Everyday something or the other is happening in the Pakistan cricket team which is surprising everyone. There are reports that the chief selector of Pakistan Shahid Afridi Now making a different plan to improve the performance of the team in T20 cricket. There are reports that Shahid Afridi has said that only those players will get a place in the T20 team whose strike rate will be more than 135 in domestic cricket. If this news of Afridi’s statement is confirmed, then the place of Pakistan captain Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan is also in danger.
According to the report of Geo News, the interim chief selector Afridi said that the players whose strike rate is less than 135 in the domestic T20 will not get a place in the Pakistani team. Let us tell you that in recent times many questions have been raised on the strike rate of Pakistani batsmen. Batsmen like Babar Azam-Mohammed Rizwan are also included in these players.
The entire Pakistan team will have to be changed!
If this decision of Shahid Afridi gets the green signal, then it will be difficult to choose the playing XI of Pakistan. Because among the players playing in Pakistan’s T20 team, only Shadab Khan, Asif Ali and Mohammad Nawaz have a strike rate of more than 135. All other batsmen do not come true on this scale of Afridi.

By the way, this statement of Afridi is absurd because not every batsman can hit in T20 cricket. There are some players who play the anchor role. However, the problem of the Pakistani team is that their entire top order seems to be playing the anchor role.
Shahid Afridi wants to emphasize on young players
Shahid Afridi also said that he wants to emphasize on the under-19 and Pakistan-A team. He believes that both these teams should also be sent to tour foreign countries like the senior team of Pakistan.
