Pakistan’s chief selector Mohammad Wasim and team management faced immense criticism on surprising selections in the T20 World Cup squad.
Pakistani cricket fans called the announced team ‘mediocre’ as it contains already tested and failed cricketers such as Asif Ali and Khushdil Shah.
Here’s how Pakistanis reacted to the T20I squad which will play series against New Zealand, England and T20 World Cup:
