Babar Azam & Mohammad Wasim divided over Shoaib Malik selection in T20

Pakistan captain Babar Azam, and chief selector Mohammad Wasim are divided regarding the selection of veteran cricketer Shoaib Malik in the T20 squad.

As per the reports, Babar wants to add Shoaib to the T20 squad, according to him he can solve the middle-order batting issue of the team. Whereas, Wasim doesn’t want to include an aged player like Shoaib in the team ahead of T20 World Cup.

Reports further claimed that while citing their sources Wasim didn’t further reply to Babar on his request.

This year it is observed that the Pakistan team has been marred by middle-order batting issues. Only Fakhar Zaman, apart from Babar and Mohammad Rizwan, has completed their fifty in T20 for the national team.

Shoaib’s 354 runs made him the 4th highest run-scorer in the Pakistan Super League (PSL). He also proved his determination at this stage in the recently finished Kashmir Premier League (KPL) by scoring 240 runs in 7 matches.
