Here is a look at Bolo Jawan’s dream squad for the ICC world cup that begins next month in England.
After Shan Masood missed out on the opportunity that he was given against Australia; Fakhar Zaman, Abid Ali and Imam-ul-Haq are the obvious choices for the opening position and hence, we have them in our 15 member squad.
Middle Order and Wicket-keepers
Babar Azam, Haris Sohail, Mohd. Hafeez and Mohd. Rizwan will be our pick for the middle order. Well! This basically means Shoaib Malik only finds a place if Mohd. Hafeez isn’t fit. Haris Sohail just scored 2 centuries and we believe he is going to be a better option than Malik who has scored a hundred only once despite playing in all kinds of situations ever since he made a comeback in 2015. Moreover, since Mohd. Rizwan too seems to be in brilliant form, he find a place both as a back up to one of the middle-order batsmen as well as first choice wicket-keeper i.e. captain Sarfraz Ahmed.
With Yasir Shah being in awful form Imad Wasim and Shadab look to be the ideal choices. Both are pretty handy with the bat as well and therefore, as long as they are fit, there is no way we are leaving them out.
Shaheen Afridi, Hassan Ali, Usman Khan Shinwari, Junaid Khan, Mohd. Hasnain is going to be our pick for the fast bowling department. This means Mohd. Amir who is seriously out of form as well as Mohd. Abbas whose pace isn’t the kind you require during the death overs miss out. Similarly, we would prefer going in with specialists rather than someone like Faheem Ashraf who neither performs with the bat nor with the ball on a regular basis.
A Final Look
So, here is a final look at our dream team for the mega event:
Sarfraz Ahmed (captain), Imam-ul-Haq, Abid Ali, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Haris Sohail, Mohd. Hafeez/Shoaib Malik, Mohd. Rizwan, Imad Wasim, Shahdab Khan, Shaheen Afridi, Hassan Ali, Usman Khan Shinwari, Junaid Khan and Mohd. Hasnain
