Pakistan World Cup Squad: Karachi Ignored As Usual

KARACHI: The Pakistan Cricket Board announced its 15-member squad for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 to be held in Australia and New Zealand on Wednesday January 7. Misbah Ul Haq will lead Pakistan. The squad contains two openers, four middle order batsmen, five pace bowlers, one spinner, two all-rounders and a wicket-keeper/batsman.

However, selectors as usual disregarded the Karachiites Asad Shafiq and Fawwad Alam performances and preferred those who played only one and three matches in their entire career. The people of Karachi termed this as a biased selection.

Sohail Khan, who last represented Pakistan in 2011 is in team. Sohaib Maqsood, Junaid Khan and Ehsan Adil will feature in the squad along with Shahid Afridi who will play in a fifth ICC Cricket World Cup since his debut back in 1999.

Chief Selector Moin Khan claimed that this was the best possible squad from the available resources, and the selectors collectively believe it has the required talent and skill to bring the title back to Pakistan.
