Malik is a good T20 player when batting at 3 or 4. He rotates the strike and allows other players to go for big shots from the other end. He doesn't stutter the innings or allow dot balls to mount up. Yet in this tournament they have Malik batting down the order where big hitters are needed to accelerate the run rate and not innings stabilisers like Malik. One valid argument for the inclusion of Malik is his ability to bowl 4 tidy overs, he used to do it all the time. But Hafeez hasn't utilised Malik's bowling either. What's the point of playing Malik if we're not going to bowl him? We would be better off playing Sharjeel or bringing back Imran Nazir if all Malik is going to do is bat out of position without bowling. I have a sneaking suspicion that Malik is being set up to fail, certain people dont want him in the team as a batting all-rounder because that will put their own positions at risk.
