The last match of the three-match Test series between Australia and Pakistan is being played at the Sydney Cricket Ground. In this match, Pakistan team did not play its most experienced left arm fast bowler Shaheen Afridi, the reason behind which has been said to be his workload management. Regarding this decision, two great former fast bowlers of Pakistan team, Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis, have expressed their anger and criticized this decision of the management. Shaheen was a part of the team in the first 2 matches of this Test series, but his bowling was not as expected. Immediately after the end of this tour, Pakistan has to tour New Zealand, where the team will play a 5-match T20 series and Shaheen will be seen handling the responsibility of captaining the team.

This is not management’s decision but Shaheen’s decision only.

Regarding the decision of not playing Shaheen in the Sydney Test, former fast bowler of Pakistan team Wasim Akram said on Fox Cricket that this decision had nothing to do with the management. This was completely Shaheen’s decision. Whether you want to become great in the game or you want to become a millionaire, it is up to you to decide which format to prefer. Right after this series, we have to play a five-match T20 series in New Zealand and Shaheen is captaining the team in it. But who cares about T20 cricket? I know that this is just a format for entertainment and to earn money for the cricket board and also for the players. Cricket players have to understand that Test cricket comes first. If we talk about the Sydney Test that took place 20 years ago, everyone will remember it, but no one knows what happened in the T20 match that took place last night and you need to understand this difference.

I don’t understand this decision

Like Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis also criticized the decision of not playing Shaheen in the Sydney Test and said in his statement to Channel 7 that we play to play in Test cricket and not for T20 or ODI cricket. . In such a situation, if you do not play any Test match just because of rest, then I do not understand this decision. This is no less than a surprise for me because I expected him to play in this match, he was bowling very well in the last match.
