Haris has led Pakistan in five ODIs & nine T20Is but couldn’t leave a mark during his stint as a captain. Haris will now aim to turn things in his favor by leading the Pakistani A team to a glorious win in the emerging Asia Cup 2023. He was also a part of ODI & T20I teams that faced New Zealand at home in the April-May window.
Another swashbuckling player who has been named in Pakistan’s A team is Shahnawaz Dahani. He is one of the emerging sensations in Pakistan’s Domestic circle & is creating a place for himself in the National setup. So far Shahnawaz has played two ODIs & 11 T20Is for Pakistan.
Pakistan A will face India A on July 16 in ACC Emerging Asia Cup 2023
