Pakistan have not quite hit the panic button full-on, but in adding Wahab Riaz to their World Cup squad two years after his last ODI and a year after Mickey Arthur had seemingly ended Wahab’s career, they have signalled growing alarm at the steep decline in their bowling performances. On Monday, chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq announced Wahab’s surprise return, as well as the slightly less surprising additions of Mohammad Amir and Asif Ali to Pakistan’s 15-man squad for the World Cup. Junaid Khan, Faheem Ashraf and Abid Ali are the players culled from the provisional squad announced a month ago.

Squad: Sarfaraz Ahmed (capt & wk), Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam, Haris Sohail, Asif Ali, Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Hafeez, Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Hasnain
