Experienced Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik has expressed his willingness to participate in T20 matches for the national squad, while opting out of ODIs and Test matches. Malik’s frustration stems from his perceived unfair exclusion from the team, despite maintaining a strong performance record.
In his candid remarks, Malik has modest expectations from Captain Babar Azam, the selectors, and the cricket board. He remains committed to playing the sport for as long as it brings him joy and satisfaction. He holds an optimistic outlook on the upcoming 2023 ODI World Cup, placing his faith in Babar Azam’s leadership and the team’s capabilities. Despite acknowledging the pressure all teams will face, Malik believes that Pakistan’s commendable track record positions them well.
