The Pakistan cricket team is getting ready for a crucial match against South Africa in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, scheduled for Friday in Chennai.
Fakhar Zaman, who recently recovered from a knee injury, is now fit and available for selection. While he participated in practice sessions on Wednesday and Thursday, there were a few indications of rustiness in his batting.
The team management is thinking about including him in the playing XI instead of fellow opener Imam-ul-Haq, although Fakhar’s recent lack of form could pose a challenge.
Everyone’s eyes will be on the captain, Babar Azam, who expects to exhibit his abilities and make a significant commitment in this pivotal match. With his calm and composed style, Mohammad Rizwan, serving as the team’s wicketkeeper-batsman, is anticipated to hold a vital position at number four.
Saud Shakeel and Iftikhar Ahmed are anxious to have a massive effect in their respective roles and contribute to the team’s success.
