Controversies on Pakistan Squad For T20 ICC World Cup 2021
Pakistani people have not consented to the 15-player Pakistan Squad For T20 ICC World Cup 2021, recently announced by the Pakistan Cricket Board PCB. Therefore, they doubt the decision and called it a parchi system in which inexperienced players have been picked up for the mega-event while dropping the experienced players. Thus, dropping professionals players such as Sarfaraz Ahmed, shahid khan Afridi, and Wahab Riaz is a poor decision as backlashed by the citizens of Pakistan. Additionally, Babar Azam will be the caption of the team. Further, Pakistan Cricket Fam believes that after such selection, the destiny and fortune of this T20 ICC World Cup 2021 for Pakistan will rely completely on Allah Almighty!
Statements of Chief Selector Muhammad Waseem
“Babar Azam will be the captain of the squad while Shadab Khan will be the vice-captain,” Chief Selector Muhammad Waseem said, adding that pinch hitters Asif Ali and Azam Khan have also been selected in the team.
‘Azam Khan selected as backup wicketkeeper.’
“ALSO Mohammad Rizwan is our number one wicketkeeper, and he will remain so,” said Waseem.
‘plus, We are confident Asif Ali will handle pressure better, perform well in the mega-event.’
“However, it was time to make a decision, and as far as our middle-order is concerned, his performance was not well, yes, but others too did not have strong performances to show for,” he said.
“ALSO, We kept in mind all players and decided these two were the best to make the team,” he said.
“thus, We kept a few players in mind who can handle pressure better,” he said.
