After the injury of Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah, the Pakistan cricket team management called Shahnawaz Dhani and Zaman Khan as backups. The Pakistan Cricket Board has said that considering the fitness of the players for the World Cup, Dhani and Zaman have been called. If Shah and Rauf will not be part of the tournament then Dhani and Khan will replace them. The two have been called up after Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah picked up niggles in the match against India. This is only a precautionary measure keeping in mind the fitness and well-being of the players ahead of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup next month. Haris and Naseem will continue to remain under the observation of the team’s medical panel. The team management will only request replacement from the ACC technical committee if Naseem or Haris are ruled out for the next seven days.
