Pakistan Team Squad for T20 World Cup 2021

By Hitesh Jain on Sep 6, 2021 | T20 World Cup 2021

ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2021 is going to start in the month of October! The Pakistani cricket selectors have chosen a 15-player lineup that is highly experienced, and fearsome in terms of talent and skill. Shoaib Malik and Sarfaraz Ahmed, who led Pakistan in the 2007 and 2016 T20 World Cups, were left out of the team.

For the T20 World Cup 2021, Asif Ali and Khushdil Shah will also be making their comebacks.  After five T20Is versus New Zealand in Lahore on September 25 and October 3, Pakistan will welcome England for two T20Is in Rawalpindi on the 13th and 14th of October, respectively.

With their last T20Is against Zimbabwe and South Africa during this year, Asif Ali and Khushdil Shah were unexpectedly included in the World Cup team. They were not selected for the England and West Indies tours. Both Asif Ali and Khushdil Shah are domestic players who have been brought into the team to give additional firepower in the middle order of the game.

Asif has played 29 T20I matches and has scored 344 runs at the strike rate of 123.74 with an average of 16.38. Khushdil Shan has participated in 9 T20I and his average is 21.67. He has made 130 runs at the strike rate of 109.24. Despite the fact that Asif Ali and Khushdil Shah don't have outstanding stats to their names, there's no dispute about their ability and efficiency.
