The left-arm fast bowler Wahab Riaz has been called up for the World Cup assignment and will be a part of the 15-men squad of Pakistan for the mega event.
The inclusion of Wahab in the World Cup squad raised many eyebrows but fast bowler is hopeful to make an impact despite the odds circulating around him.
Before leaving for England, Wahab attended a press and expressed feelings about his fulfilled dream.
“I had a dream a few days ago that chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq was telling me to back pack my bags and head to England as the team needs me and I am doing exactly that,” told Wahab in the press conference organized in Lahore.
“Since the day I was dropped from the team, I was working hard to make a comeback, I worked on my fitness and kept myself ready for the event,” told Wahab.
Wahab Riaz didn’t have a very remarkable outing in England last year and faced a horrendous experience in one of the games last year when he conceded 110 runs in his quota of 10 overs.
“I am under pressure, but I will try to give my best.”
Wahab will be looking to remove the dark spots from his cricketing resume at perhaps the most significant point of his career.
