Rashid Latif raised questions on the selection of the playing XI, the former captain says that Pakistan had options during the Sri Lanka tour but they were not used.
Rashid Latif, in an interview to the biggest website of Pakistan cricket, said that the Pakistani playing XI was not balanced in the two matches of the tour of Sri Lanka. Due to the extraordinary performance of Babar Azam and Abdullah Shafiq in the first test, the team turned the storm. Turns out, the overall performances were not good.
He said that Sri Lanka played 4 Tests against Pakistan and Australia at home ground, lost in 2 and won the same number, this rarely happens in Asia, but Test cricket was on the rise, good cricket was played with limited resources, he said. He said that if Azhar Ali was not in form, he would have fed Shaan Masood, brought in Sarfaraz Ahmed, there were options but they were not used, they did not learn from the mistakes of the first Test and lost the second match.
