Shadab Khan likely to be replaced by Abrar Ahmed

Pakistan suffered an early exit in the Asia Cup 2023 as the Men in Green lost straight games against India and Sri Lanka in the Super Four round. There is anxiousness within the PCB as the ICC World Cup 2023 is two weeks away.

September 28 is the last day to submit the 15-member squad. There are reports that after the failure of the Asia Cup, the list for the World Cup will feature a few new names.

Pakistan’s vice-captain Shadab Khan is likely to face the axe. The star all-rounder, who was their key contributor during the 2022 T20 World Cup, had a disastrous Asia Cup as he took just six wickets and could not contribute with the bat.

The Pakistani media has reported that spinner Abrar Ahmed, who rose to fame after the England Test series, is likely to be included in the team. The spinner has 38 Test wickets in 6 games and is yet to make his ODI debut.

There is another report that Shadab might be stripped of his role as vice-captain. Chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq would soon decide on Abrar’s selection.
