Veteran Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Malik has put an end to the rumours surrounding his retirement from cricket. The batting stalwart, who is now retired from Test and ODI cricket, has been vocal about him playing the shortest format of the game.
Recently, post his match in the Lanka Premier League, Malik confirmed that he is open for selection in the T20Is for his side but has no expectations from anyone. “I am still available to play T20I cricket for Pakistan, but I don’t expect anything from the captain or selectors,” Malik told Pak TV.
The 41-year-old added that he has “zero expectations” from anyone and will continue to play till the time he is enjoying. Malik last played a T20I for Pakistan in November 2021. He is currently playing for Jaffna Kings in the ongoing Lanka Premier League 2023.
Malik also asserted that he has high hopes from the Babar Azam-led side in the upcoming World Cup 2023. It is to be noted that the ODI World Cup 2023 is set to take place in October - November in India.
