When the Pakistan team could not secure its place in the semi-finals due to its disappointing performance in the ODI World Cup 2023, apart from captain Babar Azam, the one player who faced the most criticism was leg spinner Shadab Khan. Before the World Cup, Pakistan had also seen poor performance in the Asia Cup 2023 and at that time everyone had expressed concern about the form of the spinners. Despite this, Babar Azam expressed full confidence in Shadab Khan, although he could not do anything special in the tournament. Now, during an interview, Shadab gave a big statement about his friendship with Babar and also expressed his views on the issue of his inclusion in the team.

I was not part of the team because of friendship

Shadab Khan said in his interview to Pakistani news channel Sama TV that I was not in the team because of Babar Azam’s friendship. I don’t think this can happen because of friendship. If so then I would like it to happen in different leagues also. I get offers to play in leagues around the world, but even though Babar is not with me there, I am still included in the top category. There must be a reason why I am chosen. There is no connection between my friendship with Babar and my selection. In the ODI World Cup 2023, Shadab Khan got a chance to play only five matches, in which he managed to take a total of only 2 wickets.

When I was getting better in the test, I was dropped

Pakistan team, under the captaincy of Shan Masood, is currently on a tour of Australia, where they have to play a three-match T20 series against the host team from December 14. Shadab has not got a place in this team, he played his last Test match against England in the year 2020. Regarding this also, Shadab said that when I was improving as a Test bowler, I was dropped from the team. At that time I had started playing red ball regularly and my bowling was also improving. So far, Shadab Khan has played 6 test matches for Pakistan and in them he has managed to take 14 wickets.
