Second #PakvsEng T20 will be played today in Karachi and so, here is a look at why after losing the first game, Pakistan should play Asif Ali, Shadab and Mohd. Wasim ahead of Khushdil Shah, Naseem Shah and Shahnawaz Dahani.
Asif Ali Ahead Of Khushdil Shah
Khushdil Shah despite multiple opportunities is yet to deliver on a consistent basis. His form in recent matches has been nothing to talk home about and so, Pakistan should bring back Asif Ali instead in the finisher’s role for the game today. Moreover, since there is still time, the selectors should also reconsider their decision and replace Khushdil with someone more reliable in the T20 world cup squad.
Rest Naseem Shah, Play Shadab Khan Instead
Naseem Shah no doubt has been prolific form in recent months. Nevertheless, the wicket on which the last match was played in Karachi seemed to be supporting the spinners more and therefore, it certainly sounds against logic to aghast Naseem on such tracks before the ICC #T20WorldCup2022. Playing Shadab Khan (who was rested for the last game) ahead of Naseem then makes more sense.
Mohd. Wasim Ahead Of Shahnawaz Dahani
Mohd. Wasim if fit should be given a few matches prior to the T20 world cup so that his match fitness can be tested and so that, he is able to regain rhythm and form. Shahnawaz Dahani who is anyway part of the reserves for the mega event should then be rested for the game today.
