Shaheen Shah’s replacement in the national squad for the Asia Cup 2022 is the 22-year-old young fast bowler Muhammad Hasnain.
Shaheen earlier pulled out of the tournament after the doctors recommended a 4-6 weeks rest for a knee injury he picked up during the Test series against Sri Lanka.
The event is scheduled to begin on August 27 and end on September 11 of the following month.
In 18 T20 international games for Pakistan, Mohammad Hasnain has taken 17 wickets so far. The young player is now participating in The Hundred and will travel to Dubai to join the national T20 team.
Asif Ali, Haider Ali, Iftikhar Ahmed, and Usman Qadir, on the other hand, will depart Pakistan on Tuesday morning and join the team in Dubai. They will take the place of Abdullah Shafiq, Imam-ul-Haq, Mohammad Haris, Salman Ali Agha, and Zahid Mehmood in the 16-person squad that was previously announced for the Netherlands tour.
On August 28, Pakistan and India will face off in their opening match of the competition. The match against the qualifier team will come after, and the Super Four phase will start on September 3.
