Shoaib Malik’s cricket career
Shoaib Malik retired from cricket with the conclusion of the recent ICC T20 International World Cup. He was initially not part of the T20 squad but was included after the injury of Sohaib Maqsood. Malik with his impressive performance in the World Cup had won the hearts of his fans once again at home.
“I was playing the Caribbean Premier League when the initial squad was announced and when my name was not there, it hurt but I had a way to get my frustration out as I was playing.
“Then I came back to Pakistan and did well in the National Twenty20 and luckily got selected, so I am happy that I am here and enjoying my time.”
