After Pakistan’s disappointing performance in the Asia Cup 2023, the team management is indeed considering changes for the upcoming ICC World Cup 2023. According to sources, Mohammad Haris, Usama Mir, Mohammad Wasim Jnr, and Faheem Ashraf may not make the final 15-member squad due to their recent performances.

Based on the information provided, Pakistan’s prospective 15-member squad for the World Cup could be as follows: Babar Azam (c), Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Abdullah Shafiq, Salman Ali Agha, Iftikhar Ahmed, Saud Shakeel, Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Mohammad Nawaz, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf, Hassan Ali, and Zaman Khan.
It’s important to note that final squad selections will depend on various factors, including player form, fitness, and team strategy. The team management will carefully assess the players’ abilities before making the final decisions.
