Shoaib Mailk will be back at the Caribbean Premier League in 2018, but with a different team. Having played for the Barbados Tridents for the last five years he will line up for the Guyana Amazon Warriors for the 2018 tournament. While Malik has his sights firmly set on CPL he has longer term plans for his international career.
“The 2019 World Cup, 50 over cricket, is my last World Cup, but I want to play in the World T20 in 2020, that is my goal for Twenty20 cricket. These are the two big goals which I’m looking at – let’s see how it goes. If I’m consistently performing then I want to play these two World Cups.”
Malik says that playing in the Caribbean is something that is very special to him and something he has always enjoyed.
“No matter in what island you’re playing in, if you look at the people from the Caribbean, they’re loving people and they’re very entertaining. It’s so much fun being in and playing in the Caribbean, not just in the CPL or if you’re playing any international series there. I’ve been playing there for the last 5 years for Barbados Tridents. I had so much fun in Barbados,” he said in a statement on Wednesday.
