Former Pakistan pacer, Mohammad Amir, has taken a sly dig at Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) selection policy for the upcoming 2021 T20 World Cup. Amir hinted that PCB decided to make changes to Pakistan’s T20 World Cup squad after pressure from the cricketing fraternity.
PCB decided to make three major changes to the initial squad as the former captain, Sarfaraz Ahmed, young exciting batter, Haider Ali, and explosive opener, Fakhar Zaman, replaced Azam Khan, Khushdil Shah, and Mohammad Hasnain in the 15-man squad.
Amir took to Twitter to take a dig at the PCB. Amir tweeted that fast bowler, Wahab Riaz, and opener, Sharjeel Khan, should have been included in the squad as well but the PCB decided to select two players of their liking and were forced to select the other due to media pressure.
Amir tweeted, “I still believe Shoaib Malik, Sharjeel Khan and Wahab Riaz should be in the squad, but hwa wohi hai 2 tere or 2 mere but it’s time to support our team.”
Veteran middle-order batter, Shoaib Malik was included in the squad later on as middle-order batter, Sohaib Maqsood was ruled out of the tournament after suffering a back injury.
Amir expressed his delight at Malik’s inclusion and tweeted in his support once again.
