LAHORE - Former Pakistan captain Shoaib Malik may have been ignored for the New Zealand tour as result of the teams loss in the Hong Kong Super Sixes final under his captaincy last month. A former cricketer said Malik may have been ignored by the selectors for the New Zealand because of the loss in Hong Kong tournament. Malik scored three centuries in domestic cricket recently and was seen in great form. Malik was captain and in the final opponents Australia required 48 runs in the final over to win the match. Imran Nazir a part time bowler was given the ball and incredibly even in the super sixes format he conceded 48 runs bowling number of wides and no-balls in the decisive over, he said. If a player has scored three big hundreds in succession in domestic cricket he is always a serious contender but in Maliks case his ouster may also be linked to non-cricketing reasons, he said. Malik himself told the media that he was extremely disappointed at not making the team. What more do I have to do to prove myself. I have scored nearly 580 runs in five innings with three centuries and I have taken 14 wickets for PIA in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy and if this not enough to win me a place back in the team I dont know what is, Malik was quoted as saying. If the selectors are not considering me when I am in prime form then I think I am within my right to at least ask them to tell me on what grounds I have not been picked in the touring squad, Malik said.
