Srinagar: The Sunday’s Asia Cup final defeat against Sri Lanka is likely to cost senior batter Fakhar Zaman and hard hitters Asif Ali and Khushdil Shah their places in upcoming T20 World Cup squad for Pakistan.

As per report in Cricket Pakistan, the PCB selectors have been forced to consult again for the re-selection of the team for the England series, the tour of New Zealand and the ICC T20 World Cup.

Quoting sources Cricket Pakistan reported that Asif Ali, Fakhar Zaman and Khushdil Shah are in the danger zone; however, Shan Masood is a bright prospect to be named in the squad because of his splendid form.

“The selection committee had completed the selection of potential players and according to the proposed program, the national team was to be announced on Tuesday, but the defeat in two matches against Sri Lanka put a damper on the whole plan,” report said.

“During the ongoing National T20 in Multan, Chief Selector Mohammad Wasim sat and watched the final match with his fellow selectors and also expressed concern over the performance of some other players, including Fakhar Zaman, Khushdil Shah, Asif Ali,” report said.

Mohammad Wasim has returned to Lahore after initial discussions with the selectors. He is waiting for the return of captain Babar Azam and head coach Saqlain Mushtaq to consult with them on the changes in the team.

The England team is arriving in Karachi on September 15 for seven T20 matches, while the PCB has to announce the teams for the ICC World Cup before by September 15.

The selection committee wants to give a chance to players who can perform better in Australian conditions.
