Shoab Malik is a team-player like no other. He has been shifted up and down the batting order, and also filled in with his handy off-spinners. Malik’s best has always come out in the shorter forms of the game, doing especially well against Pakistan’s arch-rivals, India. His top three scores in ODIs have all come against them, one of them includes a century in the 2009 Champions Trophy. His understanding of the game proved vital in Pakistan lifting the Champions Trophy in 2017. Apart from representing the Tridents in the CPL, Malik has played for Hobart Hurricanes in the BBL and has also captained Multan Sultans in the Pakistan Super League.
