Written by Vipin Darwade

Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has joined the long list of people not satisfied with the selection of Pakistan’s T20 World Cup squad.

The former pacer spoke to PTV Sports about the players who were named to take part in the mega-tournament, and took a hit at Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) CEO Wasim Khan.

“The Pakistan squad for T20 World Cup will be changed. Mohammad Wasim is not a chief selector, he is just a puppet,” he said.

He went on to share who he would have picked for the World Cup: “The Pakistan squad for T20 World Cup should include Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Rizwan, Shoaib Malik, Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Afridi, Hasan Ali, Shahnawaz Dahani, Faheem Ashraf, Mohammad Amir, Fakhar Zaman and Hussain Talat.”
