Mohsin Khan, the head of the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) Cricket Committee, has admitted that Pakistan are lacking a specialised opening pair going into the World Cup.
Fakhar Zaman and Imam-ul-Haq have been Pakistan’s go-to openers as of late, but Mohsin noted that they have to amass large partnerships during the tournament in order to give the middle order batsmen something to build on.
“In a huge event like the World Cup, Pakistan need to have a specialised and settled opening pair which can give the team a solid start in big-pressure games; and here we are lacking,” he was quoted as saying by Dawn.
Pakistan will kick off their World Cup campaign against the West Indies in Nottingham on May 31.
