Former chief selector urges PCB to probe changes to T20 squad

Toronto, Oct 13 (UNI) Former Chief Selector Salahuddin Ahmed has urged the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to take action against the officials responsible for the changes to the 15-member national squad for the Toronto T20 cricket tournament.

''Many days have passed since the team was named and then it came to the surface that the squad was tempered and the name of spinner Saeed Ajmal was erased and another player added without considering any merit,'' 'The News' quoted Ahmed as saying here yesterday.

''We selected the team which was duly signed by two other selectors, Sahfqat Rana and Saleem Jaffar and we handed it over to Chief Operating Officer of PCB, Shafqat Naghmi who sent to Sports Ministry for final approval,'' he added.

Ahmed further stated that he was happy to see that new PCB chairman Ijaz Butt has ordered a probe into the matter and he is confident that the officials who are responsible for making the changes will be punished.
