SYDNEY: Former skipper of Pakistan cricket team and master of swing bowling Wasim Akram revealed that Bilawal Bhatti’s selection in the team was controversial.
Wasim Akram while giving his opinion on a match between Pakistan and New Zealand said that this was the worst bowing performance by the team.
He said that Pakistan should have played with five genuine bowlers, but they still kept on trying four bowlers in the match.
Talking about Mohammad Irfan he said that he don’t know what happen to his pace in just a few month. It dropped at least 10 kph.
Commenting on Bilawal’s irresponsible bowling he said that he knew that selectors wanted Bilawal in the team but captain and coach refused to select him in World Cup squad.
He is a talented cricketer but not ready for the mega event, Akram added.
It is pertinent to mention here that Pakistan lost 2nd One Day International (ODI) against New Zealand with 119 runs margin. Bilawal gave 93 runs in his 10 overs without taking any wicket. It is the worst bowling performance by a Pakistani bowler in International match.
