#CWC23: Shoaib Malik Explains The Significance Of Supporting Babar Azam
While shedding light on chances of Pakistan during the upcoming world cup, Malik said, “I always thought Saud Shakeel should be mandatory in the Pakistan Cricket Team. A batter with a strong technique like Saud plays an important role after Babar Azam and Rizwan.
“Babar Azam has been doing captaincy of Pakistan, and this is the time to support him. The media also has to play an important role in supporting Babar in the World Cup. I’m very hopeful of a good performance from the Pakistan Cricket Team and I expect good captaincy from Babar in the World Cup.
“Naseem, Shaheen [Shah] and Haris [Rauf] became a strong trio. Unfortunately, Naseem got injured, but the PCB Selection Committee should have prepared other bowlers as well during the previous series.”
