The Pakistan U19 team has departed for West Indies to play the International Cricket Council (ICC) U19 Cricket World Cup after they lost to Sri Lanka in the U19 Asia Cup in Dhaka this week.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) informed media that except Abdul Wahid Bangalzai, who contracted with Covid-19, all the players have departed for West Indies via Dubai. Bangalzai will remain isolated for ten days under the supervision of Emirates Cricket Board (ECB).
Gazi Ghouri and Mohammad Zeeshan are travelling as reserves for the mega event. A replacement for Bangalzai will be made according to the need.
It must be noted here that Pakistan lost to Sri Lanka in U19 Asia Cup’s semi-final. India beat Sri Lanka to win the Asian tournament for eighth time.
The mega event is slated to be starting from January 14.
