Kya select kiya hai, Jab chief selector average hoga, unke decision bhi average honge: Shoaib Akhtar on Pakistan T20 World Cup squad

Srinagar: Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar has lashed out at Pakistan cricket chief selector for selecting an average team for the T20 World Cup 2022.

PCB on Thursday announced 15 member squad for the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia.

Speaking on his YouTube channel on Friday, Akhtar said that Pakistan had one issue to solve – middle order batting- but instead took an array of poor calls before putting forth a disappointing squad for the World Cup which begins in October.

“Pakistan Cricket Board ne kya select kiya he team. Problem middle order ka that but unhone kaha ki consistency ke saath hum aisa decision karenge jo aapko bara pasand ayeaga, matlab humlog aisa bura decision lenge ki middle order change hi nehi karenge. Fakhar Zaman, I have told this a million times before, give him those six overs. Australia me ball usse suit karega but Babar Azam ko upr hi rakhna,” he said.

“Jab chief selector average hoga unke decision bhi average honge. Saqlain(Mushtaq) last played cricket in 2002, I don’t want to say this as he is my friend, but I don’ think he has any idea about T20 cricket. I don’t think this is your forte. Meanwhile Mohammad Yousuf is not even there is the team. Had he been there, how could our batting not perform? Yousuf is an asset in the dressing room, but I don’t know how much say he has in this team. Iftikhar Ahmed is Misbah part two. Mashallah, we had Rizwan and now he has Iftikhar for company. With this team, we might get knocked out in the first round itself. I am really scared as our batting has no depth. Our captain is also not cut out for this format as he always looks for classic cover drives. He wants to look classic.”
