Finally on 15th September 2022, in preparation for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Australia 2022, which will take place from October 16 to November 13, Pakistan’s cricket selectors today revealed their team. Pakistan has been one of the most consistent teams to date, having won the championship in 2009 in the United Kingdom, advanced to the final in 2007, and participated in the semifinals in 2010, 2012, and 2021.
Shan Masood, Mohammad Haris, Mohammad Wasim Junior, and Shaheen Shah Afridi are back in WC T20 2022 Squad
Along with fast bowlers Mohammad Wasim Junior and Shaheen Shah Afridi, top-order batsman Shan Masood has been selected for the 15-player World Cup team for the first time. At the same time, the three traveling reserves are Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Haris, and Shahnawaz Dahani.
Wasim Junior was added to the team after fully recovering from the side strain he sustained during the ACC T20 Asia Cup, but Shaheen, who is in London receiving treatment for a knee ailment and will likely start bowling again early next month, will join the team in Brisbane on October 15.

“Our squad has the potential to compete well in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022. Since practically the same group of players has been a part of the T20I team following the 2021 World Cup in the UAE, we have shown faith and confidence in them.
“Since November 2021, these guys have played effectively, and as a result, we have won nine out of our past 13 T20Is. Since we have invested in these cricket players, it is only right that they are given a chance to prove themselves at the World Cup, an event for which they have been working hard to get ready.
