ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: Pakistan announce the 15-man squad; no place for Mohammad Amir

Chairman selection committee of the Pakistan Cricket Board Inzamam-ul-Haq announced the squad at a press conference here on Thursday.

Two for England ODIs: Mohammad Amir and Asif Ali.

On the other hand, it has been learnt that the list of the Pakistan team for the World Cup and England series has nearly been finalized, and PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani will announce the squad in the evening.

Pacer Mohammad Amir, the hero of Pakistan's previous triumph in an ICC tournament, will not play the World Cup in England as things stand.

Hasnain stole the spotlight during the Pakistan Super League (PSL), where he claimed 12 wickets in seven games for the Quetta Gladiators at an average of 17.58.

All World Cup-bound players will take part in further training sessions and attend open media sessions at the Gaddafi Stadium on April 20 and 21.

Abid Ali, who scored a century on debut against Australia recently, has been picked as the third opener, backing up Fakhar Zaman and Imam-Ul-Haq.

All-rounder Muhammad Hafeez's availability in the squad is subjected to his fitness, said the chief selector. Another pacer who might consider himself unlucky is Usman Shinwari, who has impressed in ODIs and was arguably the team's best bowler against Australia.

Overall, 11 of the 15 players featured in the Champions Trophy in England in 2017.

"We are hopeful and confident that Pakistan will give a good account of itself in the World Cup", Inzamam said. Supported by the flair, skill, talent and killing-instinct, this side has the capability and potential to rise to the occasion and produce strong performances. Sarfaraz is a proven-performer with the bat who has played a number of crucial knocks for Pakistan and his presence further strengthens the middle-order.

Junaid Khan, Muhammad Hasnain, Shaheen Shah Afridi and Hassan Ali are expected to lead the Pakistani pace attack.

Pakistan begin their campaign against Windies on May 31 in Nottingham. Pakistan's 15-member squad for the World Cup: Sarfaraz Ahmed (wk, c), Abid Ali, Babar Azam, Faheem Ashraf, Fakhar Zaman, Haris Sohail, Hasan Ali, Imad Wasim, Imam-ul-Haq, Junaid Khan, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Hasnain, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Shoaib Malik.
