It is no secret that Pakistan will desperately want skipper Babar Azam to fire regularly during the ICC T20 world cup. He is the number one batsman in the country and so, the men in green cannot afford to see the 26 year old not delivering when it matters the most. Moreover, Babar’s captaincy skills too will be important for the national side who not only aim to win their first game ever against arch-rivals India during the tournament but who also need to win the world cup to somehow regain their lost glory at the international level.

Rizwan is arguably the second most important player in the lineup. He is all set to open with the skipper and hence, his contributions up the order will be crucial particularly because the country’s middle-order isn’t as settled as one would have liked. Moreover, as always he also has an important role to play as the team’s first choice wicket-keeper.

Hasan Ali is one player who has the ability to lift an entire dressing room. Not only would Pakistan want him to provide breakthroughs with the ball but the team management will also want to seem him contribute with the bat while playing in the lower-order.

Pakistan will desperately hope for some quick wickets within the power play and so, Shaheen’s form during the event is likely to play a very important role in this regard.

Pakistan requires Mohd. Hafeez to score consistently in order to provide stability to the country’s middle-order that has misfired more often than not during the last six months or so. Moreover, the “Professor” also has an important role to play with the ball because the event is taking place UAE.
