‘Rest in peace’ Pakistan team: Rashid Latif

Rashid Latif, a former Pakistani cricketer and commentator, has been critical of the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) new regime. Latif accused the new PCB regime of attempting to create division among senior players in the Pakistan team.

Former cricketer Rashid Latif launched a criticism against Najam Sethi, the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) management committee, and the Chief Selector, Haroon Rasheed, accusing them of destroying the Pakistan team’s combination. In a recent development, Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman, Haris Rauf, Mohammad Rizwan, and Shaheen Shah Afridi have been rested for the upcoming T20I series against Afghanistan in Sharjah. As a result, Shadab Khan will lead a young team in Babar’s absence.

Rashid Latif, former Pakistani cricketer, accused the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) of being unable to digest the recent success of Pakistani players, such as Babar and Shaheen, who won ICC awards and are now featured in the ICC rankings after a long time. He further criticized the PCB for allowing older individuals who need rest to make decisions about the future of Pakistan cricket, suggesting that this has led to the team’s poor performance. In a biting remark, Latif commented that the Pakistan team is now “resting in peace.”
