‘Tum professional cricketer hu ya joker hu’ – Fans react as Shahnawaz Dahani asks former Pakistan skipper Rashid Latif about his ODI stats


Pakistan pacer Shahnawaz Dahani doesn’t seem to be happy with his non-selection for the ODI series against Afghanistan and Asia Cup 2023. He played his last game for the senior side in ODI and T20I cricket last year. Dahani is yet to play Test matches. He recently played for Pakistan A in the Emerging Asia Cup 2023.

Apart from this, the 2021 PSL winner is playing for Dambulla Aura in the Lanka Premier League 2023. The Sindh player took to Twitter and wrote ‘Seems as if Dahani is not a Pakistani pacer’. This tweet was made in response to former Pakistan skipper Rashid Latif’s tweet that reads

In reply, Latif said
