Former cricket captain and director Muhammad Hafeez has lashed out at the selection committee, alleging that they chose a weak team with big names.

Talking to Express News, Hafeez criticized the current selection committee and said, “The selection committee has tried to strengthen the team by calling the players sitting at home.”

Talking about Babar Azam’s captaincy he said, “Babar was removed from the captaincy for some reason but then made captain again. When Babar was the captain, he was accused of favoring every group.”


He said, “Shaheen Shah Afridi was removed from the captaincy within two months without any solid reason. I brought a four-year plan to improve the team, but I was removed from the post after two months.”

Muhammad Hafeez and former chairman PCB Ramiz Raja criticised Muhammad Amir’s return to the national team on several occasions, while selection committee member Wahab Riaz also termed the former cricketer’s statement as his personal opinion.
