Critics were harsh on comeback men Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Akmal, who failed to get going in the first T20I against Sri Lanka. Shehzad back in the T20I team after over a year made just four runs while Umar playing in this format for the national team for the first time since late 2016, was out for a first-ball duck as a second-string Sri Lankan side upset Pakistan. The head coach said that all experiments are being done keeping the next year’s World T20 in mind.
