Pakistan In ICC World Twenty20 2009

Pakistan are the runner-up in the T20 World Cup 2007 held on South Africa. No one can forget the final between India and Pakistan where Pakistan had to come second by 5 runs. This year, the second World Twenty20 is going to be held on England. Pakistan are all set for the tournament that starts 5th June. The new captain Younus Khan will be leading his team with plenty of young legs and new appearances with useful experience.

Pakistan Squad for T20 World Cup 2009:
Younis Khan (c), Misbah-ul-haq, Kamran Akmal (wk), Shoaib Mallik, Shahid Afridi, Salman Butt, Ahmed Shehzad, Sohail Tanvir, Yasir Arafat, Umar Gul, Iftikar Anzum, Fawad Alam, Mohammad Aamir, Shahzaib Hasan, Saeed Ajmal

New Faces:
Brilliant looking team in the paper. Shaoib Akhtar was on the 1st squad but he was withdrawn due to Injury and Rao Iftikar has got chance. Some new young legs on the team like Ahmed Sehzad, Mohammad Aamir and Shahzaib Hasan has been included on the squad. Shehzad got the chance in the last series against the Australia in UAE. Young ma had shown his capabilities on UAE and has to perform well this time also for his great future in Pakistan team. Shehzad act as the opening batsman on the team and seemed to be perfect for this sort of short verson games.

Shahzaib Hasan, 19 years is another young attacking wicketkeeper batsman for the Pakistan team. He has just debut his first class career in late 2008 and played on 4 Twenty20 matches. Interesting to see how this young rookie perform in the big platform as he is yet to debut in International level. Another 17 years old Mohammad Aamir is placed as the Fast Medium bowler in the squad. Young in age has debut the 1st class in last Nov and already taken 57 wickets from 10 matches. The young fellow has briliant averages in 5 T20s played with 8 wickets.

Fawad Alam, the name might have been in Pakistan squad since more than few years but hasn't got the consistent place in the playing 11 for Pakistan. The 23 years all-rounder is superb in every expect of the field from batting to bowling and fielding.

Players to watch:
Those young and new faces are always in the list for players to watch. Apart from this the team looks very good. Captain of the team is the one who is always watched at the the first. Younis Khan is captaining the side from few months only and hadn't had many matches. Captaining the team in such a big event is very hard.

Umar Gul and Sohail Tanvir were the bowlers who performed exceptional in the South Africa in 2007. Shahid Afridi was the ma of the series for his great all-round performance to make his team runner-up in that event.
