularly if Nawaz and Sohail, who can also serve as spin-bowling options, do not play.

Pakistan begin their Asia Cup campaign against a qualifier on September 16, before they round out their group against India on September 19.

دیکھ کر خوشی ہوی کے گھٹیا پروفیسر کو نکال دیا

لیکن ایک پرچی ابھی بھی موجود ہے شان مسعود کی شکل میں۔ اس کے والد یونایٹڈ بنک لمیٹڈ میں بورڈ آف ڈایرکٹر میں شامل ہیں اور ساتھ ہی پی سی بی کی گوورننگ باڈی میں بھی شامل ہیں بطور یونایٹڈ بنک لمیٹڈ ممبر۔ 

سنا تھا انضمام نے پرچی سسٹم ختم کر دیا لیکن اس کو اور امام الحق کو دیکھ کر لگتا نہیں ہے۔ اسی لیے فواد عالم بھی ٹیم سے باہر ہے۔

شان مسعود اتنا برا نہیں ہے ویسے خاص طور پر ون ڈے میں۔ ہاں ٹیسٹ میچز میں اس کی پرفارمنس بلکل کھسی ہے۔ اس کی لسٹ اے میں ۵۸ اوسط ہے پچھلے ۷۷ میچز میں اور پچھلے دنوں پاکستان کپ میں بھی اچھی کارکردگی دکھایٗ۔
