India vs Pakistan is thought by Saqlain Mushtaq Ahead

Saqlain Mushtaq, the head coach of the Pakistan National Cricket Team, has expressed his complete faith in the right-arm pacer trio of Naseem Shah, Mohammad Hasnain, and Haris Rauf and has cautioned Team India not to underestimate them in the absence of the top pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi.

Shaheen, a 22-year-old left-arm pacer, will miss the Asia Cup 2022 owing to a right knee ligament injury, according to a statement issued by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Saturday, August 20. Shaheen, who famously suffered the injury while fielding during the first Test match in Galle against Sri Lanka, is anticipated to resume playing competitive cricket in October.

Additionally, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) issued a statement on Monday, August 22, announcing that Shaheen would be replaced in the team for the next Asia Cup by right-arm bowler Mohammad Hasnain, 22.

From August 27 to September 11 of 2022, the United Arab Emirates will host the Asia Cup (UAE). On August 28 at the Dubai International Stadium, the Pakistan National Cricket Team and India National Cricket Team will square off in the opening match of the event.

Shaheen used to be in charge of the attack, but these three can turn the tide on a certain day or circumstance, according to Saqlain Mushtaq.

Shaheen used to be the leader of Pakistan’s bowling attack, but according to head coach of the Pakistan National Cricket Team Saqlain Mushtaq, the three of Naseem Shah, Mohammad Hasnain, and Haris Rauf can excel for the Men In Green.

“Over the past few years, these three have done a good job carrying out the requests and plans of the Pakistani team. The team’s abilities are trusted by the captain, me as the head coach, and the entire support staff. Shaheen used to be the attack’s leader, but these three can alter the course of a match and give India a hard time. During a press conference, Mushtaq said.
