Mohd. Hasnain just replaced Shaheen Afridi who is all set to miss this year’s high voltage #PakvsInd contest during the #AsiaCup2022 and so, here is a look at why Mohd. Amir despite fans’ backing shouldn’t have been picked for the event and why the selectors have done a good job by opting for Mohd. Hasnain ahead of him as well as Hasan Ali.

It is nearly two years since Amir retired from international cricket. He has also suffered owing to injuries during the time and his performance in the T20 leagues even otherwise, hasn’t been too impressive. Thus, asking him to comeback at this stage made no sense at all especially, because there are better options available.

Hasan Ali was dropped for the event owing to poor form and so, his selection too would have only seemed logical if he had improved dramatically during the past few weeks. Perhaps Hasan requires more time and rushing him back at this point can prove counter productive. Therefore, resting Hasan till the home series against England seems to be Pakistan’s best bet if they want the pacer ready for the #T20WorldCup in Australia.

Mohd. Hasnain after remodeling his action has had good success in England. He is quick and should be hungry to reclaim his lost place in Pakistan’s squad. Having someone like him instead of senior out of form cricketers is obviously a much better choice and so, the selectors deserve credit for taking a decision that makes sense!
