Pakistan has got a big blow
Let us tell you that just before the Asia Cup, the Pakistan team has suffered a major setback. Pakistan’s star fast bowler Shaheen Afridi is injured and will not take part in the Asia Cup. Due to the exclusion of Shaheen Afridi, the bowling attack of the Pakistan team does not look that strong.
The Pakistan Cricket Board has selected Mohammad Hasnain in the team in place of Shaheen Afridi. Hasnain remains in the discussion because of his speed. However, questions continue to arise regarding his action. Not only this, Hasnain has not been able to impress so much in international cricket so far.
