Srinagar, July 29: Hitting out at Pakistan’s team selection for England tour, former cricketer, Shoaib Akhtar, Tuesday said it seems there are 22 fast-bowlers in the 20-men squad.

In a discussion on Geo Cricket, Akhtar lashed out at team management, saying he has no clue about what will be the starting XI for Pakistan in the first Test.

“That we don’t know. They have announced a 20-member squad. In that twenty, there are around 22 fast bowlers. Let us see whom they select. Depends on the captain and the management, with which mindset they go in.” He said.

“What they want and how the pitch is? How the management sees the whole scenario. Zero idea what they are going to do. When the team list comes, you will come to know the exact mindset they are going in with. So far as we know right now, nothing.”

Akhtar hasn’t been much happy with the current bunch of people in the management. Even in the past, he took a jibe on them for multiple reasons.
