“Respect Element Shouldn’t Be Missing”: Malik
“(I believe) the respect element shouldn’t be missing. I’ve seen Amir, Imad, Babar… whenever they meet, they greet each other with respect,” said Karachi Kings batter Shoaib Malik in the post-match press conference.
“In this room, you won’t be compatible in the same way with everyone. Some would gel up well, you’d like some and you might not like some others. But that would only be on professional basis. I’m sure you all respect each other too.
“It’s good for the league. Once you enter the league, you need to focus on what encourages you to deliver your best. But we know no one crosses the line,” Malik added.
