Pakistan’s chief selector Inzamam Ul Haq has made it pretty clear that there are no other criteria except for performance and discipline. Even if players like Shahid Afridi and Abdul Razzaq gives some good number of performances then they will be a part of the team.
Inzamam while sitting in a TV show put a lot of stress on performance. He said that without decent performances from the players there is no chance that the team can perform better and holds some good stands against other teams.
Inzamam said that there are a bunch of players who came to him and told him that they have done well enough in international cricket. As per Inzamam, none of the players said that his performance was on the average side
In reply to all of them, Inzamam put one simple question that if the performances were good enough, then how come Pakistan team is rattling at number 9 is the ICC ODI rankings?
Inzamam also touched the subject of Shahid Afridi and Abdul Razzaq. He said that every player is still welcome on the team. The doors are not shut to any particular name. If Afridi and Razzaq show the section committee some decent performances then they will be picked up immediately for the national team.
