Pakistan Official 15-Man Team Squad For Champions Trophy 2017
|Sarfraz Ahmed (Capt & Wkt)||Haris Sohail|
|Ahmed Shehzad||Azhar Ali|
|Babar Azam||Fahim Ashraf|
|Fakhar Zaman||Hasan Ali|
|Imad Wasim||Junaid Khan|
|Mohammad Amir||Mohammad Hafeez|
|Shadab Khan||Shoaib Malik|
Haris Sohail makes his comeback in the Pakistan cricket team after a long rest along with duration of injuries. Last time Haris played for Pakistan in May 2015 against Zimbabwe in Lahore. Umar Akmal was added in the squad, but he failed his fitness test and Haris Sohail replaced Umar. On the counter side, Sarfraz Ahmed will be leading the national team during “Champions Trophy 2017”.
Ahmed Shehzad also makes his position strong in the official Pakistan team squad for champions trophy 2017 besides his out of form attitude, the selectors decided to send Ahmed to England representing the Pakistani cricket team. Azhar Ali, Babar Azam and Fahim Ashraf are also in the squad to make batting lineup more dangerous.
Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Babar Azam and Imad Wasim are also part of Pakistan official players for champions trophy 2017. Junaid Khan, Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz are the main seamers for the Pakistani cricket team. Shadab Khan, who made his debut in international cricket during West Indies tour is also added in the squad, but he will make his debut in ODI this time.
Fakhar Zaman and Hasan Ali are also part of the squad who will be playing the “Champions Trophy 2017”. The pitches of England & Wales are expected to be bouncy ones and that’s why the slow pitches will be needed to be tackled by seamers and pacers and Pakistan have best in form fast bowlers right now.
Shoaib Malik, Shadab Khan and Babar Azam are the key assets if they need any spin bowler according to the pitch conditions. Selectors did not add Yasir Shah in the squad for champions trophy 2017, but the reasons are not valid enough. They should have added such a dangerous spin bowler for the slow and turning pitches.
