Mohd. Hafeez and Khushdil Shan then are likely to bat at the number four and five positions respectively. Iftikhar Ahmed’s poor form with the bat means that he has a 50-50 chance of playing the concerned game. Iftikhar then is likely to bat at the number six position if he is given an opportunity otherwise it will be either Imad Wasim or Mohd. Rizwan. Faheem Ashraf, Zafar Gohar or Usman Qadir might replace Iftikhar Ahmed in the lineup i.e. if the selectors decide to go that route. Also, there is no chance of Shadab Khan playing as he is still recovering from an injury.
