PCB calls up 23 probable players for World Cup selection

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has invited a total of 23 players for the fitness test, to be held on the 15th and 16th of April, in order to select the final squad which would feature in this year’s World Cup.

The list includes Sarfaraz Ahmed (captain), Abid Ali, Asif Ali, Babar Azam, Faheem Ashraf, Fakhar Zaman, Haris Sohail, Hassan Ali, Imad Wasim, Imam-ul-Haq, Junaid Khan, Mohammad Abbas, Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Rizwan, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Shan Masood, Shoaib Malik, Usman Shinwari, and Yasir Shah.

The selection committee along with head coach Mickey Arthur would monitor the fitness of players before the announcement of the final squad on April 18. The green shirts would depart for England a month before the start of the tournament as they have a couple of practice games followed by an ODI series against the hosts prior to the World Cup.
