Once the selectors get an update on the players’ fitness, the team for the three-match series against Ireland will be announced.

“Mohammad Rizwan, Azam Khan, and Irfan Khan Niazi have almost regained fitness, while Haris Rauf who has yet to play any international or national event since January is yet to regain fitness though he is busy training these days in Lahore.

However, Almost 25 Pakistani cricketers and 21 officials have gone through biometrics at the US Embassy on Monday.

During their stay at the US Embassy, the team members met US Ambassador to Pakistan Donald Blome and exchanged views on the forthcoming World Cup and its importance for Pakistan and the USA.
