Shoaib Malik rubbishes grouping allegations

WEB DESK: Shoaib Malik rubbishes all grouping allegations as he again stated that the team was united. “It’s just the defeats which raise questions.”

He said skipper Shahid Afridi was like an elder brother to him. He always respected him like he respected former skippers Inzimam ul Haq, Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis.

“I will be happier if won the title under Afridi’s captaincy,” he said.

He said when you get defeated then such rumours get flourish. I would not be grouping for captaincy.

Separately, doosra inventor Saqlain Mushtaq said: “Sometimes there are bad patches and periods for players, and for hitters. It is not necassary that they would come out and hit in every game. He always tried and when it came on the bat properly, it went for a six, so that is how it is. We have always seen off all our legends properly.”
