Pakistan’s former batsman Mohammad Yousuf has backed the squad selected by the newly appointed chief selector of Pakistan cricket team and he believes that the players are selected on merit and have the skill set required to tackle the daunting conditions in England.
Speaking to PakPassion.net Yousuf appreciated the decision of PCB to make Inzamam as chief selector because he has the caliber to make sane decisions which will for the betterment of Pakistan cricket.
“To appoint someone as experienced as Inzamam-ul-Haq to any position in the PCB would have been a fantastic decision. It goes without saying that a person of such ability and caliber will only do the best for Pakistan in any capacity. I, like many others, know that whatever decisions Inzamam takes will be to uphold the honour of Pakistan so I am quite pleased with his appointment as Chief Selector.” said Mohammad Yousuf
“I have no reason to believe that they cannot do well. Inzamam-ul-Haq has chosen a squad which based upon his experience will be a good one for the upcoming conditions.” added Yousuf
Yousuf also wanted Shahid Afridi to call it a day and move on because he no longer deserves a spot in Pakistan side when asked regarding the former T20 skipper and flamboyant all rounder Shahid Afridi’s future in Pakistan cricket.
“I believe that Shahid Afridi’s best cricketing years are well behind him and he should have retired a long time ago. There really is no point in him continuing given that his performances are on the decline and of course, he isn’t getting any younger which cannot help.” said the former Pakistani batting great.
