Faheem Replaces Nawaz as Pakistan Announce Lineup for Super 4 Match Against Bangladesh

To prepare for their Asia Cup Super Four opener against Bangladesh, Pakistan did something unusual by announcing their playing XI a day early. They shared this lineup on their official social media account on September 5, 2023. The much-anticipated match is set for September 6, 2023, at Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium.

The only change in Pakistan’s lineup from their previous match against India is the inclusion of fast bowling all-rounder Faheem Ashraf instead of spin bowling all-rounder Mohammed Nawaz. This is the third time they’ve revealed their squad ahead of a match, showing their confidence in their decision-making.

Pakistan made it to the Super Four stage by defeating Nepal by a commanding 238-run margin and sharing points with India due to rain.

Bangladesh secured their spot in the Super Four by beating Afghanistan in their second group stage match after losing to Sri Lanka in their first game.
