Due to injuries to key pacers, Pakistan has reshuffled their Asia Cup team.

Zaman Khan will replace pacer Naseem Shah in Pakistan’s Asia Cup team, according to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

Naseem suffered a right shoulder injury during Pakistan’s Super Four match versus India. He is being monitored by the team’s medical staff, which is taking all essential steps in preparation for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup.

Zaman Khan is a right-handed bowler who has played for Pakistan in T20Is and has already joined the squad in Sri Lanka. He has four wickets at an average of 32.5 and an economy of 6.66 in six T20Is for Pakistan.

Pacer Haris Rauf is also being watched after failing to bowl on the reserve day of the Super Four game against India. According to the PCB update, he is doing well despite feeling soreness in his right side on the opening day of the match.

Team doctor Sohail Saleem indicated that the pacers were receiving the finest care imaginable.

“These two fast bowlers are our assets, and the team’s medical staff will provide them with the best possible care leading up to the crucial World Cup.”

Pacer Shahnawaz Dahani is also slated to join the team soon. He’ll be there on Thursday am.

Pakistan’s unblemished streak in the Asia Cup came to an end in their Super Four match against India, which they lost by a record score of 228 runs. This was their heaviest ODI defeat against India.

The next Asia Cup match for Pakistan will be a Super Four match against Sri Lanka. Given the Super Four point table setups, this is effectively a qualifier for the forthcoming Asia Cup final on September 17th. India has already qualified for the final with victories over Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
