Pakistan cricket selectors on Thursday appointed a 15-player squad to the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019, which comprised 11 players in the side that won the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 in England and Wales.

Pakistan defeated India by 180 runs at The Oval on 18 June 2017 to become only the third largest country in the history of this match to acquire all four men’s ICC occasions — the ICC Cricket World Cup, the ICC Champions Trophy, the ICC T20 World Cup and the ICC U19
Cricket World Cup. The other two sides to attain the rare Golden Slam are both India as well as the Windies.

Four other players chosen for the World Cup are Abid Ali, Imam-ul-Haq, 19-year-old Mohammad Hasnain and Shaheen Shah Afridi. Imam and Shaheen have showcased from the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup 2014 and 2018, respectively.

The selectors Also Have called Asif Ali and Mohammad Amir for its England T20I and ODIs to be performed at the lead up to the World Cup out of 5-19 May. Mohammad Amir was also a part of the ICC Champions Trophy-winning squad, along with both players will also function as cover to the World Cup squad and, when needed, could be drafted to the side before 23 May with no ICC approval.

The World Cup squad is a blend of 3 openers, four middle-order batsmen, wicketkeeper/batsman in Sarfaraz Ahmed, two spinners and five quick bowlers.

Wicket-keeper batsman Sarfaraz Ahmed will lead Pakistan at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 and at which the bats were a question on everybody’s mind.

Sarfaraz Ahmed to bat at Number 5 at ICC Cricket World Cup.

From the 10 ODIs where he’s come in at No 5, Ahmed has scored 427 runs. The skipper believes his decision to bat in this place is a sensible one and could benefit the group.

Sarfraz’s batting was an issue as of late since he’s struggled to muster huge scores. Regardless of Sarfraz’s problems using the bat, Inzamam is backing him to play a critical role throughout the World Cup.

“Sarfraz Ahmed is an established performer with the bat that has played with lots of critical knocks for Pakistan along with his existence further reinforces the center sequence,” Inzamam was quoted as saying from PakPassion.

Pakistan will start their World Cup campaign against West Indies on May 31 followed by games against England (June 3) and Sri Lanka (June 7).

The group will then play with Australia (June 12) before confronting arch-rivals India (June 16) at Manchester.

Pakistan will travel to London to play with South Africa on (June 23) at Lord’s, Also Play against New Zealand (June 26),
Bangladesh (July 5) and Afghanistan (June 29).

The Pakistan Cricket staff will hit England at least five months until it officially kicks off its effort at ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. The group will depart for England on April 23.
