Pakistan`s chief selector Mohsin Khan has responded clearly to Ex- skipper Wasim Akram`s criticism on the selection of the national team for the forthcoming tour of Zimbabwe. Mohsin says he was upset with Akram`s remarks that the selectors required to show regularity in selecting newer cricketers and that they shouldn’t have dropped fast bowlers — Umar Gul, Tanvir Ahmad and Wahab Riaz — for the Zimbabwe tour.
“I am upset simply because Wasim doesn’t spend enough time in Pakistan and isn’t informed of what the national selectors are considering or their line of strategy and steps,” says Mohsin. He also advised to the previous quick bowler to mind his own business and not to make half-baked arguments on the issues like national squad selection.
“I think he’s no business to give this kind of irresponsible remarks without understanding the details about national selection. I would advise him to extra some moment and talk to us and understand about our plans and our long term planning before making this kind of harmful remarks,”Mohsin Khan says.
Stating that Wasim Akram was only hectic with his commitments overseas as a broadcaster and expert, Mohsin Khan said, “It is not fair that he returns to the country after 3 or 4 months and without understanding the details, give remarks about the national squad.
Mohsin Khan, who played 48 Tests and 75 ODIs, advised wasim Akram to assist the country in whatever ability possible, instead of just making remarks.
