Ahmad Shahzad has voiced his opinion on the necessary tweaks needed in the Pakistan lineup for the crucial third and decisive T20I against Ireland in Dublin today.

With the series tied at 1-1, today’s match holds the key to clinching the trophy, and Shahzad believes that a strategic change in the bowling department could tilt the scales in Pakistan’s favour.

Speaking to a local news channel, Shahzad highlighted the need for improved bowling performance, emphasizing the pivotal role bowlers play in shaping a team’s success.

“If you want to win any tournament, it is important that the bowlers step up,” Shahzad asserted, expressing his concern over the flat performance of the Pakistani bowlers thus far in the series.


In his recommendation for a lineup adjustment, Ahmad Shahzad advocated for the inclusion of mystery spinner Abrar Ahmed, citing the need for a fresh approach to bolster the bowling attack.

“Luckily, we still have a few matches before the World Cup to sort out our bowling issues. The bowlers have looked flat to me and maybe we should consider including Abrar Ahmed in the lineup,” Shahzad suggested.

With three T20Is under his belt for Pakistan, Abrar has shown promise, particularly during his standout performances in PSL 9, where he clinched 16 wickets in 10 games for Quetta Gladiators.


Meanwhile, Shahzad also emphasized the importance of embracing modern-day cricketing trends to stay competitive on the international stage.

“The cricketing world is evolving, and Pakistan should do the same if they want to compete with the top teams,” Shahzad remarked, advocating for an attacking mindset in batting strategies.

Drawing from Pakistan’s resilient performance in the second T20I against Ireland, Shahzad applauded the team’s aggressive approach, highlighting the diminishing role of traditional innings anchoring in modern T20 cricket.

“When you are at the crease, you should play an impactful innings or let someone else come in,” Shahzad emphasized, underscoring the need for dynamic and impactful batting performances.
