Mohammad Hafeez has announced his retirement from international cricket but will be available for T20 leagues across the globe.

Pakistan are trying to put India under pressure ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup match on October 24 in Dubai. They have announced their 12-man squad for the game. The team looks balanced with senior players included in the side. While Babar Azam will lead the batting chart, Shaheen Afridi is the best bowler of Pakistan.

“Pakistan has decided to go with a combination of senior and experienced cricketers in the clash against India. Unless fitness issues creep up, the same combination that is playing in the warm-up matches will be seen in action against India,” a source had said as reported by Geo News.

Pakistan have not included Sarfaraz Ahmed and Mohammad Nawaz. India have won all five matches in the T20 World Cup so far. Babar Azam is sounding confident ahead of the match. “Definitely we have played a lot of cricket in the UAE. These conditions suit us and we know how to play here. We need to keep things simple in all the departments,” the Pakistan skipper had earlier asserted.

Here is Pakistan’s 12 man squad for the World Cup clash against India:
Babar Azam (C), Mohammad Rizwan(wk), Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Asif Ali, Haider Ali, Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf
