Inzamam questions team selection

LAHORE – Former Pakistan captain Inzamamul Haq has questioned the selection of Pakistan cricket team for South Africa tour and said in his opinion, the team was not selected in consultation with Test and One-day captain.
He told reporters here on Thursday, Inzamam said: “I think the combination of the team is not well-balanced especially we lack in bowling as we are short of one fast bowler in the challenging tour of South Africa. In my opinion, the captain of Test and ODI was consulted regarding the team selection.”
Inzamam pointed out that Pakistan team toured India with five fast bowlers and the team selected for the tour of South Africa had four pace bowlers including Umar Gul, Ehsan Adil, Junaid Khan and Umar Gul. “South Africa tour is a long tour in which the team will be playing three Test, five one-day internationals and two Twenty20 games and I believe there should have been one more fast bowler to add fire in our pace battery,” he believed.
He said pace bowler would play a leading role to lift the performance level of the team during the Africa tour where wickets favour fast bowlers.
The former captain expressed his desire to serve the team as a batting consultant saying his services are available for bringing improvement in the batting. “I could not accompany the team during the tour of India as a batting consultant as I was having a contract with a private TV channel. Before the tour of India, PCB chairman Chaudhry Zaka Asrhaf asked me to accompany the team to India and South Africa but after the return of the team from India, no one from PCB contacted me in this regard.”
To a query, he replied: “I have no issue of money or on any other point with the PCB to serve the team as a batting consultant. If the board asks me to accompany the team, I will do so because I want to see improvement in our batting line. I have no difference with any one – neither any one in PCB nor with the team management.”
Inzmam said victory and defeat went hand in hand and in case of defeat, the team should not be disappointed because such a feeling will restrict them from making a come back.
The former captain termed the statement of Federation of International Cricket (FICA), players association, regarding Pakistan Super League ‘surprising’. “It is the moral obligation of the all the Pakistani cricketers to join hands for making PSL a successful event by extending all-out cooperation,” he concluded.
