    Qasim Akram to lead Pakistan in ICC U19 Men’s Cricket World Cup and the U19 Asia Cup

    Lahore, 2 December 2021:

    Central Punjab all-rounder Qasim Akram will lead the 15-player Pakistan U19 squad in the ICC U19 Men’s Cricket World Cup which will be played in January-February 2022 in the West Indies. The Lahore-born Qasim will also captain the team in the U19 Asia Cup that will be played in the UAE later this month.

    The junior selection committee of the Pakistan Cricket Board had invited 21 high-performing cricketers born on or after 1 September 2002 (eligibility criteria) for a training camp that is currently underway in Lahore to prepare the side for the two tournaments, the camp began last week.

    Besides the final 15 for both events, the squad also includes two travelling reserves who will be part of the touring party for both tournaments.

    The squad includes four players who took part in the preceding U19 World Cup that was played in South Africa in January-February 2020, Pakistan finished third in the event. Qasim, openers Abdul Wahid Bangalzai and Mohammad Shehzad and middle-order batter Irfan Khan Niazi were the four players to feature in the South Africa event.

    Following the 2020 event, Qasim was hugely impressive for Central Punjab in all three formats in the 2020-21 domestic season which was his first, Abdul Wahid scored a double-century for Balochistan in the ongoing Quaid-e-Azam Trophy besides impressive batting in the National T20.

    Irfan appeared for Central Punjab in the National T20 and has already earned the reputation of being a clean striker of the ball, Shehzad was also one of the most prolific batters in the 2021-22 U19 one-day and three-day events.

    Besides the quartet, the squad includes promising players like spinners Faisal Akram (left-arm-wrist-spinner), Ali Asfand (left-arm-spinner), Mehran Mumtaz (left-arm-spinner) and Arham Nawab (off-spinner). Faisal represented Southern Punjab in the National T20.

    Abdul Faseeh, Haseebullah, Rizwan Mehmood and Maaz Sadaqat were the standout performers with the bat in the domestic U19 circuit. Pacers Ahmed Khan, Awais Ali and Zeeshan Zameer have also performed admirably besides impressing the selectors and coaches with their potential.

    Pakistan Shaheens and U19 head coach Ijaz Ahmed will lead the support staff on the two tours.

    Chairman Junior Selection Committee Saleem Jaffer: “Selection of U19 squads is always one of the most challenging and difficult tasks due to the available pool of talent. And this selection was no different, but we have tried to pick the best available 17 players who can help Pakistan win the World Cup for the country.

    “The PCB has prepared a robust plan for pathways cricket and I can assure all teenage cricketers who have missed out on selection this time that they will get a chance at some stage down the line.

    “I want to congratulate the 17 players who have made into the squad for the UAE and the West Indies tournaments. I remain confident that this side has the capability and potential to do well in both the upcoming events.”

    Squad (in alphabetical order):

    Qasim Akram (captain, Central Punjab), Abdul Faseeh (Northern), Abdul Wahid Bangalzai (Balochistan),
    Ahmed Khan (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa), Ali Asfand (Central Punjab), Arham Nawab (Central Punjab), Awais Ali (Central Punjab), Faisal Akram (Southern Punjab), Haseebullah (wicketkeeper, Balochistan), Irfan Khan Niazi (Central Punjab), Maaz Sadaqat (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa), Mehran Mumtaz (Northern), Mohammad Shehzad (Southern Punjab), Rizwan Mehmood (Sindh) and Zeeshan Zameer (Sindh)

    Traveling reserves: Ghazi Ghori (wicketkeeper, Sindh), Mohammad Zeeshan (Central Punjab).

    Support staff: Ijaz Ahmed (Head coach), Rao Iftikhar Anjum (Bowling coach), Mohtashim Rasheed (Fielding coach), Mohammad Javed (Strength and Conditioning coach), Waleed Ahmed (Analyst), Hafiz Naeem-ul-Rasool (physiotherapist) and Taimur Azam (Manager).

    Azan Awais missed out of a spot despite scoring most runs in one of the recently concluded under 19 tournaments.
    Also, don’t know why this Irfan Khan Niazi guy keeps getting selected. Never seen the guy doing anything off note. Correct me if I’m wrong.

    These conspiracies are getting a bit too much. Misbah isn't anything so why would he influence this selection.

    Just because someone is a niazi or is from mianwali you think they are cousins of Misbah?

