Top players who can play a crucial role for Pakistan in T20 World Cup 2024

From Babar to Amir, let's check the list of players who can turn the fortunes of Pakistan in this T20 World Cup 2024.

Pakistan has always been considered the dark horse in every ICC tournament. Sometimes they perform beyond expectations, but sometimes they struggle due to poor performances and internal conflicts. This duality makes them the most unpredictable cricket team on the international stage.

Amidst all this chaos, we have witnessed a few amazing and consistent performers from Pakistan. T20 World Cup is around the corner, and once again, Pakistan is expected to be one of the favorites. But who can be the star performer for them? Let’s take a look at a few players who might help Pakistan win their second T20 World Cup title.

Babar Azam

Azam has been considered one of the modern cricket greats because of his exceptional batting skills. He again got the captaincy as well. Last year, after the 50-over World Cup in India, the captaincy was suddenly taken away from him. But now, the Pakistan management has again trusted him for this post.

If Pakistan really wants to do well, Azam’s form will be crucial. He bats at the top of the order and provides stability to the team. In 110 T20I matches, he has scored 3698 runs and also has a decent strike rate of 129.12 to date.It will be intresting to see who

Imad Wasim

In the recently held PSL, Imad Wasim’s performance caught a lot of attention, and as a result, he is back in the Pakistani camp. In PSL 2024, Wasim showcased his all-around skills, as he took 12 wickets in 12 games and scored 126 runs with a decent strike rate of 129.

Wasim had announced his retirement from international cricket in 2023, but he came out of retirement, and now there is a strong possibility that he will play in the upcoming 2024 World Cup. He was also included in the Pakistan T20I squad against New Zealand, indicating that Pakistan sees him as a potential all-rounder for the upcoming 20-over World Cup.

Mohammad Amir

Amir has always been a proven performer for the Pakistani team, but due to conflicts with the Pakistani management, he never got a consistent opportunity to play for his country. Like Imad, he is also making a comeback after announcing his retirement, which he did in 2020. The 32-year-old fast bowler has given many amazing performances for the Pakistan team. In 2017, his match-winning performances in the Champions Trophy are still remembered by many. In 51 T20Is, he has picked up 59 wickets with an outstanding bowling economy of 7.02.

With his fiery pace and the ability to chip in runs with the bat, Amir is an asset for any team. However, how he turns things around for Pakistan is going to be crucial.

Naseem Shah

Naseem Shah is another exciting talent who might do wonders for Pakistan in this upcoming T20 World Cup. He got injured during the Asia Cup in 2023, following which he was ruled out of the ICC 50 over the World Cup in 2023.

In 20 T20I matches to date, he has taken 19 wickets with an impressive bowling economy of 7.30. The sample size is extremely small to judge his skills, but in all the matches he has played to date, he has left his mark.

If Naseem gets fit, we might soon see him on the international stage. Pakistan is always known for its fast bowling unit, but considering the current scenario, the team requires more pacers. The inclusion of Naseem in the T20 World Cup 2024 squad could change things for them.
