A number of Pakistani cricketers are in line to make their T20 debuts if Bangladesh tours Pakistan this month. So, here is a look at who they are and why they are likely to be part of the national T20 squad.
Abid Ali has been in phenomenal form in the longer formats and hence, Misbah-ul-Haq is likely to allow him an opportunity in the T20 format as well. It is also noteworthy that Abid might not be the kind of six-hitter that one can relate to in the shortest version of the game; nevertheless, he has the ability to find regular boundaries. Therefore, the upper-order batsman can come in handy while opening the innings and during the power play stage of a given T20 game.
Naseem Shah has been making headlines ever since his Test debut. The teenager has bowled with pretty good control in Test matches and thus, he seems all set to be given an opportunity in the T20s as well if Bangladesh tours Pakistan.
Haris Rauf has made a name for himself during the ongoing Big bash league in Australia. The 26 year old has bowled with good effect during the tournament and therefore, the probability of him making his T20 debut this month seems to be pretty bright.
