Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi has raised questions about Pakistan’s selection policy. That said, playing for the national team was a lot easier. He said players should be selected in the team after spending some asons in domestic cricket. At one event, Afridi targeted the selection team for the Test and limited overs formats in the national team. He specifically criticized the limited-overs squad for the players and the Pakistan side.
“Playing for the national team is easy, but playing for the Pakistan team in the past is the highest goal of any professional cricketer,” Afridi said. It is very easy to find a place in the Pakistan team, players who have little experience in domestic cricket are also included in the squad and then dropped. All-rounder believes that every player must have at least two or three years of domestic cricket experience before being considered a national player.

Afridi said, ‘Why have we made it easier for players to represent the country. I get bored when a player gets a place on the national team after performing well in one or two matches in domestic cricket or Pakistan Super League. This is what it is. In domestic cricket you have to feed your cricketers. Afridi said batsmen and bowlers should be given at least two to three years of experience and only then should the selectors determine their talent, patience and ability to handle pressure.
