Nawaz gets nod as Pakistan announce playing XI for Asia Cup opener against Nepal


Pakistan have announced their XI for the Asia Cup opener against Nepal at the Multan Cricket Stadium tomorrow.

Faheem Ashraf was also in consideration, but Babar has decided to trust his fiery trio of Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf to perform the fast bowling duties.
