Twitter fraternity criticize Misbah over Usman Qadir’s selection
Twitter fraternity lashed out at the Pakistan cricket team head coach-cum-chief selector Misbah-ul-Haq,over the selection of Usman Qadir, son of former Pakistan great, Abdul Qadir (late) in the squad.
it is pertinent to mention here that Usman Qadir, who has represented the PM XI in Australia has previously stated that he aims to play for Australia and represent them in the ICC T20 World Cup 2020 but he selected for Pakistan for upcoming Australia tour.
Misbah is particularly impressed with Qadir’s bowling and wants to make use of his experience of having played in Australia.
“Usman is playing T20 cricket, and we saw a spark in his bowling and we think that his bowling got the potential and variation,” said Misbah.
Here’s Twitter reaction:
Travesty of justice – a player who never aspired to play for Pakistan gets a place but a player @iamfawadalam25 who aspired to play doesn't! While Captain gets the axe as a bait for blame which was really on selector! Nepotism & ethnocentric provincialism! https://t.co/9oUfWngZFm

Usman Qadir seriously? The guy was dispatched all over the park in the last BBL. Can only bowl poor flighted deliveries

Just under one year ago Usman Qadir was on his way to playing for Australia after playing for The Australian Prime-Minister's XI versus South Africa. In a couple of weeks he could be playing for Pakistan against Australia #AUSvPAK #Cricket pic.twitter.com/vPZ5uz4mc7

Good teams TBH. Glad with the selection of Musa, Nasim Shah, Hasnain and Bhatti. But overall there are few unjust selections in the squad.
1- What did Usman Qadir do to get selected in Pakistan T20 squad?
2- Why is Fakher Zaman still in the team?

Another story of favoritism begins. #Sarfaraz was removed because Misbah and Waqar didn't like him. Usman Qadir, a friend of Babar Azam, just made it into the team when Babar became captain. It's not too far when his cousins Kamran and Umar Akmal make a comeback, again. pic.twitter.com/I69FtHh590

September 2018: “No more Pakistan. I want to play for Australia definitely, 100 per cent.”
October 2019: Selected to play for Pakistan v Australia.

So they selected Usman Qadir who had just 4 wickets in 3 matches instead of Zahid Mahmood who picked up 8 wickets in 4 matches. Misbah bhai 🙏
