Ahmed Shehzad disagrees with Mohammad Haris recent statements after not being on the Pakistan T20 squad, for the Series against New Zealand, Ireland, and England. According to updates, Mohammad Haris will maybe not be part of the Pakistan World Cup squad.

Before the World Cup starts, Pakistan will play three and four Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) against England and Ireland, respectively, using an 18-man roster.

When Haris played against South Africa in the T20 World Cup 2022, he made his debut and gave the Pakistani squad a much-needed boost. In the semi-final, he led his team to the final and was a standout player against New Zealand.

But he hasn’t played for Pakistan since last year; his last game came against New Zealand in April 2023.

Shehzad justified Haris’ exclusion from the T20I squad saying he hasn’t performed enough in recent times which is why he wasn’t picked by the selectors.

I think Mohammad Haris doesn’t have any performances so he didn’t make the cut [for Ireland T20Is]. He made a 50 in PSL and then he was brought in [in the Pakistan Team]. People campaign for him but he didn’t do anything worthy – scored 23 and 25 in World Cup. People struggle for eight, ten years but still don’t get an opportunity,” Shehzad said.

He then added that players who rely on social media campaigns to get back in the squad would suffer from its consequences.

“People say let him play four-day cricket. None of the departments picked up and people are still campaigning for him. Believe me, this will backfire on him. All these campaigns against all these players will go against them,” he further added.
