Pakistan’s T20 World Cup Challenge Depends On Shaheen’s Fitness

Pakistan’s T20 World Cup Challenge Depends On Shaheen’s Fitness

October 12, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Sport News


At the Twenty20 World Cup in Australia, Pakistan, a former champion, will rely on pace spearhead Shaheen Shah Afridi to be at his destructive best.

After overcoming a right knee injury sustained in the first Test against Sri Lanka in July, the 22-year-old was permitted to join the team on Tuesday.

He missed the tri-series this week in New Zealand, the Twenty20 series against England, and the Asia Cup.

After a lengthy time of rehabilitation in London, the tall left-arm fast bowler will depart for Australia. He will play two warm-up matches in Brisbane the following week to restore his rhythm, the first of which is against England on Monday.

In order to be ready for their eye-popping first encounter against India at the expansive Melbourne Cricket Ground on October 23, which is predicted to draw 90,000 fans, Pakistan will play a last warm-up match against Afghanistan on the following Wednesday.

In the T20 World Cup in Dubai last year, Shaheen demolished India’s top order by removing Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, and Virat Kohli, finishing with scores of 3-31 as Pakistan cruised to a 10-wicket triumph.

According to captain Babar Azam, “He has healed nicely, and we are certain that he will be at his best come the India game.”

“Shaheen leads our strong fast bowling assault for us.”

Fakhar Zaman, a top-order batsman who made 55 runs unbeaten against Australia in last year’s semi-final, is also making progress after suffering a knee injury.

The nation’s cricket body said on Tuesday that Zaman, one of the three travelling reserves for the T20 World Cup, will accompany Shaheen to Brisbane to finish his recovery.

Since the World Cup last year, Pakistan has defeated Bangladesh and the West Indies in 3-0 T20 series, suffered a lone T20 loss to Australia in Lahore, and advanced to the Asia Cup final in the United Arab Emirates before falling to Sri Lanka.

At home, England won the series 4-3. Prior to Tuesday’s tri-series loss to the Black Caps, Pakistan had won the first two games against Bangladesh and New Zealand.

Azam remarked, “Our squad has done well, therefore I am hopeful about our prospects in the World Cup.” His team is in Group 2, where the top two teams go to the semifinals, along with India, Bangladesh, South Africa, and two qualifiers.

With the rapidly developing Haris Rauf, Naseem Shah, and Mohammad Hasnain complementing Shaheen, Pakistan has a strong and diverse bowling assault.

Leg-spinner Shadab Khan, left-armer Mohammad Nawaz, off-spinner Iftikhar Ahmed, and leg-spinner Usman Qadir make up the spin quartet.

Despite having Azam and Mohammad Rizwan at the top of the order, Pakistan’s middle order batting has remained their weak point.

When they scored 203 to defeat England in Karachi last month, the duo established a global record for the biggest chase without losing a wicket thanks to Azam’s unbeaten 110 and Rizwan’s 88-run opening partnership—their second double-century opening stand in T20s.

However, if the combination falters, the team’s batting insufficiency may be made obvious.

Azam acknowledges, “Aside from the positives, we had some worries and I think our middle-order has to step up,” citing the failure to consistently produce results by Iftikhar, Shan Masood, Khushdil Shah, Haider Ali, and Asif Ali despite their being given opportunities.

We sent out several batting and bowling combinations to measure our bench strength. We are also improving our fielding.

The 27-year-old is recognized as one of the best batters in the history of cricket, and his most recent accomplishments undoubtedly support this assertion. Babar scored 3,000 runs in in 73 Test innings, making him the sixth-fastest Pakistani hitter in history.

Javed Miandad, a former captain, and Mohammad Yousuf, a brilliant middle-order batsman, share the record for scoring 3,000 Test runs for Pakistan in the fewest number of innings (67).

For Pakistan, these are the fastest 3,000 Test runs:

Saeed Anwar, who scored 3,000 runs in in 68 innings, is third on the list. The next two players on the list, Younis Khan and Majid Khan, required 70 and 72 innings, respectively, to attain the milestone.

Babar, who is presently the world’s fourth-best Test batter, is in excellent form. He helped Pakistan escape a grave situation with a brilliant century in the first innings, and he is now closing in on a half-century as Pakistan attempts to chase down the mark.

The flashy batsman has an incredible Test cricket track record. In 73 innings, he has so far amassed 3,016 runs at an average of 47.87.

Pakistan Is Considering Playing In A Tri-Series Against New Zealand Ahead Of The T20 World Cup

Pakistan Is Considering Playing In A Tri-Series Against New Zealand Ahead Of The T20 World Cup

May 19, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Sport News

New Zealand Cricket (NZC) has formally contacted the PCB for the series, which is expected to take place in the first week of October, with the World Cup starting in the middle of the month.
“The PCB has been asked to play in a tri-series in New Zealand ahead of the T20 World Cup,” said the NZC.
“We are currently examining the invitation and will contact the NZC after a consultation period.”

While Bangladesh, which was also invited by the NZC, has confirmed their participation in the series, Pakistan’s congested September schedule has prevented the PCB from making a quick decision.

Pakistan will compete in the T20 Asia Cup from September 1 to 17, followed by a seven-match T20 series against England, the dates of which have yet to be determined.

Another issue that the PCB is considering is games that are scheduled outside of the pre-determined Future Tours Program. According to reports, the ultimate decision will be taken by the Pakistan team management, lead by Saqlain Mushtaq, and would take into account the players’ workload.

New Zealand’s cricketing ties with Pakistan were harmed when the latter abruptly cancelled their visit to the nation hours before the opening match, citing security concerns.

Dawn has learned that NZC reimbursed the PCB financially for their losses following the Kiwis’ departure. According to insiders, it paid a “significant” sum to cover the PCB’s expenses for the guests’ lodging, security, and venue arrangements. The PCB reacted angrily to New Zealand’s surprise withdrawal from the tour, with chairman Ramiz Raja criticizing the move.

New Zealand vowed to return to Pakistan in December-January for a three-match One-day International series and two Test matches, as well as five one-dyers and as many T20s in April 2023.
