Wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Harris has made his debut in the just-concluded ODI series against the West Indies. Batting in two innings in the series, Harris managed to score a total of 6 runs. Despite having Mohammad Rizwan, he had wicketkeeping gloves in his hand in the last match.
Naturally, Pakistan players are not satisfied with Harris as he has scored only 6 runs in two innings. However, the country’s former captain Shahid Afridi has raised questions on the other side. According to him, the main reason for Harris’ performance is the selectors who took him to the team.
“It was a foolish decision for them,” Afridi told local TV channels. I (PCB chairman) will not tell Ramiz Raja anything, but if Mohammad Wasim (chief selector) has heard, I will tell him not to take such a decision again. ‘
Advising not to take the national team on the basis of just one or two T20 matches, he added, “Why are you taking players for ODI cricket who have performed in two T20 matches. Is it so easy to be called up for the national team now? ‘
Afridi said he had seen potential youngsters play domestic cricket first. But let them play domestic cricket first. You have Sarfaraz and Rizwan in your team. It’s not that Rizwan’s career is over, so he needs someone new. ‘
