This is not cricket..!

This is not cricket…Mian Muhammmad Nawaz Sharif.

Now, the PCB headed by the genius media man Mr. Najam Sethi; and its most highly paid selection committee, has devised an ingenious method to perpetuate its favouritism and nepotism policy, to include Shan Masood (son of Mr. Mansoor M. Khan member BoG of PCB & chairman audit committee of the PCB), at every cost, in the squad for Test matches vs the Sri Lankan team.

The squad usually consists of 15 members, but this time it consists of 16 members, notwithstanding the fact that Dubai is just few hours flight from Pakistan and for such a weak opponent, sending 16 members squad was a sheer waste of PCB’s valuable resources.

The nation has a right to ask the PCB chairman and its team of selectors, on what basis they dropped Sami Aslam and included Shan Masood from the West Indian tour, when during the team’s tour of England the batting average of Sami Aslam was 55 runs agains 12 runs batting average of Shan Masood.

In all fairness, this selection committee is not a fair minded committee believing in intellectual honesty; and may be thinking that people don’t know that how undeserving players are made to look like super stars, by repeatedly, repeat repeatedly, giving them opportunities to play against weak teams, like West Indies and Sri Lanka.

Moreover, inclusion of Sami Aslam in the squad for Test matches vs the Sri Lankan team, after dropping him from the squad of the Caribbean tour (please note in between Sami Aslam and Pakistani team didn’t play any Test match) proves that the selectors in the first instance, wrongly favoured Shan Masood by selecting him for the Caribbean tour and Sami Aslam was made to suffer, because he has no relative serving, in the BoG of the PCB.

Now, coming to Mr. Najam Sethi’s stance that since, he knows nothing about cricket, he wants to tell the selection committee to not even put the papers to him for his final approval of the team.

This stance doesn’t absolve Mr. Najam Sethi of his constitutional responsibilities, where the chairman PCB must approve the team selected by committee of selectors.

Moreover, this also proves that Mr. Najam Sethi should be doing anything but, heading the PCB.

Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, salute to you for handing over the PCB to Mr. Najam Sethi, blatantly violating the cardinal rule of putting the right man, at the right job.

Mr. Ex. Prime Minister of Pakistan for three times, if you can’t do the right appointment in an extremely important national organisation (where the chairman himself admitted in a TV interview that he knew nothing about cricket), how you are again asking to be made the PM of the country, for the fourth time?

Pakistan team: Sarfraz Ahmed (c), Azhar Ali, Shan Masood, Sami Aslam, Babar Azam, Asad Shafiq, Haris Sohail, Usman Salahuddin, Yasir Shah, Mohammad Asghar, Bilal Asif, Mir Hamza, Mohammad Amir, Hasan Ali, Mohammad Abbas, Wahab Riaz
