Inzamam ul Haq speaks on Shahid Afridi and Abdul Razzaq selection in Pakistan Cricket Team T20I Squad Against Australia Cricket Team 2017. Inzamam Ul Haq has made it very clear again that he is willing to take any player in the team who is fit and has performances on his back. He said that the doors of PCB and cricket team are open to every player who is playing in and for Pakistan. Inzamam in his recent interview on a TV show has said that there are a lot of confusion in the minds of the fans. He wants to first clear it. He said that PCB has not closed its doors to any of the players. He said that every player is welcome in the PCB.
Inzamam said that this is not right to say that Afridi and Razzaq careers are over and to somewhat destroyed by the PCB. He said that their own performances will matter and are the evidence to what they are dealing at the moment. Inzamam said that Afridi is not playing domestic cricket. He is in England playing the county cricket. Razzaq left cricket a long time ago so these are clear indications that their time is up now. He did not comment on the one last game for Afridi issue. That is one confusion which Inzamam is not part of. There are many other factors involved in it. There are people in the PCB who don’t want to give Afridi this one last game. They have their reasons but their actions are not right. Pakistan selection committee head Inzamam is pretty clear about all the players who are currently playing or not playing. As per him the criteria to get back in the Pakistan team is performance and fitness. There will be no steeping back from these two conditions.
Inzamam cleared out all the confusions about the selection process. He said that he and his members chose only those players who are performing and are physically fit as well. He said that coach Mickey Arthur wants the same. He said that people think that it is PCB which is not willing to take Shahid Afridi and Abdul Razzaq in the team. This is absolutely wrong. Afridi and Razzaq both can join the team if they meet the two conditions stated by him.Inzamam said that Afridi is currently in England playing for the Hampshire. When he will get back and play the domestic cricket then he will have a look at his performances. If they are good then he will be taken in the team. Razzaq has not played cricket for a very long time now. So his chances are low for making a comeback.
