Pakistan team Squad T20 World Cup 2016 Preview:
Pakistanis will be taking part in the ICC T20 Cricket World Cup 2016 in the captaincy of Shahid Afridi who is their regular T20I captain. Even though he is not consistent with the bat but his bowling form is going good as he took wickets regularly in the recently concluded PSL. Pakistan have made a couple of surprise picks in their world T20 squad with the likes of Khurram Manzoor and Iftikhar Ahmed.
Manzoor hasn’t been in the national side for quite some time and suddenly he has been picked for such a major event. Iftikhar also has not performed too well on the international scene and even when he was given chances in the national side previously he did not perform that well.
But other than that, Pakistan squad seems pretty good and competitive. Mohammad Hafeez has been in good form for quite some time and he will be there right at the top. Umar Akmal will be the key as he showed some great skills with the bat in PSL and will be expected to play big knocks in the big event as well.
Their batting is also strengthened by the experience of Shoaib Malik and the young hands of Babar Azam. Babar has been playing exceptionally well in recent times and showed his skills with the bat against New Zealand in recent series as well. They have also picked a couple of youngsters from the PSL with the likes of Mohammad Nawaz and Rumman Raees. Nawaz is really an exciting talent as he showed what he can do with the bat as well as ball in PSL. Rumman Raees is also a good prospect with the ball.
As for their bowling, the strength lies in Mohammad Irfan and the comeback player Mohammad Amir. However, they also have Wahab Riaz and Anwar Ali in the squad as well. Wahab has been their bowling spearhead since the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 and he has proven his worth to the national side on many occasions.
However, Pakistan seems to be a bit weaker when it comes to spin bowling as they don’t seem to have any major spinner in their squad except the youngster Nawaz. Imad Wasim can also contribute with his left-arm spin but he may not be too penetrative. However, overall, Pakistan seem to have a balanced squad and they will be seem competing hard for the title for sure.
