Pakistan’s veteran all-rounder, Shoaib Malik couldn’t make his last World Cup a memorable one for himself as he terribly failed to put a single good performance in the mega-event. Malik’s poor record in England has stretched even further.
Malik scored two consecutive ducks in the ongoing World Cup including one in the highly anticipated match against India. After failing in all the three matches he was a part of, Malik was subsequently dropped from the team in favour of Haris Sohail.
Now with Pakistan virtually out of the World Cup, it is reported that the senior all-rounder might be included in the playing XI for the match against Bangladesh to hand him the farewell for his services in the Pakistani team.
The 37-year-old played 35 Tests, 287 One-day Internationals and 111 Twenty20 Internationals for Pakistan during a long career spanning over 18 years and also captained the team.
