Pakistan Announced Squad For ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023: Checkout Schedule and Probable Playing XI

Pakistan enters the World Cup passionately, intending to win their second World Cup crown. The nation’s cricketing legacy includes a solitary World Cup victory in 1992, led by Imran Khan. Pakistan, a cricketing powerhouse, announced its squad for the upcoming World Cup on Friday, September 22, 2023.

In the lead-up to the tournament, Pakistan faced a setback as the promising fast bowler, Naseem Shah, was forced to withdraw due to injury. Naseem’s raw pace and potential made him a key figure in Pakistan’s bowling department, and his absence will be keenly felt.

Babar Azam, one of the most excellent batters of the current era, will lead Pakistan’s cricket team. Babar is the world’s number-one ODI batter in the ICC rankings because of his elegant stroke play and consistent performances.

Pakistan’s batting unit revolves around the captain himself, Babar Azam. The formidable Shaheen Shah Afridi spearheaded Pakistan’s bowling unit, a towering presence who can swing the ball and deliver fiery spells. Pakistan’s World Cup campaign starts with a clash against the Netherlands on October 6, 2023, at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.
