Posted By: Staff

Karachi, Mar.27 (ANI): Pakistan cricket chief selector Mohsin Khan has said that discipline, fitness and performance are the prime criterias based on which he selects players, and assured that as long as he is heading the Pakistan Cricket Board's selection panel there would be no discrimination in the selection procedure.

"I will select players only on merit. No deserving cricketer will be discriminated as long as I am heading the selection committee. I was also discriminated in my cricketing days so I know how it feels to be discriminated," The Dawn quoted Khan, as saying.

Khan said he would never compromise on discipline and fitness while selecting a player.

"My criteria of selecting players are discipline, fitness and performance and I will not compromise on any of it," he said.

Khan said playing for the country and not for personal gains should be the priority for all players.

"The glory of the country should always be the top priority of the players. They should tell themselves that they are playing for the country which is glorious itself and that money is only a bonus with it," he said. (ANI)
