Aqib Javed is keen on former captain Shoaib Malik’s presence on the team

Former Test cricketer Aqib Javed praised all-rounder Shoaib Malik and pointed out the problems in the Pakistan team.

He said that a team like England comes with a plan, they know how to plan, we lack that, they had planned how to get out which player, if the openers get out, then there is hope on the opposition bowlers. Knowing that the visitors will also get out, and bowl fast and short-pitched balls, our batter’s technique is exposed.

He further said that three-dimensional matters the most, there is no better fielder than Shoaib Malik in the Pakistan team even now, which means his fitness is very good, facing more spinners at number 5. And Shoaib knows how to play spinners, and can bowl two or three overs, he is a valuable player.

Talking about Shaheen Shah, the former fast bowler added that the fast bowler cannot play with an injury, we hope that Shaheen Afridi returns to the team after being fully fit, one should not take risks on less than 100% fitness, or knee injury. He can play only if he is 100% fit.
