Pakistan cricket has been following the mantra of inducting more and more young blood into the side under the coaching stint of Mickey Arthur. This has allowed the team to progress immensely in limited overs cricket, with exuberance exuding from the attitude of the players.
This method of building up the team means that Pakistan currently possesses the youngest squad in this year’s World Cup, as the average age of the 15 members is 27.3.
They have closely followed the fast-rising cricketing nation of Afghanistan at 27.4, who have also adopted the approach of bringing young talent to the fore.
This is surely exciting for Pakistan fans, given the fact that the young performers have shown the skill to excel on the biggest stage. Similarly, the experience of Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Hafeez and Sarfaraz Ahmed adds the notion of seniority into the equation.
