Legendary Pakistan pace bowler Shoaib Akhtar said chief selector Mohammad Wasim is nothing more than a “puppet”.
This comes after Akhtar expressed his disappointment at the team selected for the T20 World Cup.
The Rawalpindi Express firmly believes that the squad will be changed ahead of the tournament, but it remains to be seen if that will actually happen.
“The Pakistan squad for T20 World Cup will be changed. Mohammad Wasim is not a chief selector, he is just a puppet,” he said on PTV Sports as quoted by Cricket Pakistan.
Pakistan will kick off their T20 World Cup campaign against India on October 24 in Dubai.
