Shadab responds to the comment “Injuries playing for money in leagues”

Pakistan’s white-ball vice-captain Shadab Khan has responded to the criticism he has faced over his injury in the ongoing Big Bash League (BBL).

The star all-rounder, who plays for the Hobart Hurricanes in the ongoing edition of the BBL, was injured during a match against the Adelaide Strikers.

The injury not only forced the right-hander to miss the rest of the BBL but also forced him to miss the three-match ODI series against New Zealand.

After the Shahid Afridi-led selection committee announced the squad for the ODI series, a cricket fan slammed the cricketer for playing in the league.

“Playing foreign leagues for money. Wounding. Missing national team matches,” one of the fans tweeted while tagging the cricket star.

Responding to this, the 24-year-old cricketer wrote on his Twitter account, “Wherever I am selected for the national team, I will play for the country.”

Shadab said the Big Bash League helped him perform well in the T20 World Cup in Australia as playing in different conditions helps players improve.

The sportsman said in another tweet: “Finger injuries can happen at any time, anyone can be hit by the ball in practice be it Australia or Pakistan.
