Pakistan have named their 15-member squad for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 to be held in Australia from October 16 to November 13. While Babar Azam and Shadab Khan have been retained as captain and vice-captain respectively, top-order batter Shan Masood has earned his maiden call-up to the T20 squad.
Pakistan did not go into the Test series against Sri Lanka as favourites. This was specifically because they had not won a Test series in Sri Lanka in nearly a decade. But, it must be said they put up a fantastic performance to pull off a memorable series triumph.
Pakistan have grabbed the initiative in the opening Test following a solid batting performance on Day 2 to move into a first innings lead. Having bowled out the Proteas for a modest total of 249, Pakistan are sitting pretty at 263 for 3.
