Pakistan team is already facing critical time ahead of the World Cup 2015. They have lost the first match on the tour of New Zealand and now Junaid Khan has been confirmed injured.
He will not be a part of the National squad. He was injured during the practice session in the camp before the team left for New Zealand. Bilawal Bhatti will replace him. Moreover the selection of Muhammad Hafeez has also been criticized because his bowling action has not been cleared yet.
Shoaib Malik is said to have been a better candidate as compared to Hafeez and his inclusion in the squad in place of Hafeez has been demanded on several occasions. Andul Razaq is another player who was a candidate for a spot in the team bit rumors are that due to his personal conflict with Coach Waqar Younis, he is denied a spot in the National team for the upcoming mega event.
Fast bowler Umar Gul already is out of the squad while the veteran spinner Saeed Ajmal has also been left out because of his bowling action problems. National team is going to the World Cup 2015 in crisis and it is hard to believe that with such a team, Pakistan has any kind of chance whatsoever to win the World Cup.
