“I’ll tell you later,” Babar said.
“Not telling you our Plan B now. But yes, Haris Rauf is not bad. He has a little side strain, but he’s recovering before the World Cup.
“Naseem Shah also… they have a couple of missed matches. I don’t know (how long) the recovery will last, but in my opinion, Naseem Shah also (will also be) in the World Cup later on. But let’s see.”
