Wasim Akram Waqar Younis Playing XI

The disappointing performance against England and losing the series left everyone speechless. Though the team has left for the Trio-Series in New Zealand and T20 World Cup still there might be no change in the squad.

Pakistan Cricket Board didn’t release any comment on their selection, the players who joined the squad remained inconsistent and that’s what everyone witnessed in the series against England.
