Pakistan Tour of England 2016: Shahid Afridi, Ahmed Shehzad & Umar Akmal dropped


The newly-appointed chief selector Inzmam-ul-Haq on Monday shortlisted 35-players for the fitness and training camp for England tour, surprisingly, Umar Akmal, Ahmed Shehzad and Shahid Afridi were dropped from the list of probable players for England tour.


While taking at the presser, the chief selector told that Umar Akmal and Shehzad were dropped from the side over lack of discipline, “Shehzad and Umar don’t have enough performances and lack discipline,” said Inzamam. “Wherever there will be a disciplinary problem, we will take a step. And you should expect this selection committee to be a little stern on discipline.”

He also elaborated his decision of dropping Shahid Afridi from the side by saying that,”Pakistan will play only six T20Is in the coming 14 months so we are thinking of trying new players. Meanwhile, Afridi will also take some rest and if he performs after that, the doors of selection are always open.”

On the other hand, Shahid Afridi have also appreciated chief selectors move and have also vowed for a strong comeback in the side.
