Twitter rejoices as Shoaib Malik is included in T20 World Cup Squad!

Reactions are pouring in on the microblogging platform after Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Saturday announced that all-rounder Shoaib Malik has been named in the Pakistan squad for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

Shoaib Malik, 39, replaces Sohaib Maqsood. He was ruled out due to a back injury he got during the National T20 Cup.

As being reported, Sohaib underwent MRI scans for the lower back on Thursday after picking up the injury during the October 6 match against Northern and consequently missed the October 7 match against Central Punjab.

Shoaib Malik captained Pakistan in the inaugural event in 2007 and was a member of the side that won the tournament in 2009.

He missed the West Indies event in 2010 but featured in 2012, 2014, and 2016 tournaments.

On Oct. 8, he became the only third batter to go past 11,000 runs in men’s T20s.

So now Shoaib Malik is to play in yet another T20 World Cup and here is how Twitter reacts to the news:
