Pakistan is getting ready for the ICC World Cup 2023 next month, but there are concerns about the team's situation, including frequent injuries to key players.
Pakistan was eliminated from the Asia Cup after losing to India and Sri Lanka in the Super 4 matches.
Pakistan's captain, Babar Azam, Director Mickey Arthur, Chief Selector Inzamam-ul-Haq, and head coach Grant Bradburn are worried about the players' ongoing fitness problems.
Selectors are now contemplating alternative players for the team, and it's possible that some senior players might be replaced.
Sources suggest that selectors had already formed a squad for the upcoming ICC World Cup 2023 with the input of the management. They had also unofficially communicated to players whether they would be participating in the tournament or not.
However, the situation has changed after Pakistan failed to reach the Asia Cup finals.
Inzamam is also concerned about the team's loss and the injuries to key players, particularly Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah. Naseem is likely to miss some World Cup matches due to a shoulder injury sustained during the Asia Cup.
Additionally, vice-captain Shadab Khan and batter Fakhar Zaman are struggling with their form.
Babar recently attributed the Asia Cup's defeat to the bowlers, stating that the team should have performed better on those pitches.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Zaka Ashraf visited the players to boost their morale, but it seems to have increased their stress.
Head of Integration and Technical Committee Misbah-ul-Haq and Inzamam are planning to meet with local selectors. The chief selector will make changes in consultation with Babar, Arthur, and Bradburn.
Pakistan is yet to announce its squad for the ICC World Cup 2023.
