Patriot Web Desk: Alan Wilkins has expressed delight at the decision to include opener Ahmed Shahzad to the Pakistan squad for the T20 World Cup. Shahzad was dropped for the recently concluded Asia Cup after a run of poor games.
Wilkins in a message on Twitter said, ‘Delighted that Ahmad Shahzad has been recalled to the Pakistan squad for the 2016 World T20. Selectors have made a good decision.
Shahzad had performed well in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) scoring three half centuries for Quetta Gladiators in the tournament. He was also among the top 10 highest run scorers in the tournament.
Shahzad will not replace Khurram Manzoor in the squad, Khurram was a surprise selection for the Asia Cup and selectors were criticized for including him as the opener wasn’t even part of the Pakistan Super League.
