ENG vs PAK: Pakistan Released Star Pacer From Squad Ahead of 1st T20I, Here is the Full Updated Pakistan Squad against England

ENG vs PAK T20I Series: Just hours before the first T20I, Pakistan have decided to release star pacer and all-rounder Hasan Ali from the squad for the four-match T20I series against England.

As per the Pakistan Cricket Board Officials, the right-arm medium pacer Hasan Ali was added to the squad as a backup option for Haris Rauf, and as of now, they have a fully fit and ready to kill Haris Rauf so they are releasing Hasan Ali from the National Squad.

It’s a rare move for the board to release a fully fit player from the squad, yet that’s precisely what happened with Hasan Ali. This decision underscores that the PCB is not considering him for the T20 World Cup squad. Notably, Pakistan is the last team to announce their World Cup squad, expected to be revealed after a few matches in the current T20I series.

In a twist, Hasan Ali received a surprise recall to Pakistan’s T20I setup ahead of their recent series against Ireland. His latest outing was in the third T20I, where he bowled three overs and leaked 42 runs without taking a wicket.


The Pakistan team management has opted to let Hasan Ali continue his county cricket commitments with Warwickshire. His fellow countryman, Aamer Jamal, also played for Warwickshire but was dropped after taking only one wicket in his first two appearances and missing out in their recent defeat against Essex.

Warwickshire was caught off guard by Hasan’s international recall, but he’s set to rejoin their squad for the County Championship match against Lancashire at Emirates Old Trafford starting Friday. Hasan is also slated to participate in the T20 Blast, commencing next week, and will remain with the club until the end of July.
