Are Shoaib Malik and Haris Sohail Returning to Pakistan’s T20 World Cup Squad?

The selection committee may return to Shoaib Malik as the middle order continues to underperform. Haris Sohail, a long-lost batter, could also be called up, reports have revealed.

While Babar Azam and the selection committee had spoken out strongly against returning to stale choices, young players’ inability to perform to expectations may force them to reconsider their stance. According to sources, two of the committee’s selectors have advised bringing back Shoaib Malik and Haris Sohail to help solidify the middle order. National coaches, Mushtaq Ahmad and Ijaz Ahmad have also suggested giving Shoaib Malik and Haris Sohail another shot in the England series for better assessment before the T20 World Cup 2022.

Shan Masood and Haider Ali were called up for their aggressive batting. The loss in the first encounter, however, has left selectors scratching their heads. The selection committee has now agreed to test as many middle-order options as possible. Furthermore, power hitters Khushdil Shah and Asif Ali may lose their spots in the lineup after continuous failures.

Babar Azam and the chief selector, Mohammad Wasim, will make the final decision in this regard and the World Cup squad can be altered till 15th October.

    • Ye apky village ka team nhe ke aisa asani se apny selection kiya hum ko fixing wala belkul nhe chahey Amir and Sharjel ko bhol jao

  • Yes.it would be a good move to bring Shoaib Malik and Haris Sohail back into the playing 11. Hyder Ali is also a better choice and must be given few chances before T20 world cup.

  • M.aamir,shoaib malik,imad waseem, sharjeel khan charon ko aana chahiye…do matches mein england ne 200+ score khaye…har bar 200+ chase nahi hoga…bowler bht kha late hai…tazz bowling kya faida…bowler ko samjdari honi chahiye…bowler har bar 200+ score khaye…batting har bar chase nahi kr sakti…mulak ka naam roshan kro…kaisi se dushmani ke badle na lo…please…jis ka haq banta hai unko le kr aaye…world cup khelne jana hai…duniya mein mazzak na banao…samjdari kre…please…❤ sub kuch bhool kr sochey…❤M.aamir Shoaib malik imad waseem and sharjeel khan….T20 mein hitting ke saat samjdari honi chahiye…❤

  • This good I hope they will employment there suggestion and it is for the team to strengthen the metal order

  • Aree kisi ku bhi lao laikin mushkil ye hai har koi ek match mai acha karta toh dosre mai fail ho jata pehlo confidence lao apne ap mai.

  • Shoaib Malik must be included in the squad, Pak team does not belong to someone else and is personal property, Malik and Haris must be in New Zealand series squad. If they would select it will be better for Pak Team and Fans.

  • Shoaib Malik best midlodr hay Pakistan k lia lazmi la k Ayn poora Pakistan chhata hy k wo Ayn inshallah….

  • Moh wasem ki jaga Moh Amir ko layn kushdil Aur iftekhar ko Chang ker k Malik…..sharjeel… Harris Sohail…sohaib maqsood ye Best hyn pakistn k lia inshallah phr world cup bh pakistn ka hy….

  • Bai Dhoni world best captn raha hy….wo bol ra hy k t20 best midlodr shoaib Malik hay world ka …..selector khud apna player’s ko tbah kr ray hyn unki ezat kam ker rha hyn …. inshallah shoaib Malik agye wo performance bh dayn gay ga Pakistan world cup bh lae ga inshallah…

  • Chances of this to happen are quite slim, I afraid.
    But I do agree with shoaib malik being back in the team. As far as haris is concerned, I’m not so sure, at least for now, we need someone like Asif Ali at his position because the top order consumes a lot of overs and when Asif comes to bat only he can hit big(if he gets going). But all said, I think nothing is going to change and this team playing against England is going to play the World Cup except the few obvious changes like Shaheen and probably fakhar back in, etc.

  • Sharjeel khan, Shoaib Malik, Omer Akmal, Muhammmad Amir andimad Waseem ko team m shamil kry agr ap t20 world cup jeetna chahty hn

  • Shoaib Malik could play better role in this young Pakistani side.
    One of them Asif Ali and Khushdil should remain in the team and captain should utilize them by shuffling in batting order as per match situation, as we saw the role of Shahid Afridi in the past.
