Aqib Javed, a former Test cricketer, encourages the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to reassure the existing national squad that there will be no changes in the selection. If Pakistan’s squad for the ICC T20 World Cup is revised, Aqib believes the world will mock Pakistan.
He stated that Pakistan’s first match will be against India, and that if the team is not passionate, it has the ability to outclass its arch-rivals and other opponents.
“If we don’t get too worked up over the opening match against India, this team has the ability to do something,” says the coach.
We should back the announced T20 World Cup squad, according to former Test fast bowler and head coach of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchise Lahore Qalandars. “I don’t believe the squad will change, and I don’t believe it should. “If we do it, the world will laugh at us,” he said.
Aqib warned against making decisions based on a seven-day form. “First, consider who consistently performs well. Now, if you’ve chosen [the] players, back them up,” he remarked, reiterating PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja’s statement that we should back the players who have been chosen.
According to Aqib, the selection procedure has been inconsistent for the past two or three years.
“Due to a lack of continuity, the team has reached this position. The group was not as awful as it was portrayed. After being dropped two to three times, players have been brought back, which has caused them to lose confidence,” he stated.
He stated that the PCB’s message should be able to reach the general population so that they may support the squad as well.
