Hashtag #DestroyerNajamSethi trended on social media after Rashid Latif took a dig at Najam Sethi and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). The former captain came down hard on the game’s governing body in the country following rumors which suggest that PCB plans to drop Shadab Khan.
It is worth mentioning here that Shadab after the T20 series loss to Afghanistan praised the T20 opening pair that comprises of regular skipper Babar Azam and Mohd. Rizwan. Both are often criticized because of a low strike-rate. His statement, “Now everyone would have understood the importance of Babar and Rizwan” as per media reports did not go down well with PCB. As a consequence of remaining loyal with Babar Azam, Shadab might lose white ball vice-captaincy on one hand and his place in the playing XI to Usama Mir on the other.
