Shoaib Malik:

Shoaib Malik whose career is glittering with some great participation in the world of cricket showed some noble fortunes and feelings towards the selection of World XI team.

Malik said:

“It’s the matter of great pride and honor to be selected in an ICC World XI and wonderful opportunity to play along with and against the biggest names in the cricket fertility.”

Moreover, he said, ”Despite as the chance of figuring in World XI vs Windies 2018, I also see it as an opportunity to contribute to a meaningful excuse. We have all heard of the massive damage caused by the two worst hurricanes in the Carribean and I’m glad to see most of the big names are interested in raising the funds for the revival of those stadiums.

Considering the importance and memories at the Lords cricket stadium, Multan Sultans captain said:

“That the match is being played at Lord’s makes the event even bigger for me. Lord’s is one of the most cheered stadiums in the world without a doubt, but I also have some delightful memories over there. One that really makes me feel proud is the one the chase along with Shahid Afridi when we beat Sri Lanka in 2009 final.”
