Shoaib Akhtar Trolled “Misbah 2.0” Of The Pakistan Cricket Team

Shoaib Akhtar

Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar slammed the selectors after the Pakistan Cricket Board announced its squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022, which is scheduled to take place in Australia in the month of October. Shoaib Akhtar was disappointed with the selection of Iftikhar Ahmed, whom he referred to as ‘Misbah Part 2'.

Speaking about his selection in the 15-member squad of the Pakistan cricket team in his latest YouTube video, Shoaib Akhtar said that most of the Pakistani batters would be exposed to the conditions in Australia. He said:

“Your favourite and my favourite. I am not getting personal. I am talking about what is in your heart. Iftikhar (Ahmed) – Misbah Part 2. We already had (Mohammad) Rizwan and now we have Iftikhar…If you have selected a side like this and you wish to go to the World Cup like this in Australia…There if the ball moves even a little bit, like in Dubai it happened and nobody had a clue…Made Bhuvneshwar Kumar look like Malcolm Marshall…,”

Sharing the video on his twitter handle, Akhtar wrote: “Aap sab kay dil ki awaz (Just like the way everyone wanted), Iftikhar remains in the team, so does Khushdil. Wah selector sb, kya selection ki hai. This will be exposed badly in Australia.”
