No space for Mohammad Amir in Babar Azam’s XI against USA, Imad Wasim injured

The men in green (Pakistan) are all set to play their first game against co-host USA. Will we see any twists in their playing XI? It seems like we will.

The men in green, Pakistan, are gearing up to play their first T20 World Cup 2024 game against the co-host, the United States of America. Pakistan has always been considered the top contender, especially due to the unpredictable feature in their cricket, as they can beat any team on their day.

However, it’s a fact that after their 2009 T20 World Cup win, they haven’t experienced much success in the tournament, and they are now aiming for their second T20 World Cup silverware. Since their opening game is of utmost importance, as Pakistan will aim to kick off the campaign with a win, let’s take a look at the predicted XI for Pakistan and the combinations they can utilize in the encounter against the USA.

No Mohammad Amir in Pakistan XI

Looking at the predicted XI, it seems there will be no space for veteran Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir. With the Pakistan team already filled with pacers and considering the nature of the Grand Prairie Stadium, which typically favors batters, Pakistan will likely aim to bolster their batting depth against USA. If this holds true, Pakistan will have Amir warming the bench in their opening match.
