Pak selectors to seek feedback from coach, captain prior to Champions Trophy

Posted By: Staff

Lahore, Aug.20 (ANI): The Pakistan cricket selection committee led by chief selector Iqbal Qasim has decided to get a feedback from coach Intikhab Alam and captain Younis Khan before selecting the 15-man squad for the ICC Champions Trophy scheduled to be held in South Africa in September.

According to sources, Qasim has decided to consult both Alam and Younis Khan before picking the team for the mega event.

Sources said the selection committee is not happy with the performance of some of the senior players of the team and has reservations about them being picked in the team.

Younis Khan has already warned middle-order batsman Mohammad Yousuf, Misbah-ul-Haq and all-rounder Shoaib Malik over their dismal show during the Sri Lanka tour, the Dawn reports.

While Misbah played just three out of five ODIs scoring 91 runs, Yousuf and Malik scored just 53 and 21 runs respectively in the three games they played.

Sources said opener Salman Butt may be recalled, but if that be the case, both Alam and Khan would have to explain on what grounds he (Butt) was asked to pack his bags after the Sri Lanka est series which Pakistan lost 2-0. (ANI)
