Pakistan Announced Their New Captain, Check Out The New 15-Member Squad Of The Pakistan Team

Pakistan cricket board announced their 15-member Squad for the T20 series against Afghanistan. Shadab Khan will be the new captain of the team. But the special thing about the team is that Shaheen Shah Afridi’s name is not in it, along with Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan.

PCB Chief Najam Sethi announced that Shadab Khan would be seen handling the team’s command against Afghanistan. Najam Sethi also said that players who performed well in PSL have been given a chance in the series. Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan and Shaheen Shah Afridi have been given rest.

PCB chief Najam Sethi said that Mohammad Yousuf has been appointed as the team’s interim chief and batting coach for the tour of Sharjah. Mohammad Yousuf has been working as the batting coach for the last year.

Chief Selector Haroon Rashid said that they have followed the standard rotation policy by resting key players and providing opportunities to high-performing domestic players to showcase their talent and potential at the international level.

He further added that this would help the board to test the temperament and abilities of these players and strengthen them. And looking at the upcoming T20 World, which is scheduled to be held in the West Indies and the United States next year, we are preparing for the strong side.
