Pakistan left-arm seamer Junaid Khan was over the moon to be part of the 15-man squad selected for the World Cup, which begins in England and Wales next month.

Junaid has been in solid form as of late as he took eight wickets in seven matches for the Multan Sultans in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) at an average of 28.50.

He followed that up with four wickets in three matches at an average of 44.50 during the five-match ODI series against Australia in the United Arab Emirates.

“Alhamdulillah [grateful] to Allah to be part of the World Cup squad,” Junaid tweeted. “Thank you to all those who supported and prayed for me. Always keep me in your prayers. Inshallah hoping to bring the trophy home.”

Pakistan are allowed to make changes to their squad without permission from the International Cricket Council (ICC) until May 23.

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