Pakistan’s 15-member squad making this year’s Asia Cup will be a treat. From openers to fast bowlers, players have earned a good reputation because of their hard work and talent.

As the Asia Cup 2023 draws near, cricket fans worldwide keep an eye on the calendar. Pakistan’s 15-member team is all that Pakistani fans have been concentrating on and hoping for. Who will make up Pakistan’s squad is the subject of considerable discussion among everyone in the country.

To spice up the excitement of Pakistani supporters, let’s discuss the details of the squad participating in the Asia Cup this year.

Pakistan’s 15-Member Probable Squad- explained with Facts and Figures

According to the writer’s opinion and based on the players’ recent performances, the following players can make it to the final list of Pakistan’s Asia Cup 2023 squad

Top Order 

The likelihood is that Pakistan will start with the opening pair of Fakhar Zaman and Imam-ul-Haq in the Asia Cup 2023. Both players displayed excellent performance throughout the previous series against New Zealand. Imam has participated in 13 games and scored 696 runs with an average of 58, while Fakhar Zaman has played 17 innings with an average of 51.4 in 2023.   

Shan Masood, who will serve as the team’s backup opening batsman, has also recently improved his methods. Babar Azam, the captain of the Pakistan cricket team, is one down batsman strengthening the top order of the Pakistan team. He owns a majestic average of 59.2, grabbing the top position in the ICC ODI rankings for men. 

Middle Order Batters

Abdullah Shafiq, Mohammad Rizwan, and Iftikhar Ahmad are the front-runners for middle-order batting. In recent years, Mohammad Rizwan has been one of the significant figures. He and Babar have been referred to as the Pakistan team’s backbone. Iftikhar Ahmad, affectionately known as “iftimania” by spectators for his amazing match-winning and aggressive batting exploits, is an obvious addition to Pakistan’s 15-member squad. 

Due to his exceptional performances over the past few years, Abdullah Shafiq, one of the team’s emerging players, will likely earn a spot on the roster.

Wicket Keepers

For the team, Mohammad Rizwan will serve as the primary wicketkeeper. Mohammad Haris, who recently served as the Pakistani team’s captain in this year’s emerging Asia Cup tournament for men and helped Pakistan win the title of Asian champions, will be the backup wicketkeeper.


Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, and Usama Mir are the most excellent all-around possibilities and likely squad members. The team has routinely included Shadab Khan and Mohammad Nawaz for a few years. If selected for the Pakistani team, these all-rounders will benefit from playing on Sri Lankan fields.  

Fast Bowlers

The most probable options for fast bowlers are Mohammad Wasim, Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf, and Shaheen Afridi. Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf’s outstanding bowling abilities have assisted Pakistan in obtaining victories. Even though they lacked sufficient experience, Naseem Shah and Mohammad Waseem repeatedly demonstrated their abilities in crucial moments.

The squad will soon be revealed, and these guesses might make it to the official announcements. However, there is a possibility that Pakistan’s recent success in the emerging Asia Cup may influence the chief selector’s choice. No matter how the final list turns out, we will be determined to win this year.
