Pakistan chief selector Inzimam ul Haq on Thursday April 18, 2019 announced the Pakistan preliminary squad for the ICC World Cup-2019 that included a major surprise.
Pakistan have left out Mohammad Amir and have included rookie pacer Mohammad Hasnain in his place. Senior batsman Shoab Malik has taken place power hitter Asif Ali while as Mohammad Hafeez has also found place in the team.
Another major surprise is Junaid Khan whom many reckoned will not make the cut. Another surprise in the list is Abid Ali who has made to the team just after one decent knock in the recent series against Australia.
BREAKING: Sarfaraz Ahmed (c), Fakhar Zaman, Imam-Ul-Haq, Babar Azam, Shadab Khan, Shoaib Malik, Faheem Ashraf, Shaheen Afridi, Hassan Ali, Abid Ali, Mohammad Hafeez, Imad Wasim, Junaid Khan, Mohammad Hasnain, Haris Sohail
However both Asif Ali and Mohammad Amir have got one lifeline left as they have been included as additional players for England series.
