Pakistan Cricket | Why Pakistan’s pick is doubtful?
A large number of Pakistanis follow the national men’s cricket team continues to keep up with the latest developments. It’s not uncommon for fans to hope that their favorite players will represent their country in international competitions. So, the national team’s principal selector is considered one of the country’s most significant positions,” he continues. It is impossible to conceive what it would be like to be in the shoes of Pakistan’s prior head selectors because they never gave press conferences. Peer pressure, criticism, and accusations of favoritism put the selectors under a lot of pressure. But in most cases, the charges are found to be correct in some manner.
A case in point is Pakistan’s recent selection of ODI and T20 teams to play in the Netherlands and the Asia Cup. Abdullah Shafique, 22, was rewarded for his red-ball form by being named to Pakistan’s ODI team after leading Pakistan to a convincing victory against Sri Lanka last month. Choosing players for one format based on how they performed in another is rather common in Pakistan. This is because to the fact that Abdullah’s 57 runs in four List-A matches do not warrant his selection above Shan’s. They tend to be overlooked because of this.
In the absence of Saud Shakeel, a good player who had previously struck a fifty in five ODIs before taking a break due to a nose operation, Salman Ali Agha was once again neglected. When Fawad Alam was sent in to replace Salman in the first Test against Sri Lanka, it crushed Fawad’s self-confidence, and he failed miserably again in the second.
