Pakistan cricket team squad for Cricket World Cup 2023 was to be announced on Wednesday, however, final names have still not been revealed. Team management is holding consultations on the selection of players after the massive Asia Cup loss against India, especially the performance of Fakhar Zaman and Vice-Captain Shadab Khan came under scrutiny.
In the Asia Cup, the Pakistani team failed to qualify for the finals after losing to Sri Lanka. Pacers Harsi Rauf and Nasim Shah got injured, while Imam-Ul-Haq also suffered an injury, leading to more difficulties in the selection of the World Cup squad.
Surprisingly, Chief Selector Inzamam-ul-Haq, who selected the Asia Cup squad and is now tasked with selecting the World Cup team, was absent from the meeting.
Mickey Arthur admitted there were fitness and mid-order issues but the pair could not agree on World Cup plans. They want to go to the World Cup in a planned way.
During the meeting Bowling coach Morne Morkel suggested a separate coach for the spinners.
According to the ICC (International Cricket Council), all cricket boards have to announce their squads before September 28.
