Birmingham: Chairman PCB Shahryar Khan says “We are closely observing Umar Akmal and Ahmad Shehzad’s attitude. As long as we are not satisfied they both cannot join the team.”
PCB chairman said “The One-Day squad against England will be announced in a day or two.” When asked regarding Umar Akmal and Ahmad Shehzad’s return he replied “As long as both the players don’t mend their ways they can’t be included in the team.”
It may be noted that PCB’s selection committee had earlier kept both the players out of the England series because of their negative attitude and they don’t stand a chance to be part of the ODI team. The duo is also not part of the high performance camp at the NCA, currently in progress, from which players will be selected for the ODI series against England.
The five match ODI series between Pakistan and England will start on the 24th of August.
