Islamabad: Former Test cricketers have accused the Pakistan Cricket Board of lacking vision after South Africa recorded a comfortable 2-0 sweep of the Twenty20 internationals at Abu Dhabi.

Ex-Test leg-spinner Abdul Qadir said Thursday selectors picked the wrong combination for the shortest format of the game and players such as Mohammad Hafeez, Imran Farhat and Misbah-ul-Haq did not deserve a place in the lineup.

Qadir said Pakistan`s performance reflects that "PCB`s think tank is visionless and has no planning at all."

Former Test fast bowler Sarfraz Nawaz said the team needed young talent but the PCB preferred veterans and accused some of the older players of playing for themselves, not the team.
