The ICC ODI World Cup 2023 is on the horizon, set to begin in India in just a few days. Teams around the globe are gearing up for the tournament, with warm-up matches scheduled to commence on September 29, allowing players to acclimatize to Indian conditions. As anticipation builds, various teams have started revealing their squads for the upcoming mega event.

Pakistan announces World Cup 2023 squad with Hasan Ali inclusion

The Pakistan cricket team have unveiled its squad for the upcoming global showpiece event, sparking both anticipation and surprise among fans and pundits. The team’s management and selectors have decided to make a significant change by including experienced bowler Hasan Ali in place of the injured Naseem Shah. This decision has raised eyebrows and ignited discussions among the cricket fans.

A shift in strategy

Notably, Pakistan had a challenging run in the Asia Cup 2023, prompting the selection committee to reevaluate its strategy and player lineup. Naseem’s shoulder injury during the Asia Cup played a pivotal role in the decision to bring Hasan back into the fold. While Hasan did not feature in the continental cup, his inclusion is viewed as a move towards leveraging his experience in high-pressure ICC events.

Hasan Ali’s recent ODI absence

Hasan’s last appearance in a One Day International (ODI) game for Pakistan dates back to June 2022. The fixture was held in Multan, where Pakistan faced the West Indies. Since that encounter, the 29-year-old has not represented the national team in the 50-over format. This extended hiatus from ODI cricket has raised questions about his readiness and form as he returns to the international arena on the grand stage of the quadrennial event.

Fans’ reactions and memes on Hasan Ali’s inclusion

The decision to include Hasan in place of Naseem has generated a mixed response among cricket enthusiasts and fans on social media. Some have questioned the move, considering the Pakistani speedster absence from recent ODI matches. This decision has even led to the creation of humorous memes as fans express their opinions through creative and often satirical means.
