Pakistan Complete Squad For Asia Cup 2023

Pakistan Top Order & Batting Line-up:

Starting with the batsmen, Pakistan need solid openers. And he exists in the form of Babar Azam & Imamul Haq. Now Babar is also coming as a onedown batter. But if he can provide a solid start along with Imam, it will be great for the team.20 Potential Pakistani Players For Asia Cup 2023 Squad, Matches SportsClab-Com

Imam’s statistics also support what I am just talking about Imam Performances. In ODIs, Imamulhaq averages 51 in 55 innings, with a strikerate of 82.81. If the management gives him enough opportunities, he can prove to be the answer to Pakistan’s opening woes.
Team Pakistan’s reliable openers ImamulHaq & Fakhar Zaman should be the 1st choice for the mega event. Shaan Masood &Abdullah Shafiq are the other two openers who should also be considered as backup openers in the upcoming Asia Cup 2023 in Pakistan & Sri Lanka. Babar Azam will no doubt play at number three.Pakistan Squad For ODI Asia Cup 2023

Babar needs no introduction. What worries Pakistan the most is its middle order. Falling in between makes fans’ hearts skip a beat. To stop him, batsmen like Abdullah, Fakhar Zaman and Rizwan will have to step up.

There are also Sarfraz who are performing well these days. Some competition for Rizwan, isn’t it? But it is good if they take it as a healthy competition. Pakistan Squad For Asia Cup 2023 Captain Venue Matches Fixtures

Pakistan Middle Order & All-Rounders

Pakistan’s middle order has been in the news for its lack of consistency in 50-Over matches. The first selection slots for the mega event will consist of Mohammad Rizwan, Agha Salman & Fakhar Zaman. Abdullah Shafiq & Iftikhar Ahmed famous as #IftiMania are the other contenders for the upcoming Asia Cup 2023.Pakistan Squad For Asia Cup 2023

Shadab can provide a lot of power in the batting. His googly is unreadable, but if he can repeat what he did in the PSL, Sheedy is a player to look out for. Also, Nawaz has played some very good spells in New Zealand’s tour of Pakistan. He is not as reliable with the bat as Shadab, but his bowling makes up for it. The rest of the all-rounders are new to the scene and will have to prove themselves in the final squad.

Pakistan Bowling Department


Since the next Asia Cup will be played in Pakistan & Sri Lanka, the pitches will be spinner friendly. So no doubt spinners will have a huge role in the next Asia Cup 2023. Therefore, team Pakistan will prefer more spinners in these situations. Shadab Khan and Mohammad Nawaz are Pakistan’s first choice spinners in the starting IX.

Fast Bowlers:

As Pakistan has always been known as the “production factory of fast bowlers”, there are plenty of options for Team Pakistan, especially in situations that require fast bowlers. Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf, Naseem Shah and Mohammad Wasim Jr will be the first choice bowlers in the squad for the major event. Pakistan Squad For Asia Cup 2023 Captain Venue Matches Fixtures
