A number of sides have left it until the last minute to announce their squads for the upcoming World Twenty20 (the final deadline is May 5), but Pakistan’s has grabbed a couple of headlines for the inclusion of relative unknowns Shahzaib Hasan (scorer of 607 runs in ten matches for Karachi in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy) and Mohammad Aamer (who has taken 56 first-class wickets in ten matches for Rawalpindi this season).

The rest of the 15 is as follows: Younis Khan (the captain), Salman Butt, Ahmed Shehzad, Shoaib Malik, Misbah-ul-Haq, Shahid Afridi, Kamran Akmal, Fawad Alam, Shoaib Akhtar (who may be lucky to be included given continuing doubts over his fitness), Sohail Tanvir, Umar Gul, Yasir Arafat and Saeed Ajmal.

Today was all about the minnows. The UAE took on Bangladesh, whilst Hong Kong were up against Pakistan.

The results were never really in doubt, but there were at least some creditable performances. Not least of these was from Hong Kong’s young left-arm spinner Nadeem Ahmed, who took 4-51, and (as has been mentioned elsewhere) those wickets weren’t exactly tail-enders.

The UAE shipped 300 against Bangladesh, but Zahid Shah only went for 49 of them, and took 3 wickets for his trouble. Mohammad Ashraful made an unbeaten ton for Bangladesh, whilst Khurram Khan led the resistance for the UAE, making 78 from 81 balls.

You can see highlights of this remarkable feat (via youtube) here.
