#PakvAus warm-up match of the #worldcup23 is scheduled to be played today and so, here is a look at why it is important to play Fakhar Zaman, Shadab Khan and Shaheen Afridi during the encounter in Hyderabad, India.
Why Pakistan Must Play Fakhar Zaman Despite His Bad Form During The #PakvAus Warm-up Match
Fakhar might not have been in the best of forms during the Asia Cup however, on flat tracks in India, there is every probability of him regaining form ahead of the ICC event. The 33 year is an impact player without a shadow of doubt and so, with him in good form, the Babar Azam led team is almost certain to benefit.
Shadab Khan was given rest during the previous warm-up, apparently, in order to ensure that he is able to recover from the mental stress that he had been going through during the previous few months owing to poor form. Despite the aforesaid, the leggie must be allowed to play against a quality opposition like Australia so that the think-tank is able to assess improvement or deterioration in his overall performance well before the start of the world cup.
Afridi was also rested during the previous warm-up against the Kiwis. However, the time seems right to allow the south paw an opportunity to dust off rust if there is any against Australia today in Hyderabad.
