Pakistan lost the seventh and the final T20 of the #PakvsEng2022 Series by 67 runs. The middle-order for men in green literally gave up the chase of 210 runs in the series decider (which England won 4-3) once Babar Azam and Mohd. Rizwan were dismissed cheaply within the power play.

Fakhar Zaman Definitely Seems To Be A Better Option Than Haider Ali After The #PakvsEng2022 Series
Fakhar like all other middle-order batters in the country hasn’t been in top form of late. Still, for now he seems a slightly better option than Haider Ali.

Bring In Shoaib Malik For Khushdil Shah
Pakistani selectors gave an entire year to Khushdil Shah to come good. He failed, he needs to play more of domestic cricket, it’s that simple! He has been so bad in the format that even the local crowd have started chanting against him! The green shirts don’t have another choice but to bring back the experienced Shoaib Malik.

This is again no brainer! Haris clearly isn’t ready for the international stage as yet!

Azam Khan on the other hand still requires more work on his fitness and so, former captain Sarfaraz Ahmed should be added to the reserves as he is the only logical replacement!
