The Pakistan Cricket Board always remains in the discussion due to disputes with its players. The team’s senior bowler Wahab Riaz is upset due to being ignored for the series against England. Riaz says that he is very disappointed to not get a place in the team for the tour of England and West Indies. However, Riyaz has not given up his dream of playing in the T20 World Cup.
Riaz has taken the Pakistan Cricket Board on the mark. Riaz said that he is not aware of the plans of the Pakistan selectors for senior players. Wahab said, “I am disappointed to be left out of the team for the tours of England and West Indies after my recent performance. The scale of selection is a question for the selectors. But I think whoever performs well should be selected.
Riyaz is more disappointed with not getting a place in the team despite being a senior player. The pacer said, “He may have his reasons but as a senior player I am disappointed to have missed out on a place in the team.”
Questions raised on selectors’ plan
Riaz has taken a total of 237 wickets in 27 Tests, 91 ODIs and 36 T20 Internationals for Pakistan in international cricket. Riaz said, “I have not given up hope of playing in the T20 World Cup this year and I think as long as the senior players are fit and performing, their selection should be considered.”
Riyaz has raised questions on the selectors’ plan towards senior players. The star player said, “I don’t know what problem people have with senior players. Perhaps the youth listen to what they are told, while the seniors always have their say on matters and you have to convince them.
