The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced the 15-member Pakistan Squad for the T20 World Cup 2022, which is scheduled to be held from October 16 to November 13.
In the seven events to date, Pakistan has won the title in 2009 in the United Kingdom, reached the final in 2007 and featured in the 2010, 2012 and 2021 semifinals, a record that makes them one of the most consistent sides to date.
In the 15-player Pakistan Squad for the T20 World Cup 2022, top-order batter Shan Masood has been included in the side for the shortest format for the first-time along with fast bowlers Mohammad Wasim Junior and Shaheen Shah Afridi, while Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Haris and Shahnawaz Dahani have been named as the three traveling reserves.
Wasim Junior has been included after recovering completely from the side strain he suffered during the ACC T20 Asia Cup, whereas Shaheen, who is undergoing rehabilitation for a knee injury in London and expected to resume bowling early next month, will join the squad in Brisbane on October 15.
The PCB added that changes can be made to the Pakistan Squad for T20 World Cup 2022 till October 15, without having to get an approval from the Event Technical Committee.
