T20 World Cup: There may be a change in Pakistan’s team for the T20 World Cup to be played next month. Former Pakistan captain Mohammad Hafeez may be out of the T20 World Cup squad due to dengue. It is being claimed in the reports that the PCB can replace two players in the already announced team.
Mohammad Hafeez has been ruled out of the National T20 Cricket Championship due to dengue. For this reason, playing Hafeez in the T20 World Cup is doubtful. Hafeez, who will turn 41 next month, is undergoing treatment at his home in Lahore.
Hafeez’s chances of being fit are very less till the World Cup, which is going to start from October 17. A local doctor said, “Hafeez’s fitness depends on how severe his infection is. This disease causes a lot of weakness and it takes a month for platelets to return to normal.
Malik or Sarfaraz may get a chance
A source in the Pakistan Cricket Board said that the board’s medical panel is in touch with Hafeez and is monitoring his recovery and treatment. The Pakistan Cricket Board has time till October 10 to make changes in the team.
A Pakistani TV channel has claimed that the PCB is considering the names of Shoaib Malik and Sarfaraz Ahmed as replacements for Hafeez. Apart from this, the PCB is also not happy with the performance of some players in the National Cup and is considering making two or three changes in the team.
