He added “This will also allow me to focus on T20 cricket”. Furthermore Malik made his ODI debut in 1999 in a match against West Indies in Sharjah and he has played 287 matches and scored 7,534 runs at an average of 34.55. He has nine ODI centuries to his name and was captain when pakistan reached the final of the 2007 World T20 where they lost to india. While he was no longer the skipper in 2009, Malik was still a key figure when pakistan won the World T20 under the captaincy of Younis Khan. 



Moreover he had a bad outing at the 2019 World Cup however, scoring just eight runs in three matches including back to back ducks against australia and india and was not part of the playing XI for pakistan's final group game against bangladesh on Friday but was given a guard of honor by his team mates at the end of it.
