The management have dropped Haris Sohail, Fakhar Zaman and Junaid Khan for the big battle.
Greenshirts’ batting line order will be strengthened by openers Ahmed Shehzad and Azhar Ali while Babar Azam will come at number 3.
The middle and lower middle order will feature all-rounders Muhammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik, and then skipper/wicket-keeper Sarfraz Ahmed will come out to bat as the finisher.
Pakistan cricket team has picked pacers Wahab Riaz and Hasan Ali for bowling. All-rounder Imad Wasim will also demonstrate his bowling skills. It will be interesting to see how captain Sarfraz Ahmed switches between fast-bowlers and spinners in the overcast conditions at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground.
Sarfraz Ahmed said while talking to a press conference in Birmingham, the team is under no pressure and they will try to get out rival skipper Virat Kohli as soon as possible.
He assured the Pakistan team is fully prepared for the mega-event.
