Since the roster was released, Pakistan’s T20 World Cup 2021 squad has faced criticism.
Critics have questioned some of the choices, including Sohaib Maqsood, Asif Ali, Azam Khan, and Khushdil Shah.
On Twitter, a local journalist questioned the selectors’ decision to choose Azam Khan, Khushdil Shah, Asif Ali, and Sohaib Maqsood.
“Don’t just blame Azam, Khushdil, Asif Ali, or Sohaib,” he tweeted. “Ask those who chose them for WT20 without any planning or long-term strategy,” they say.
Sohaib Maqsood broke his silence on this tweet and addressed all of the criticism by slamming the journalist.
“Boss, whether we play in the World Cup or not is unimportant, but we aren’t chosen from the streets,” he tweeted. We are chosen from the same system of cricket that every Pakistani cricketer participates in. You’re writing as if we’ve been chosen from a backyard performance,”
