Veteran Cricketers Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Hafeez get a blow from the PCB
ISLAMABAD - Veteran Cricketers Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Hafeez get a blow from the Pakistan Cricket Board.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Thursday announced the names of players who have been awarded central contracts for the year 2019-20.
All-rounders Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik have not been awarded contracts "but they will remain available for selection", a PCB press release said.
Malik and Hafeez were criticised for poor performance in the recent Cricket World Cup, where Pakistan failed to qualify for the semifinals due to low net run rate.
After Pakistan's disqualification, Malik had announced his retirement from one-day international cricket.
