In light of this, I hope they perform well and cross my fingers, although Atiq expressed doubt about a speedy resolution.

Reacting to this, the former captain underlined that Shaheen Afridi should have been selected for every World Cup match, but instead the management continued to do so.

“They should have dropped him and gone with another player if he wasn’t disciplined,” Butt said.
