Shahid Afridi is not impressed with the team that has been selected for the #PakvsSL Test series. It is worth mentioning here that the former all-rounder briefly took over as Pakistan’s chief selector earlier in the year. He however, gave up soon after his appointment while citing prior commitments.
#PakvsSL: Shahid Afridi Not Happy With Team Selection
While criticizing the board for not selecting the right team Afridi said, “We developed a Test player; he fell ill, received treatment, and recovered. I’m talking about Abid Ali; where is he? I don’t understand, and besides him, you have kept two left-arm spinners in the team. There was a leg-spinner named Zahid Mehmood; where is he?”
“The rest of the squad is fine, but our players get out of the team for a while due to injuries, and then they struggle to find a place again in the squad. In my opinion, Usman Salahuddin has played for Pakistan previously and had some great performances. Where is he? I mean, you give chances to completely new players, you don’t give chances to the players you have invested in; they don’t seem to get noticed.”
