No big changes in Pakistan team due to pressure from seniors

Despite calls for a major shake-up following a disappointing T20 World Cup campaign, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is likely to stick with the current core group of players. This decision comes ahead of a crucial meeting on Saturday where reports from white-ball head coach Gary Kirsten and senior team manager Wahab Riaz will be discussed.

PCB chairman Mohsin Naqvi had previously hinted at the need for “major surgery” after the team’s early exit from the World Cup. However, sources close to the board now suggest a more cautious approach.

“The reports by Kirsten and Riaz will help the chairman decide the next course of action, but there’s a strong feeling that big changes are unlikely,” a source told PTI. “The pressure to perform is immense, but there’s also a reluctance to upset senior players.”

This decision to prioritize stability over a complete overhaul could raise eyebrows among fans frustrated by the team’s recent performances. However, the PCB may be looking for a period of consolidation before the next World Cup.

Pakistan’s focus will now shift to the upcoming Test series against Bangladesh and England. It remains to be seen if the current squad can recapture their form and silence the critics in the longer format of the game.
