‘’ We don’t have any issues as we have match winners, we have those players who can win matches single-handedly on their own, the likes of Babar Azam, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Fakhar Zaman, and we all have seen Imam playing great knocks as well. Pakistan has all the resources and it’s now just about executing the plans and handling the pressure of the World Cup games ‘’, he further added.

The four names mentioned by Waqar Younis for the World Cup include Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman, Imam Ul Haq, and Shaheen Shah Afridi are also the top-ranked players of the Pakistan team in the ODI rankings as well.

Babar Azam has been ranked as the #1 ODI batsman since 2021 and is by far the best batter in ODI cricket at the moment, followed by Imam Ul Haq, and Fakhar Zaman – both are in the top 10 ODI rankings as well for the Pakistan team. The left-arm pacer, Shaheen Shah Afridi is also Pakistan’s highest-ranked ODI pacer, who features in the top 10 ODI bowling rankings.

There are definitely stars in the Pakistan team who are the best in their business and as Waqar Younis said, all they need is to put their skills together and absorb the pressure and there is a huge chance they will do well in the World Cup 2023.
