Here is a look at 6 Pakistani cricketers who find themselves in trouble after the country’s #CWC23 campaign ended in a disaster. The green shirts were able to secure only 8 points and other than New Zealand, failed to win a single match against a noteworthy competitor.
Babar Azam Likely To Lose Captaincy After The #CWC23
Skipper Babar Azam most definitely is being blamed for allegedly backing his friends in the national team even though well before the start of the world cup it was apparent that most of them were seriously out-of-form. His batting performance too seems to have gone down owing to the pressure of captaincy and his field setting throughout the event were questionable. Hence, it is no wonder that the 29-year-old is likely to lose at least white ball captaincy following the ICC event.
#CWC23 Leaves Shadab Khan In The Middle Of No Where
Shadab Khan was in horrific form prior to the start of the world cup and unfortunately for him, his performance during the ODI world cup once more was more nothing home to talk about. He is likely to lose both the vice-captaincy and his place in the playing XI.
Nawaz too looked out of sorts throughout the event with both ball and bat in the hand and therefore, it is highly likely that Pakistan will now look elsewhere to find his replacement.
Mir is yet another spinner in the squad who failed to impress. Therefore, there is a good probability of him facing the selector’s axe when white ball team is announced again.
Imam lost his place in the playing XI during the event. Hen only represents Pakistan in the ODI and Test formats. Pakistan play a Test series in Australia next where the men in green historically, don’t do well. Therefore, if he fails to deliver again, there is a good probability of him losing his place across formats for a considerable period of time.
Haris’ reputation has received a serious dent as emerged as one of the most expensive bowlers in the event. Haris then might lose his place to one of the other pacers in the coming days.
