While explaining the reason for dropping Usama, selector Abdul Razzaq said, “We already have Shadab and we don’t want to have similar type of bowlers. That is why we have selected Abrar Ahmed over Usama Mir. So now we have Shadab and a mystery spinner in Abrar.”

Wahab Riaz on the other hand while shedding light on Hassan’s inclusion said, “Hasan Ali was already in our plans for T20 World Cup 2024. He was playing county cricket as he was under a contract. He is a backup of Haris Rauf and we have told him that. If Haris gets fit before England series than he will be our first choice. If we feel Haris Rauf is not match fit then Hasan Ali will replace him.”
