Ahead of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament, Pakistan has rejigged their squad by swapping three players. While absorbing the changes, questions were also raised against all-rounders Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Hafeez, particularly the former who possesses a shoddy record batting in England.
However, chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq believes that Pakistan cannot spurn the experience of the two veterans disdainfully. Highlighting the average age of the squad and the need of experience, the former captain braced both the all-rounders to play a pivotal role in Pakistan’s World Cup campaign. Moreover, the 49-year old is confident about green shirts doing well in the upcoming mega-event which is to commence from May 30 in England and Wales.
“Our team is filled with young guns and so the experience should be there to guide them in tough times. Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik are senior cricketers who contain a plethora of experience. I am expecting both the players to do well in the World Cup,” said by Inzamam-ul-Haq while announcing Pakistan’s World Cup squad in a press conference.
