In an interview with Australian media, Ramiz Raja was asked that Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan have returned to form in the batting in the semi-final and that the opening pair have started giving the expected results from them, and Shaheen Afridi get his form back as well. What do you say about this?
In response, Chairman PCB Ramiz Raja said that if I show you my WhatsApp message in which many of my people have criticized me, why don’t you understand that Babar Azam and Rizwan are not the opening pair? A walker, change it, and Shaheen Shah Afridi is not 100% recovered from injury, but still, you are playing him in matches.
So I will say today that all these people’s mouths are closed. They further said that sometimes you have to take risks in cricket. Imran Khan’s shoulder was injured in the 1992 World Cup, but he still played the final match. And if Shaheen Afridi is also 50% fit, he had to take the risk of playing. And then he performed and showed it.
Rameez Raja said that Mohammad Haris is a young and emerging talent. But he cannot play consecutive international matches yet. Will try to gain experience by playing as many domestic matches as possible
