The Interim Selection Committee of the Pakistan Cricket Board has nominated 21 probables for the three ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League matches against New Zealand, which will be contested at the National Bank Cricket Arena on January 9, 11, and 13.
Tayyab Tahir, an uncapped batsman, and wrist spinner Usama Mir have been picked to the team following outstanding performances in the Pakistan Cup, while Shan Masood and Haris Sohail have been returned after being out of ODI action since 2019 and 2020, respectively. Kamran Ghulam, a member of the Test team, has been included in the ODI squad for the first time.
Haris Rauf, who was injured during the first Test against England in Rawalpindi, has fully recovered and has been named to the squad. Despite making remarkable progress, Shaheen Shah Afridi was not included because the selectors, in collaboration with the medical panel, decided to give him more time to regain full fitness. He is scheduled to return to competitive cricket in the HBL Pakistan Super League 8 next month.
Shadab Khan, Pakistan’s vice-captain, was not considered for selection after breaking his right index finger in Australia last week. Because Shadab is unavailable for this series, Mr. Najam Sethi, Chair of the PCB Management Committee, has selected Shan Masood as vice-captain.
