Pakistan team management have decided to drop Shoaib Malik from tomorrow’s World Cup opener against West Indies. His place has gone to Asif Ali. Moreover, Shaheen Shah Afridi and Mohammad Hasnain were the other two players left out.
It will be interesting to see who Pakistan drop from the 12. They could drop Imad Wasim in favour of Asif Ali or Haris Sohail could also sit out.
West Indies have been in great form in the recent past and a high scoring contest is expected.
12-member squad: Imam ul Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Muhammad Hafeez, Sarfraz Ahmed, Asif Ali, Haris Sohail, Hasan Ali, Wahab Riaz, Shadab Khan, Imad Waseem and Muhammad Aamir.
