Pakistan include Riaz, Amir, Asif Ali in 15-member squad

Pakistan selectors on Monday announced that they have included three cricketers- Asif Ali, Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz in their fifteen member squad.

Abid Ali, Junaid Khan and Faheem Ashraf, who were named in the initial squad, will make way for the trio. While announcing the final squad, chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq also mentioned that legspinner Shadab Khan has received a 100% clearance to play in the tournament.

Mohammad Hafeez who’s participation was subjected to fitness is also included in the squad.

The 33-year-old Wahab Riaz’s most recent appearance in the 50-over format came in the 2017 Champions Trophy group stage encounter against India. Riaz was one of the best bowlers in the 2015 World Cup and that had paved the way for him to make a surprise return.

Also, in the England series, Junaid and Faheem got hit for plenty and that made the selectors opt for this decision. Also, Asif Ali batted well on the surface which helped him to grab a spot in the squad.

Pakistan Squad: Sarfraz Ahmed (c), Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam, Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Hafeez, Asif Ali, Shadab Khan, Imad Wasim, Haris Sohail, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Hasnain
