Spinner Yasir Shah has revealed that he is determined to be part of Pakistan’s squad for the World Cup next year.
Yasir, who has just returned from a hip injury, last played ODI cricket in July.
In addition to this, Shadab Khan has been picked as Pakistan’s go-to spinner in the 50-over format.
Despite only having played 19 ODIs for Pakistan thus far, the 32-year-old made it clear that he is not giving up on his hopes of making the cut for the World Cup squad.
“ODI cricket is something I take seriously and is one format for which I would like to make a comeback for Pakistan in the future,” he was quoted as saying by Sky Sports. “I have been participating in one-day games in domestic cricket, with the intention of proving my capabilities in this form of cricket so that I can make a comeback and possibly put myself in contention for a spot in Pakistan’s 2019 World Cup squad.”
