Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Thursday confirmed the 15-man squad that would travel to Australia to participate in the upcoming 2022 T20 World Cup. While Babar Azam will take charge, not everyone seems happy with the choices made by PCB.
Former Pakistani pacesetter Mohammad Amir has done a massive dig at the PCB and Pakistan chief selector Muhammad Wasim’s team, calling it “cheap selection.”
Commenting on the Pakistan squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup, Amir wrote: “chief selector[sic] ki cheap selection.”

Notably, Pakistan has summoned Shan Masood, who has been summoned in the T20I format for the first time. While power hitter Fakhar Zaman has been named in the traveling reserves, not in the main squad.
Amir, meanwhile, made his thoughts about the team clear with his tweet.
Pakistan had recently reached the Asian Cup 2022 final but lost the top match against Sri Lanka by 23 runs.
