Pakistan is one of the qualified participating nation for the champions trophy 2017. Pakistan team already announced their squad for the champions trophy. Sarfraz Ahmed will be leading the young pakistan side in the CT 2017 50 over tournament.
One of the Main Question in all the pakistani fans as Can Pakistan Team Miss their two legend players of Misbah-ul-Haq and younis Khan in this Champions Trophy as they retire from the international cricket couple days ago ? Then majority of fans and pakistan management also says yes as both are legend players of the nation.
Younis Khan who retire from the test cricket on just few time ago against the west indies series. They have a very impressive test career as Younis Khan is the only pakistan player to score 10000+ test run & also 34 hundred. In their test career he scored six double hundreds which is joint in most by a pakistan player along with javed Miandad. He is the only player who scored test hundred in the all 11 countries.
So in the absence of this duo legend former pakistani players team have mostly depend on thier young talent along with senior players of Hafeez, Umar Akmal & Shoaib Malik in the batting department while in bowling Mohammad Amir & Junaid Khan are the key players. We seen that Azhar Ali & Sarfraz ahmed are in good form and hope they can give good result in the champions trophy.
