Sohaib Maqsood’s chances of retaining his place in the T20 World Cup squad have been dealt a blow as sources said on Friday that the middle-order batsmen were suffering from back pain.
Sources say Maqsood will likely be replaced by offensive batsmen consider Haider Ali.
Meanwhile, chief selector Muhammad Waseem on Thursday had important meetings with former spinner Saqlain Mushtaq, other coaches and captains Babar Azam and Shadab Khan.
The day before, it was reported that at least one or two changes to the T20 World Cup squad could not be ruled out.
