PCB chief selector says no intentions of ending career of Razzaq
Islamabad: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief selector Iqbal Qasim has insisted that the board has no intentions to end the career of all-rounder Abdul Razzaq after the player was excluded from the preliminary squad for the ICC Champions Trophy.
The exclusion of Razzaq, who was also sidelined for the team`s tour to India along with Shahid Afridi, who, however, is in the Champions Trophy list, has given rise to talks of his exit from international cricket.
According to sources close to the player, the all-rounder, who has played 265 one day matches, is depressed and has thus sidelined himself from domestic tournaments.
Stating that isolating himself was not a solution for any cricketer, the chief selector said that a cricketer cannot stay away from the field for too long and added that they cannot consider Razzaq until they see him on the field to assess his form and fitness.
Qasim further said that Razzaq can also make a comeback by proving his worth in domestic cricket, adding that the same applies to Younis Khan, who also had been dropped from the preliminary squad.
