Former Pakistan skipper Inzamam-ul-Haq has asked the management to include some new faces in the realm of T20Is in times to come. Inzamam added that the next T20 World Cup is all set for 2022 in Australia and men in green can try out some fresh faces in their upcoming fixtures to prepare them.

Inzamam stated that the PCB selection committee must be on the lookout to get some new cricketers in the lot. He stated the example of Mohammad Hafeez asking for new players instead of him on the Bangladesh tour. However, the team took Iftikhar Ahmed instead of including other fresh names. The former cricketer added that Babar and his men look perfect in their base and will see positive results going forward.

“PCB and selection panel might be thinking of including new cricketers in this T20 cricket. Mohammad Hafeez asked them to include a new player instead of him [on Bangladesh tour], however, they picked Iftikhar Ahmed but I think young players must be included. It’s a great opportunity for Babar and PCB as the base of the side is perfect and I think we will see positive things going forward,” said Haq while speaking on his YouTube Channel.

Moving further into the conversation, Inzamam opened up on the most talked-about aspect of Pakistan cricket these days. The dropped catch by Hasan Ali on Shaheen Afridi’s delivery made everyone talk. While many criticized the cricketer, several turned up in his support.

The former cricketer stated that every player tries to give his best but some errors happen. In this case, Ali gave in his best to save the running catch but somehow it couldn’t be completed, he reckoned. As soon as Ali dropped the catch, Wade hit Afridi for three straight sixes to take Australia home with one over remaining.

“Every player gives his best but sometimes bad things happen. Hasan made a brilliant effort as it was a running catch, it went down but criticizing him is totally wrong,” he concluded.
