Pakistan’s veteran commentator, Ramiz Raja was not really happy with the Pakistan’s team selection in the 1st T20I match against Sri Lanka. Pakistan drafted in Umar Akmal, Ahmed Shehzad, Iftikhar Ahmed for the inaugural T20I battle at Lahore. The home team completely misfired allowing the visitors to take one lead up in the series.
Ramiz said that the Pakistan’s plan was destined to fail as they keep on experimenting with the recycled mis-hits. “Absolutely horrendous team selection, why should we fix something which is not broken” Ramiz added furiously. He feels that Pakistan should not have broken the winning combination as they were doing fairly well in the recent past.
The new combination broke the momentum and provided Pakistan with a very ordinary start to the T20I series. Still, there are two games more to play with and this is probably the last chance for Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Akmal to justify their selections in the team.
