Pakistani cricket fans and some senior cricket players are upset with Shoaib Malik not getting the farewell he deserved after serving his team for 20 years.
Shoaib Malik Bids Farewell to Cricket
Shoaib Malik started his one-day international career in October of 1999 against West Indies. He had the pleasure of playing with some of the most legendary and respectable cricketers of Pakistan like Wasim Akram and Inzamam-ul-Haq. He was the most senior and experienced player on the team that took part in the CWC 2019 in England.
It is a well-established tradition that whenever a senior player retires, he should be given a proper send off like other senior player have gotten over the years. For him not to get a proper sent off like those before him is nothing but an insult and disgrace.
Irrespective of how he performs Malik has been in the limelight on multiple occasions for his good sense of dressing and good looks.
In cricket world cup 2019 Shoaib Malik had remained in the limelight of controversies along with his family members. His wife and athlete Sania Mirza’s social media clash with Veena Malik was just one dramatic episode.
Don’t Worry Its Shoaib
unlike other players who have a terrible history of dropping catches, fans have always found comfort knowing that he’s the one taking the catch because it was a rare sight to see him drop the one.
According to his junior teammates, Shoaib was always there when they needed someone to talk to or if they need guidance on any matter.
Such Great Talent But No Proper Respect
Pakistan has a rich history of producing some of the best cricketers who have gained international fame and have developed a massive fan following as a result of their performance. Ironically all of these legends have not been given a proper farewell by the Pakistan Cricket Board.
Like those before him now he too will be missed https://twitter.com/maham_punk/status/1147156870446100480
