Shadab Khan was retained as Pakistan’s white ball vice-captain in the ODI and T20 squads for the #PakvsNZ home series. It is worth mentioning here that both sides are scheduled to play 5 ODI and 5 T20s later in the month.
Shadab Khan Retained As White Ball Vice-captain
Prior to the announcement, reports in media suggested that PCB weren’t too happy with Shadab Khan and that there was a good chance of Shaheen Afridi replacing him as the country’s white-ball vice-captain. However, the rumor made way for some severe criticism, and so it seems that PCB at least for now have decided to do away with the idea and instead have chosen to stick with Shadab as Babar’s deputy.
So, What’s The Squad Like?
The squad includes the following players.
T20I: Babar Azam (captain), Shadab Khan (vice-captain), Faheem Ashraf, Fakhar Zaman, Haris Rauf, Iftikhar Ahmed, Ihsanullah, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Haris, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Rizwan, Naseem Shah, Saim Ayub, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Shan Masood and Zaman Khan
