ACB chief selector Noor Malikzai, speaking about the team, said that they had chosen the best players available in the country and were hopeful that the team would do well in the multinational tournament in Australia. In an official statement released by ACB, Noor said:

“The Asian Cup was a very good opportunity for the team to prepare things well for the major world event in Australia. Fortunately, Darwish Rasooli has recovered from injury (broken finger) and we are happy to have him available for the WT20, he has shown good glimpses of him in the Shpageeza Cricket League 2022 held previously and offers an additional batting option for our middle order.

“As Australian conditions offer more support for fast bowlers, we have added Salim Safi, the fast tall right arm to add more drive to our bowling department. In general, we have chosen our best available players for the event and we hope that they will do well and better represent the country in the mega event.”
