Will Naseem Shah Miss The First Few Matches Of World Cup 2023?

Star Pakistani fast bowler, Naseem Shah, faces uncertainty as he may miss the early matches of the highly anticipated 2023 ODI World Cup, scheduled to begin on October 5 in India.

Babar Azam, the team’s captain, addressed concerns surrounding the injuries to Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf, expressing hope that the young 20-year-old pacer, Naseem Shah, could potentially return later in the tournament. However, the exact timeline for his recovery remains uncertain, keeping fans and the team in suspense.

Azam also conveyed optimism about Haris Rauf’s prospects, as the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has yet to confirm Shahnawaz Dahani as his replacement in the Asia Cup squad. Babar Azam hinted at a secret “Plan B” but indicated that Haris Rauf’s recovery from a side strain is progressing positively, offering hope for his participation in the World Cup.

These injuries came as a significant setback for the Pakistani team during the rain-affected match against India in the Super 4s stage of the Asia Cup, held at R. Premadasa Stadium. The Pakistani side faced a thrilling and unfortunate two-wicket defeat against Sri Lanka, further highlighting the impact of these injuries on the team’s performance and World Cup preparations.
