Misbah Ul Haq, the head of the Cricket Technical Committee (CTC) in Pakistan, stated that both he and Mohammed Hafeez were not involved in the selection of the Pakistan squad for the ICC World Cup 2023, with captain Babar Azam and chief selector Inzamam Ul Haq taking charge of the selection.
Misbah Ul Haq further emphasized that whatever happens in the World Cup, only Babar Azam and chief selector Inzamam Ul Haq will be held responsible for it.
The Pakistan cricket team, led by Babar Azam, has arrived in India after a seven-year hiatus for the ICC World Cup 2023, and they were warmly welcomed by Indian fans at Hyderabad airport.
The Pakistan team suffered a five-wicket defeat in their first warm-up match against the Netherlands. They will now face Australia in their second and final warm-up match on October 3 at Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium, Hyderabad.
