Sami Aslam to move USA after being ignored for national team


Lahore: Left-handed opener Sami Aslam is moving to the United States of America (USA) to try his luck there, after being ignored for the national team. 

According to the sources, Sami will not be available for the fourth round of ongoing Quaid-e-Azam Trophy 2020-21. The cricketer has informed Balochistan’s team management and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) via email.

Sources further told that Sami informed the cricket board at the very last moment which is a breach of contract due to leaving the domestic season halfway.

Earlier, Sami expressed disappointment after being ignored for the New Zealand tour despite scoring runs in domestic cricket. Sami represented Pakistan in 13 Tests and scored 758 runs at an average of 31.58. He was dropped from the national team without getting any game on England tour in 2018.

Following Sami’s decision to leave the domestic season, Balochistan team will be given an option to pick a replacement.
