Pakistan picked their 15-member squad for the ICC World Cup 2015 today. There were no major surprises except for Fawad Alam, as the likes of Misbah-ul-Haq, Shahid Afridi, and Younis Khan lend the side some much-needed experience, while the younger players like Sarfraz Ahmed, Ahmed Shehzad, Junaid Khan, and Haris Sohail have the talent to do well.
Paceman Sohail Khan was a surprise inclusion after he took ten wickets in three games in domestic matches in Karachi. Also surprisingly, Fawad Alam who many thought would make a place for himself was excluded from the team. Other noted exclusions are Shoaib Malik and Kamran Akmal.
