New Chief selector of PCB, Inzamam ul Haq on Monday announced a list of 35 probable players for the upcoming England tour and former T20 sensations skipper Shahid Afridi, Umar Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad’s name were not there.
Former Chief Selector, Haroon Rasheed also dropped many stars in first tour. Test of Inzi’s ability will be picking and sticking with the unknown players.
Former Great Batsman & Captain Inzamam-ul-Haq-led selection committee was in Faisalabad closely monitoring players’ performances during Pakistan Cup and shortlisted the names of 35 performers, announced in a Press Conference. He said:
“We are scheduled to play only six or so T20s in the coming year so we thought it is better to give chance to youngsters,”
“In the meantime, Afridi will also get some time to rest and hopefully will regain his form.”
“Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Akmal had discipline issues and their performances weren’t up to the mark either,” Inzamam said.
The selection committee has informed the PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan regarding the final-picked 35 players and it is likely that Afridi won’t be selected for the team’s training camp either.
Pakistan will start their England tour with the first Test scheduled on July 16, which will be followed by three more Tests, five ODIs and T20.
