Pakistan and England will begin their World Cup campaign with a T20I match against each other tomorrow followed by a series of 5 ODIs.
However, with experienced guys like Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Hafeez unavailable for the 1st T20I match, the chances of Imam-ul-Haq making his T20I debut are quite high.
Fakhar will open the innings with either Babar Azam or Imam-ul-Haq followed by the skipper Sarfraz Ahmed. Asif Ali will also get a chance to showcase his talent and the chances of the Islamabad United player making it to the playing XI are quite high.
Amir, Hasan and Shaheen will take the responsibility of the pace attack whereas Faheem Ashraf and Imad Wasim will play the role of all-rounders.
Here’s the predicted XI of Pakistan for the first T20I against England.
1. Fakhar Zaman
2. Babar Azam
4. Sarfraz Ahmed
5. Haris Sohail
6. Asif Ali
7. Imad Wasim
8. Faheem Ashraf
9. Mohammad Amir
10. Hasan Ali
11. Shaheen Shah Afridi
