Sarfaraz Ahmed, Fakhar Zaman, Haider Ali are included in Pakistan’s T20 world cup squad!

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Friday has announced the final squad for the ICC Men’s T20 Cricket World Cup.

Meanwhile, Muhammad Hasnain has been dropped. Khushdil Shah, Shahnawaz Dahani, and Usman Qadir have been included as the travelling reserve players.

As per the PCB announcement, Sarfaraz Ahmed and Haider Ali have replaced Azam Khan and Mohammad Hasnain respectively, while Fakhar Zaman, who was originally named as a travel reserve, has swapped places with Khushdil Shah.
