The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has come under fire from former wicket-keeper Rashid Latif for leaving Imad Wasim out of the team for the five-match ODI series against New Zealand.
Rashid Latif said in a media interview that the left-handed all-rounder’s inclusion in only the T20I format, despite his prior success, is blatantly unfair.
Imad Wasim, according to the wicket-keeper, was not admitted through the back door but rather after demonstrating his exceptional form and skills in local cricket.
Latif noted that there have always been differences between star players on elite teams in cricket in response to a query about Imad and Babar.
The 54-year-old bowler did, however, add that if there are conflicts between players, they shouldn’t show on the pitch or in their play as they represent their nation.
“There won’t be a problem right now, but based on performance, there might be one later. Both are reasonable men, so there shouldn’t be any issues, Rashid Latif continued.
It is noteworthy that Imad Wasim, who performed admirably in club cricket, was re-inducted into the national team for the recent T20I series against Afghanistan.
