Junaid Khan, Shaheen Afridi, and Shadab Khan should not have participated in the Twenty20 Blast.Khan believes that the PCB should handle the elder players on the national side with more care.Junaid Khan, a bowler for the Pakistani national team, is quoted as saying that speedster Shaheen Shah Afridi and all-rounder Shadab Khan should not have taken part in the Twenty20 Blast, which is currently taking place in England.Khan suggested in a video that he posted to his YouTube channel that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) should be more careful with the senior players on the Pakistan national team because this year is the World Cup year and the players will need to be in top physical form for the tournament.
“In my opinion, it would have been ideal if the board didn’t allow him [Shaheen] to play and recommended him to improve on his fitness and take some rest since the World Cup is close, and there are more series ahead, and we need him. Also, because the World Cup is close, and there are more series ahead. According to Junaid, “he is not required in the league because he is the backbone of the Pakistan team.”In order to provide extra evidence in support of his assertion, he continued by saying, “Shaheen Afridi is playing in all three formats for the PCB.”
He has only just recently returned from an injury, and you must have seen that since his comeback, he has only participated in two matches, both of which he has struggled in.In addition to this, the Pakistani cricketer stated, “Shadab already has some fitness issues, and he has also been allowed to play in the league.” Shadab has been given permission to participate in the league. In my view, PCB ought to give some consideration to these matters.On the other hand, Junaid is of the opinion that playing league cricket in England will prove to be useful for younger
players such as pacer Zaman Khan and leg-spinner Usama Mir.”Just like Usama Mir and Zaman Khan came to participate in the league, these are the younger players who have come here to learn, just like I came here in the beginning and learned a lot, so the players who play Twenty20 cricket or just played one or two matches, when you allow such players to participate in the leagues, they learn a lot of things, but when you allow players like Shaheen and Shadab, and God forbid if they injured themselves, then who will be responsible for that?” A veteran fast bowler named Hasan Ali, a dynamic left-handed opening batsman named Shan Masood, a left-arm spinner named Zafar Gohar, and a top-order hitter named Haider Ali are also participating in the competition.
