Lahore: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is gearing up for the upcoming T20I and ODI series against New Zealand, with a selection committee meeting set to take place next week.
The meeting, which will be held on April 3rd or 4th, will be chaired by head coach Misbah-ul-Haq, and the squad for the series will be announced after consultation with captain Babar Azam.
Despite the team’s disappointing performance in the recent series against Afghanistan, sources suggest that only a few changes are expected for the T20I matches against New Zealand. It is likely that the selectors will opt for a strategy of giving another chance to younger players, with several new faces expected to make their way into the squad.
Among the contenders for the T20I series are Usama Mir, Haseebullah, and Abrar Ahmed, all of whom have been performing well in domestic cricket. The selectors are expected to give serious consideration to these young players, who have shown great potential and could be key to Pakistan’s success in the upcoming series.
While the squad for the T20I series is expected to see some changes, the ODI squad is likely to remain largely unchanged, with the core of the team expected to stay the same. The selectors will be looking for a strong performance from the team, as they prepare to take on New Zealand in what promises to be a thrilling series.
The selection committee meeting is a crucial event for the Pakistan cricket team, as they look to build a strong squad for the upcoming series against New Zealand. With the support of Babar Azam and Misbah-ul-Haq, the selectors will be looking to make the best possible choices to ensure that Pakistan performs to the best of their abilities and comes out on top in the series.
