Pakistan seamer Umar Gul seems to have accepted the fact that he was not included in the list of 23 probables for the World Cup.

Gul has not represented Pakistan since September 2016 and did not even feature in the recent edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

However, he is currently captaining Sindh in the Pakistan Cup, which is a domestic one-day tournament, and has taken five wickets in three matches at an average of 29.20.

Despite not being part of the probables for the World Cup, the 34-year-old admitted that he is pleased to be playing a full season of domestic cricket.

“My name is not in the 23 names announced but Alhamdulillah I am playing a full domestic season, I have good rhythm and [my] fitness is good also,” he was quoted as saying by PakPassion.

Pakistan will kick off their World Cup campaign against the West Indies in Nottingham on May 31.

  1. In my opinion Pakistan cricket team needs seemer bowlers more than 3.like m asif, umar gul,m amir etc.

    • Asif has been in good form, but he’s not being considered for some reason. Umar Gul didn’t play the PSL and maybe there are worries about his consistency. As for Amir, he needs to step it up because five wickets in 14 ODIs is just not good enough.
