Malik hopes he will get a fair chance if selected to play for Pakistan.


Shoaib Malik feels it was time he got his fair share of chances and said his aim was to play for Pakistan in the ICC World Cup in Australia and New Zealand early next year.

Malik, who has played 216 ODIs for the 1992 world champions is currently in India, playing for Australia's Hobart Hurricanes in the Champions League Twenty20. While the former Pakistan captain hasn't set the stage on fire, an unbeaten 45 off 22 balls was key to the Hurricanes' victory against Northern Knights on Tuesday.

Malik has never been a permanent feature in the Pakistan line-up but with the Pakistan Cricket Board cracking the whip on unfit players and fining T20 captain Shahid Afridi over fitness issues, there is a realistic chance Malik may get a chance to make the World Cup cut.
