Srinagar: According to Shahid Afridi, a former captain of
the Pakistan cricket team, the squad does not have an all-rounder like Hardik
Pandya from Team India, which is a significant disadvantage.

We don’t have a finisher like Pandya, but we do have other
options. However, it seems that Asif Ali and Khushdil will not be able to
complete the task. Both Nawaz and Shadab have a pattern of inconsistency in
their behaviour. “At least two of these four players need to be consistent
if we want to win this series against England,” Shahid Afridi stated while
discussing the Pakistan vs. England series.

“The time during which Shadab bowls is of the utmost
importance. “The day Pakistan wins because he does a terrific job with the
ball is the day Pakistan wins,” he continued by saying.

Afridi has recommended to the management of the Pakistan
squad that they give uncapped all-rounder Aamir Jamal a go in the games that
remain against England.

 

When playing on wickets like the ones we are using right
now, you need at least two true fast bowlers and one all-rounder. Why don’t you
play the new person, Jamal, who we have selected as the best option? Play him
as an all-rounder, giving him the opportunity to bowl and then batting
thereafter. “You will find out what kind of cricketer he is,” he
promised. “It will become clear.”

 

Afridi emphasised how important it is for Pakistan to
correct its previous errors before the T20 World Cup.

 

“If Pakistan wants to win the World Cup,” he
continued, “then they need to work a lot on their bowling and batting and
minimise the mistakes that they have been committing in the last few
matches.” “If Pakistan wants to win the World Cup,” he said,
“then they need to work a lot on their bowling and batting.”
