The interesting thing is that they have taken help from their spiritual advisors to choose their preferred jersey numbers for the biggest cricketing event taking place in February.
Middle-order batsman, Umar Akmal, has asked for number 3 to replace 96 on his shirt after consulting with his ‘Pir’. According to the report, Umar was not happy with his poor form. In order to change his luck, he has asked for this change.
Haris Sohail is one of the newcomers to have chosen 89 instead of 80 which he wore in the recently concluded series against New Zealand. Other newcomers who will new numbers on their jerseys are Wahab Riaz 47, Ehsan Adil 91, and Yasir Shah 86.
