Malik set to lose his PCB central contract?
The PCB selectors are going to meet the chairman later this month to present a list of names of the players they want to persist with for the upcoming important season that includes World Cup 2011. After getting penalized by the PCB for his involvement in off-the-field activities and raising politics in the team, Shoaib was got selected in the team on the recommendation of Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani, but the all-rounder has failed to cement his position in the team. As nothing is final with the PCB chairman, Ijaz Butt, who is notorious for taking u-turns on his statements, Shoaib might sneak away with another touch of politics, but Ijaz has made it clear some days ago that Shoaib would only find himself in the team if selectors approve him. Shoaib has scored only 89 runs in the three Test matches he has played in England, two against hosts and one against Australia. Prior to this tour, Shoaib scored only 46 runs in the last month's Asia Cup, a performance that clearly speaks of his poor form.
