ایشیا کپ 2018کے لئے 16کھلاڑیوں پر مشتمل پاکستانی اسکواڈ۔ویڈیو دیکھیں

Asia Cup 2018 is just around the corner and many cricket fans are expecting some really tight games being played in the event. Especially the game between India and Pakistan is definitely the game to look out for. These two teams might also prevail others to meet in the finals as well. Pakistan cricket board, the selection committee along with skipper Sarfraz Ahmed and head coach Mickey Arthur will not take any risk in finalizing a really tough team for this event. As team India will be a part of this event as well and Pakistan will play against the arch rivals so the PCB, selection committee, Sarfraz and Arthur will be looking to finalize a good solid batting and bowling unit. Pakistan cricket team has recently done really well in Zimbabwe. They won the tri nation series against the hosts and Australia beating Australia in the finals. Then they gave the hosts a clean sweep in the five match ODI series. So this team is in a really good practice with both bat and ball.

If we look at the team which played in Zimbabwe there are strong chances that most of the team will remain the same. The playing eleven in the t20 and odi series in Zimbabwe did some really good job so Sarfraz and Arthur will definitely like to play with the same men in the Asia cup as well. The reason is that these players are in practice and they have performed well in the international games. Let us take the example of Fakhar Zaman. He scored 515 runs in the five match series against Zimbabwe. His average was over four hundred. Now you cannot go without Fakhar Zaman in the Asia Cup. There is no point in not picking him up for the event. In fact in case if he is not there in the team then fans will post some serious criticism as well. So Pakistan cricket team selectors will definitely think about inducting all the names who have recently performed well in international games.

Now comes the question about Mohammad Hafeez. His case is dubious. He might get selected but then again will he play the matches or not is another big question. Hafeez failed in the t20 series and could not perform well enough. He was not given a chance in the ODI series. Imam Ul Haq got the opportunity and he did really well. He is a really good solid opening batsman. He has a few technical issues but they can be covered. Imam scored two hundreds in the series as well. So his job as the opening batsman along with Fakhar Zaman is confirmed. There might be a few bowling changes but that too is just a guess and not confirmed news. But one thing is certain that the selected team will be a strong unit for sure. Pakistan will not take any chances.
