Why did Shaheen, Shadab not bowl in New Zealand warm-up match?

Two main Pakistan bowlers Shaheen Shah Afridi and Shadab Khan didn’t bowl on Friday in the first warm-up match of the ICC World Cup 2023 against New Zealand which Green Shirts lost by five wickets despite setting a huge target of 346.

Cricket fans and experts were amazed to see that these two were missing in action and raised concerns over it.

Geo News has learnt the reason why Shaheen and Shadab didn’t bowl as the New Zealand batters chased the 300-plus target in the 44th over.

According to sources, the duo wasn’t given the opportunity during the match “under a strategy” as the team management wanted to give more chances of match practice to other bowlers.

“The management has planned to test all the 15 members of the squad during the two warm-up matches differently,” the sources said.

It has been decided to “acclimatise” ahead of the tournament.
