Why is Fakhar Zaman not playing today’s ODI World Cup 2023 match?

Fakhar Zaman‘s recent struggle with form has been concern for PAK. His performances have not been up to the desired standard, and this dip in form has prompted the team management to make a strategic decision in favor of Abdullah Shafique.

Abdullah Shafique, the replacement for Fakhar Zaman, made a compelling case for his inclusion by showcasing an outstanding display of skill and resilience. In the last match against Sri Lanka, Shafique exhibited remarkable form, scoring a century. His notable performance has earned him the opportunity to retain his place in the lineup for this crucial match.

Team selection in cricket involves evaluating the current form and performances of players, and the decision to replace Fakhar Zaman with Abdullah Shafique is a testament to the team’s commitment to fielding the best possible combination that maximizes their chances of success. It’s a strategic move aimed at enhancing the team’s batting strength and overall performance.
