Team Pakistan – Worldcup 2007

According to sources of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), selection committee has finalized the squad, which included five batsmen, three all rounder, one wicketkeeper and six bowlers.The world cup team includes Imran Nazir, Muhammad Hafeez, Inzamamul Haq, Younis Khan, Muhammad Yousuf, Kamran Akmal, Shoaib Malik, Shahid Afiridi, Abdul Razzaq, Shoaib Akhter, Muhammad Asif, Rana Naveedul Hasan, Umer Gul, Rao Iftikhar and Danish Kaneria whereas Muhammad Sami and Shahid Nazir would be stand-by players, sources added.

  1. Imran Nazir
  2. Muhammad Hafeez
  3. Inzamamul Haq
  4. Younis Khan
  5. Muhammad Yousuf
  6. Kamran Akmal
  7. Shoaib Malik
  8. Shahid Afiridi
  9. Abdul Razzaq
  10. Shoaib Akhter
  11. Muhammad Asif
  12. Rana Naveedul Hasan
  13. Umer Gul
  14. Rao Iftikhar
  15. Danish Kaneria

I guess the selectors have picked the best possible combination atleast on papers available to them.

 Arguablly, instead of Danish Kaneria – I guess Left Arm Spinner Abdur Rehman would have been a better choice.

In wicket-keeping department I am sure Zulqarnain Haider is a much better wicket keeper –

Shabbir Ahmed should have been picked instead of Rao Iftikhar –

Muhammad Hafeez’s place in the side is also a question mark, Azhar Mehmood might have been a better choice?

    This is a good team. It would be nice to see Pakistan show its true grit by being a contender.

    I wonder what (http://onlybombay . blogspot . com/2007/02/cricket-betting-in-mumbai . html )bookies in Mumbai are giving odds to the team.

    Good luck.

    rightly said zainab – but the sad demise of Bob has stopped me to write anything in this regard for the time being – I had intentions to utter something before I heard the news which shocked me mentally, that’s all for the time being – may be sometime in future.
