World Cup: Aaqib blames selectors for Pakistan’s poor show


KARACHI: Former Pakistan fast bowler Aaqib Javed has blamed the selectors for the team’s poor show in the World Cup, ARY Sports reports.

Javed, in an interview to a foreign news agency, said that the team is playing the World Cup without any practice. He added that those who were trained for the mega-event were not inducted to the side.

The fast bowler, criticizing the selectors for dropping Sohail Khan and Wahab Riaz, asked that why the two pacers were dropped from the squads playing against Australia and New Zealand in UAE if they were to play the World Cup.

“What is the rocket science of including Younus Khan if he is not contributing runs with the bat”, Javed asked.

He also criticized the selectors for not including Sarfraz Ahmed in the playing XI against India and West Indies.

“It seems as if everyone is blaming each other for the team’s bad performance in the World Cup”, he added.
