Saim Ayub expected to open for Pakistan in the match against India

Saim Ayub and Muhammad Rizwan are expected to be the opening pair for the match. Meanwhile, Babar Azam will play one down.

Saim Ayub and Imad Wasim are expected to be roped into the Pakistan squad for the match against India on June 9th, 2024.

A humiliating defeat against the USA has called for some immediate changes in the squad. Azam Khan, after his consistently poor performance, is expected to be dropped from the squad. The young cricketer turned out to be a disappointment.

Moreover, team management is mulling over including the injured Imad Wasim in the squad. The pain in the ribs of Imad Wasim has not subsided, and there is a fear of fracture. Hence, if he plays an important clash against India, he might not be able to play the rest of the matches in the T20 World Cup 2024.

The team is also considering calling in Mehran Mumtaz as his replacement, who is currently in Pakistan right now. Pakistan’s team is receiving immense backlash at home after their humiliating defeat against the USA.

Saim Ayub and Muhammad Rizwan are expected to be the opening pair for the match. Meanwhile, Babar Azam will play one down.
