Dismissing all the speculations concerning the national team, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced a 15-man squad for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 event which is all set to be hosted by England and Wales.
Consistent poor run has pushed paceman Mohammad Amir out of the squad but he draws breath in the 17-man team to feature against England. Moreover, Junaid Khan has been preferred for his ability to swing the ball. Express paceman Mohammad Hasnain also grabbed the ticket to the mega-event.
After the announcement, many cricketers moved forward to share their two cents on the picked unit. One of the tweets came from the former ODI captain Azhar Ali who shared a positive message for the green shirts.
The 34-year old cricketer congratulated all the picked players as he believes that the team possesses a good mix of experience and youth. Furthermore, the Lahore born extended his good wishes for Sarfaraz and company. Pakistan would begin their World Cup campaign against West Indies on May 31.
