Pak selectors angry with PCB for ignoring them after T20 World Cup win

Posted By: Staff

Lahore, June 29 (ANI): The national selectors, who picked the Pakistan squad that won the Twenty20 World Cup, are angry that they have been completely ignored in the celebrations for the team's triumph.

Although former chief selector Abdul Qadir has resigned from his job, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has not clarified the status of Saleem Jaffer and Shoaib Mohammad who were on the selection committee that picked the World Cup squad.

The board had appointed an interim selection committee headed by former captain Wasim Bari to pick the team for the Test tour of Sri Lanka.

"No one has the decency to even invite us for any celebratory event even though our contribution is clear that we picked the winning side," one selector said.

Qadir, who resigned from his post in acrimonious circumstances while the team was playing in the Twenty20 World Cup, has also castigated the board for their treatment of the selectors.

"No matter what they do they can't take away the credit from us that we picked the World Cup winning squad," the Daily Times quoted Qadir, as saying. (ANI)
