Shaheen Shah Afridi and Imam Ul Haq removed from playing eleven

Two changes have been made in the playing eleven that Pakistan has announced for the match against Australia in Sydney. The special thing is that Shaheen Shah Afridi, who recently became the T20 captain of Pakistan, has been dropped, which means he will not be a part of the playing eleven. At the same time, opening batsman Imam Ul Haq has also not been given a chance in the playing eleven of the last test. However, it is not yet clear whether these two players have been dropped on the basis of performance or there is some issue of injury.
