Former Pakistan Cricket Team Director, Mohammad Hafeez, voiced his disappointment with Islamabad United captain Shadab Khan’s leadership during their recent Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2024 fixture against Multan Sultans.

In the match held at Multan Cricket Stadium, Islamabad United suffered a five-wicket defeat after setting a target of 145 runs, managing only 144 all out in their innings. Hafeez criticized Shadab Khan’s decision to bat down the order when his team needed to accelerate the scoring rate, instead of promoting himself up the order.

Expressing his discontent on the A Sports show “The Pavilion,” Hafeez remarked that Shadab Khan, known for his aggressive batting, surprised the cricketing world with his unusual batting position. He emphasized that Shadab Khan, being a regular batter, should have taken more responsibility and batted higher up the order.

Hafeez further criticized Shadab Khan’s bowling performance in the game, suggesting that his inconsistency was evident not only in his batting approach but also in his bowling execution.

The remarks from Mohammad Hafeez shed light on the challenges faced by Islamabad United in the PSL 2024 season and raise questions about Shadab Khan’s leadership decisions on the field. As the tournament progresses, it remains to be seen how Shadab Khan responds to such criticism and leads his team in upcoming matches.