    Let's hope so. We need at least 2 to come through from this cohort to play for PK. RR should aim to have 10 good young batsman to chose from. We have Hurraira, Mubashir,Omair, Ammad(Karachi)and Bangalzai. We need another 5 to develop and hopefully 2 come from this group.

    Second 11 cricket is supposed to be a place for the under 19 graduates. Imagine going back to the same class after graduation. That just doesn’t sound right. And to tell you the truth, he doesn’t even look like an under 19 kid. But that’s beside the point. Can’t care less if he’s overage since age fudging is just a norm. But still, if you are playing second eleven cricket then you have obviously graduated from under 19 level and playing in big leagues. So yes he shouldn’t be playing under 19 cricket.

    That’s not my opinion. Rahul Dravid said it himself. That if you are already playing first class cricket then you shouldn’t be playing under 19 cricket. You shouldn’t be playing two under 19 world cups anyway. You are not going to achieve anything by doing that.

    I think there should be a 2 way pathway from and into 2nd 11 cricket for U19s. The more experience they get they better they will be. Age faking is an issue but that has deep tentacles and that is the PCBs fault, we have to assume that he has a right to be there. For all his faults Ijaz has an eye for talent and until I see these guys, I won't make any judgements.

    From PCB:

    National U-19 squad to leave for West Indies today to participate in ICC Men's U-19 World Cup

    The squad will leave Dubai for Manchester, Bridgetown at 12 noon.

    Abdul Wahid Bangalzai will not travel with the squad due to positive corona test and will isolate in Dubai for ten days which will be overseen by the Emirates Cricket Board.

    Ghazi Ghauri and Mohammad Zeeshan are already with the squad as travel reserves and will be available to the national under-19 squad for the ICC Men's Under-19 World Cup

    Nice bunch of lads. They were on the same flight from Dubai to Manchester as someone I know, so I got to meet the squad when they landed.

    There's a lad in the squad - Mohammad Zeeshan who must be at least 6 foot 4, maybe even more. Huge guy - pace bowler who played recently against UAE U19s.

    For those interested - Rao Iftikhar is the bowling coach with these lads.

    People with much better record are being ignored here. My advice to those who are being ignored is not to lose heart but to focus on their studies, try and move abroad and fulfill their cricketing dreams in other parts of the world. It’s true for every profession in Pakistan and shouldn’t be any different here.

    Pakistan top order shine in win over Canada

    Pakistan put an impress display against Canada as they build up to their Group C opener against Papua New Guinea on Saturday. The men in Green won the toss and put the Canadians into bat in Conaree and quickly reduced them to 31-4. Ethan Gibson offered some resistance with a stubborn 55, but Mihir Patel’s team were eventually bowled out for 164.

    Pakistan’s response started poorly when Haseebullah departed for just 3, but his opening partner Mohammad Shehzad scored 67. He was joined at the crease by Abdul Faseeh whi hit 72 unbeaten, to help his team to an eight-wicket victory.

    Canada start their tournament against UAE on Saturday in St Kitts and Nevis.

    Bangladesh are not the only team looking to their senior men’s side for inspiration, with Pakistan having captured the imagination on the way to the semi-finals of the 2021 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

    And those displays have clearly rubbed off on the younger generation, with captain Qasim Akram saying: “The fighting quality the senior team showed at the T20 World Cup in the UAE was an effort that inspired the entire nation including our players.

    “We want to continue that inspiration for others because we have an example to emulate in this tournament.

    “They showed great passion and it was a big inspiration to see the team do well and gives us motivation.”

    Qasim is appearing in his second ICC U19 Men’s CWC, and like Rakibul, believes that the wickets will suit Pakistan, who are in Group C along with Afghanistan, Papua New Guinea and Zimbabwe.

    He added: “The team so far has adjusted very well to the conditions and the wickets.

    “The pitches are quite similar to those in Karachi, as they offer turn and generally similar to what we see across most of Pakistan.

    “The pitches feel familiar which is helping the team prepare well and I feel we have adapted well to the conditions.”

    Lahore, 16 January 2022: Two-time former champions Pakistan will take on Zimbabwe in the ICC Men’s U19 Cricket World Cup West Indies 2022 opener on Monday at the Diego Martin Sporting Complex in Trinidad and Tobago.

    Pakistan will then meet Afghanistan on Thursday at the Brian Lara Cricket Ground, while their last Group C fixtures will be against Papua New Guinea (PNG) on Saturday at the Queens Park Oval.

    If Pakistan top’s Group C, their Super League quarter-final will be on Friday, 28 January, at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground against the side that finishes second in Group D, which comprise West Indies, Australia, Sri Lanka and Scotland.

    In the scenario of Pakistan finishing second in Group C, their Super League quarter-final will be on Thursday, 27 January, at the Coolidge Cricket Ground against the side that tops Group C, which includes West Indies, Australia, Sri Lanka and Scotland.

    Pakistan is the third most successful side after India and Australia in the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup, which was launched in 1988 before becoming a biennial event in 1998. Pakistan have won titles in 2004 and 2006, finished runners-up thrice in 1988, 2010 and 2014, and achieved third positions in 2000, 2008, 2018 and 2020.

    Apart from dominating the U19 World Cups since its inception, Pakistan have also produced cricketers from this competition who have gone on to make cricket a bigger and stronger sport.

    The 1988 competition in Australia saw the emergence of Aqib Javed, Basit Ali, Inzamam-ul-Haq and Mushatq Ahmed, the last event in South Africa has resulted in the graduation of Haider Ali and Mohammad Wasim Junior to international cricket. Both the players were part of Pakistan’s squad for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021, with Wasim later winning the PCB Emerging Cricketer of 2021 award.

    Some of the other prominent Pakistan internationals to progress from the U19 World Cup in the period between 1998 and 2018 include Abdul Razzaq, Shoaib Malik (both 1998), Faisal Iqbal, Imran Nazir, Mohammad Sami Taufeeq Umar, Yasir Arafat (all 2000), Azhar Ali, Junaid Zia, Umar Gul (all 2002), Abid Ali, Fawad Alam, Wahab Riaz (all 2004), Sarfaraz Ahmed, Imad Wasim (both 2006), Shan Masood, Ahmed Shehzad, Umar Akmal (all 2008), Babar Azam (2010), Imam-ul-Haq, Mohammad Nawaz (both 2012), Shadab Khan (2016) and, Mohammad Musa and Shaheen Shah Afridi (2018).

    Qasim Akram, who featured in the 2020 tournament along with Haider Ali and Mohammad Wasim Junior, will be making his second appearance when he will captain Pakistan’s future stars in the 2022 edition.

    “The ICC U19 Men’s Cricket World Cup is the biggest and most competitive tournament we get to play at this level. This tournament provides us a reality check of where we stand as compared to cricketers from other nations and what we need to do to in future to enhance our skills so that we can compete strongly at the highest level.

    “This tournament also helps in building relationships with cricketers from other countries and this bonding stays with us for the rest of our careers. I know a number of players who played with me in the 2020 U19 World Cup and I feel happy when they perform. Of course, they also motivate me to improve my skills and play alongside them in the international arena.

    “We come into this tournament oozing with confidence. We had a long pre-tour preparation camps in Karachi and Lahore and then had some good games in the UAE before one bad day in the office ruined our chances of winning the Asia Cup. We have won both the warm-up matches and have practiced hard in the West Indies, and feel we are fully prepared and ready to enter the tournament.

    “We take a lot of motivation from our men’s squad. They had a great 2021, which has created a feel good factor, which we can capitalise on by winning the tournament and ending the 16-year title drought.

    “I have no doubts we are one of the favourites and have players who can help us win the first trophy of this decade. All we need to do is to play our natural game, don’t be overawed by the occasion and continue to focus and believe in our abilities.”

    Squad - Qasim Akram (captain, Central Punjab), Abdul Faseeh (Northern), Abbas Ali (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa), Ahmed Khan (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa), Ali Asfand (Central Punjab), Arham Nawab (Central Punjab), Awais Ali (Central Punjab), Faisal Akram (Southern Punjab), Haseebullah (wicketkeeper, Balochistan), Irfan Khan Niazi (Central Punjab), Maaz Sadaqat (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa), Mehran Mumtaz (Northern), Mohammad Shehzad (Southern Punjab), Rizwan Mehmood (Sindh) and Zeeshan Zameer (Sindh)

    Traveling reserves: Ghazi Ghori (wicketkeeper, Sindh), Mohammad Zeeshan (Central Punjab).

    Pakistan fixtures:

    17 Jan - v Zimbabwe - Diego Martin Sporting Complex.

    20 Jan - v Afghanistan - Brian Lara Cricket Ground.

    22 Jan - v PNG - Queens Park Oval.

    I'd like to see Shehzad given more of a chance with the ball in upcoming matches.

    One thing that has really impressed me about this group so far is the standard of fielding. All look pretty athletic, agile and enjoying their fielding.
