Fakhar Zaman has been in poor form for almost two years. But Pakistan still carried him and believed in him. After seeing his performances in the ODI series against SA. He is also now been recalled to the Pak team squad for the T20 series against South Africa and Zimbabwe.
Both Head coach and captain requested the Pakistan selection committee to recall Fakhar amid his brilliant performance. Babar wants Fakhar in the T20 squad because of his ongoing form and his ability to strike big in the start.
He scored 302 runs in the recently concluded ODI series against SA. After his scintillating performances, he has given a stup-up call to all of his haters.
People started to raise questions that why a player in such an outstanding form is not included in the Pak team squad.
Fakhar Zaman “I’ve played enough to know a few things about the game but am sorry I still haven’t been able to meet the high-standards of those ex-cricketers who criticise me. But I will work hard and perform well so that even they will say that my innings aren’t flukes” #Cricket— Saj Sadiq (@Saj_PakPassion) April 8, 2021
After the momentous 193 runs innings in the 2nd ODI, people were calling this a fluke. But in the very next match, he replied with another hundred.
His ongoing form is the major reason for his call up to the Pak team squad after being dropped. Team Management said that they are keeping an eye on him as he is on their priority list for the T20 World Cup.
Pakistan is preparing for the T20 World Cup which is scheduled later this year. And Fakhar’s form might be an added advantage for the preparation of the tournament. Pak team squad needs an aggressive opener to give flamboyant starts. Along with Sharjeel Khan, Fakhar can prove very destructive.
Along with brilliant performance, Shadab’s injury proved to be a blessing in disguise for Fakhar. As he is now included in the team replacing Shadab Khan. Fakhar Zaman is added to the Pak team squad for South Africa and Zimbabwe series.
