The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has conducted fitness tests of the 23 probable players who would eventually make the World Cup squad this year. The list did not include fast bowler Wahab Riaz who has not been able to make a comeback since getting injured in the 2017 Champions Trophy.
In a recent TV interview, Wahab was quite optimistic in his speech as he still feels that he would get the chance that he deserves, Almighty willing. However, he did say that not getting selected among the probables was a great shock for him as he had done everything right before that announcement.
Wahab was the highest wicket taker in the recently concluded Pakistan Cup as he was coming off a great season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) in which he also finished as the 3rd highest wicket-taker.
