Following the #AusvsPak three-match Test series, here is a look at three Pakistani cricketers who couldn’t perform during the tour and hence, find themselves in serious trouble. It is worth mentioning here that Pakistan once again lost the series 3-nil and that they haven’t won a Test in Australia since 1995.
Imam-ul-Haq Might Face The Selector’s Axe After The #AusvsPak Test Series
Imam-ul-Haq lost his place in the ODI playing XI during the world cup in India owing to poor form. He once again failed to impress during the series in Australia and was eventually replaced with Siam Ayub during the final Test in Sydney. Imam is already not part of Pakistan’s T20 squad and so, there is a good probability that going forward, the selectors might not consider him at all in any format till the point he regains his lost form.
Sarfaraz was Pakistan’s first choice wicket-keeper batter in Test cricket prior to the series. However, Australian pacers proved a little too good for him to negotiate and so, he has once again lost his place in the squad to Rizwan. Because of the age that he is in, the selectors might not consider him again and the series in Australia could well be his last international outing.
As per media reports, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is very unhappy with spinner Abrar Ahmed who allegedly didn’t comply with the team doctor’s advice owing to which he suffered a back injury. Because of his compliancy, he was unable to play a single Test match during the tour. If the allegations are true, then Abrar’s behavior is certainly unprofessional and there is no harm if PCB decides to reprimand him.
