T20 World Cup 2022 – Fakhar Zaman replaces injured Usman Qadir in Pakistan’s World Cup squad

Previously on the reserve list, Fakhar Zaman has been included in Pakistan’s 15 squad for the T20 World Cup after recovering from a knee injury. Usman Qadir, meanwhile, is one of three traveling reserves after failing to recover from a hairline fracture on his right thumb.

Qadir suffered the injury during the fourth T20I against England in Karachi on September 25, and a PCB statement said he would not be available for selection until October 22, after which Pakistan can bring him back into their main squad as an injury replacement.

Fakhar and Shaheen Shah Afridi had both undergone treatment and rehabilitation for knee injuries, and as reported by ESPNcricinfo on Tuesday, they will join the World Cup squad in Brisbane on Saturday. They will both be available for Pakistan’s official warm-up matches against England on October 17 and Afghanistan on October 19.

Pakistani squad: Babar Azam (capt), Shadab Khan (vice capt), Asif Ali, Fakhar Zaman, Haider Ali, Haris Rauf, Iftikhar Ahmed, Khushdil Shah, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Mohammad Wasim Jnr, Naseem Shah, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Shan Masood
