Former Pakistan head coach Misbah-ul-Haq said he “didn’t understand” why top-order batsman Fakhar Zaman was not picked in the T20 World Cup squad right from the beginning.

Zaman was initially included as a reserve player before being added to the main squad.

In the tournament, he scored 109 runs in six games, which included a top score of 55 not out, at an average of 27.25 and a strike-rate of 118.47.

As for the T20 series against Bangladesh, he was in red-hot form as he accumulated 91 runs in two matches, which included a top score of 57 not out, at an average of 91 and a strike-rate of 104.59.

“I didn’t understand why Fakhar was excluded from the initial squad despite his good recent form. He performed in South Africa and was in good touch,” Misbah said on A-Sports’ show The Pavilion.

Pakistan will now play two Tests against Bangladesh, with the series beginning on November 26.

Pakistan squad for Bangladesh Test series: Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Rizwan (wicketkeeper), Abdullah Shafique, Abid Ali, Azhar Ali, Bilal Asif, Faheem Ashraf, Fawad Alam, Hasan Ali, Imam-ul-Haq, Kamran Ghulam, Mohammad Abbas, Mohammad Nawaz, Naseem Shah, Nauman Ali, Sajid Khan, Sarfaraz Ahmed (wicketkeeper), Saud Shakeel, Shaheen Afridi, Zahid Mahmood

One thought on “Should have been picked from the beginning, Misbah on Pakistan player in good touch

  1. Misba life ma pehli bar aip na insaf ki or sachi bat ky ha. Aip ka question ka jawab ma deta houn. Kue ka babar and his group company Fakhar ko pasand nhi karta kue ka Fakhar & Sharjeel opner batsman ha or rizwan & babar na opening karni hoti ha.
    Rizwan & babar ka slow khelna ki waja sa hum bohat match hara ka jiska kesi ko andaza nhi sab logo ki nazar ma wo catch match ki har ka karan bana lakin kesi na ya nhi note kiya Babar & Rizwan genuine opner nhi ha na wo jahrana khel pesh kar sakta hain like Fakhar & Sharjeel, Hafeez, S Malik. M asif.
    Agar aip World cup ki 15 players ki strike rate list check kro babar & Rizwan on 15 players ma bi nhi majood ya sab sa bara proof ha.
    Is waja sa bi babar ka sab sa ziyada runs hona ka bawajod player of the world cup nhi diya.
    Fakhar ko ab khelana majbori ha inki us ki performance atni ziyada ha ka ab agar wo is ko khelaya ha awam or social media pa jena haram kar dagi.
    Hassan ali pora world ma achi nhi khela lakin us ko drop nhi kiya giya balka captain or PCB ki full support rahi ha.
