Fast bowler Hassan Ali has replaced Nasim Shah in Pakistan cricket team after the later sustained a shoulder injury during Asia Cup 2023. Today, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced the squad for the World Cup 2023.
Some fans are appreciating the selection of the squad but others are criticising it.
Here are some reactions:
Inzamam also confirms Naseem isn't just out for the World Cup, but "probably" for longer.— Danyal Rasool (@Danny61000) September 22, 2023
As things stand, it's understood he'll miss the Australia series, and probably even the PSL.
With a heavy heart, I'm sharing that I will not be part of this amazing team that will be representing our beloved country. While I'm disappointed, I believe everything is in Allah's hands. InshahAllah will be on the field very soon.— Naseem Shah (@iNaseemShah) September 22, 2023
Thank you to all my fans for the prayers!
Vikrant Gupta who is an Indian news anchor also tweeted:
Contrary to rumours in Pakistani media, Babar and Co have aligned their World Cup 15 with players they had been backing for a long time. Hasan Ali may not be a Naseem Shah but his experience will be critical for them. #PakistanCricket— Vikrant Gupta (@vikrantgupta73) September 22, 2023
Shukar Alhumdulilah! It's an indescribable feeling to be able to play the World Cup for my country. InshAllah I will give my absolute best for Pakistan. Please remember me and our team in your prayers. Also a big thanks to my fans for always supporting me 🏼#PakistanZindabad 🇵🇰 pic.twitter.com/Kul3zpbXis— Hassan Ali 🇵🇰 (@RealHa55an) September 22, 2023
