CricketSunil Gavaskar slams Babar & Co for leaving out Hardik Pandya like player out of Playing-XI against India

Srinagar: Former India cricketer Sunil Gavaskar has lashed out at Pakistan cricket team management for pure planning.

Pakistan has suffered two back to back defeats in tbe ongoing T20 World Cup. In first match they lost against India by four runs on last ball while as in second match were defeated by Zimbabwe by one run.

With that Pakistan are on the verge of getting knocked out of the tournament.

Speaking to India Today, Gavaskar slammed Pakistan of not using Mohammad Wasim Jr. in the match against India after his exploits against Zimbabwe where he had picked four wickets for 24 runs and scored two boundaries in his 13-ball 12.

“They don’t have a very settled middle order. In the T20I matches they played before, Fakhar Zaman played at No.3 or 4. Now he is just part of the squad, but not in the XI. Shan Masood is also there. although he is scoring runs. But I feel there selection hasn’t been good. For Australia conditions, if they had a bowler who could seam up, like Mohammad Wasim did against Zimbabwe. And he also played a couple of good shots as well. He has that talent. Unke paas toh Hardik Pandya jaisa player hai (he’s like Hardik Pandya), he’s still new but I’m just giving the idea that he can play those lofty shots and can give you a couple of overs as well. And they did not play him against India. They played two spinners. That is okay in Sydney, but at other venues, you need a player who can give you 3-4 overs and can score 30 runs in the last few overs,” he said.
