Pakistan all-rounder excited to see Saim and Azam’s performance against Afghanistan.
The upcoming T20I series against Afghanistan presents an opportunity for young Pakistani cricketers to prove themselves at the international level. With the series being close to the HBL Pakistan Super League 8, the players enter the series with momentum and a chance to establish themselves as reliable options for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup next year.
Pakistan cricket selectors have announced the inclusion of four uncapped players, Ihsanullah, Saim Ayub, Tayyab Tahir, and Zaman Khan, for the upcoming T20I series against Afghanistan. The selectors have also recalled Abdullah Shafique, Azam Khan, Faheem Ashraf, and Imad Wasim, who have been in impressive form lately.
Pakistan’s captain for the upcoming T20I series against Afghanistan, Shadab Khan, believes that his team has the potential to perform well and outshine the opposition. However, he also acknowledges that the players will need to push themselves and overcome the challenges of international cricket. Shadab has previously captained Pakistan in a three-T20I series against New Zealand in 2020.
