After a fan inquires about Shoaib Malik’s cricket retirement, Wasim Akram furiously interrupts

Veteran all-rounder Shoaib Malik’s absence from Pakistan’s T20 World Cup roster was one of the squad’s significant exclusions. The 40-year-old superstar played for the team in the World Cup the year before, but he has left off the roster for the prestigious event this year in Australia. Due to the middle-order batsmen’s patchy performances, Malik was generally expected to be selected in the 15-member team by many former cricketers; nevertheless, the selection committee decided to stick with the current group of batters for the tournament.

Speculations over Malik’s international future increased when the all-rounder was passed over for the T20 World Cup. The Pakistani star took part in a World Cup expert panel before the competition began when he was once again questioned about his future with the team. When a supporter questioned whether Malik had already retired from international cricket, Wasim Akram, the former Pakistan captain, responded in a highly angry manner rather than the all-rounder.

Along with Malik, Akram served on the expert panel for the program, and the legendary speed bowler made no effort to disguise his irritation at the fan’s query.

Retirement lunga, main jab, vo sabko pata chalega. I don’t have a plan right now; I’m just enjoying watching cricket. (Everyone will be aware of when I retire. There isn’t a strategy for that at the moment since I’m enjoying my cricket,” Malik said.
