KARACHI: Pakistan’s T20 World Cup squad has remained on the edge of criticism since its announcement earlier this month.
Few of the selections such as Sohaib Maqsood, Asif Ali, Azam Khan, Khushdil Shah has been questioned by critics.
Following the buzz, a local journalist questioned selectors for selecting Azam, Khushdil, Asif, and Sohaib.
“Don’t only Blame Azam, Khushdil, Asif Ali or Sohaib. Ask those who selected them for WT20 without any planning or long run,” he wrote.

This tweet managed to gain the attention of Sohaib who finally spoke about all the criticism. “Boss whether we play world cup or not that secondary but we arent selected from the streets. We are selected from the same system and cricket where every cricketer in Pakistan plays. You are writing like we are selected from the performance in the backyard,” the cricketer replied.
