KARACHI: Pakistan's experienced batter Shoaib Malik called out the national team for preferring friendships over merit.
Malik, who was dropped from the squad for T20 Asia Cup 2022, felt that liking and disliking destroyed the team.
"When will we come out from friendship, liking & disliking culture. Allah always helps the honest," Malik wrote on Twitter after Pakistan lost to Sri Lanka by 23 runs in T20 Asia Cup 2022 final.
While chasing 171 runs, Pakistan could only score 147 runs. Sri Lanka displayed quality performance to lift their sixth Asia Cup title.
