Abdul Qadir, known as the master of Leg-spinner criticised PCB for quite a few things in a recent interview with Express-News. He questioned the selection criteria and reasons behind dropping Umar Akmal. According to him, Najam Sethi & PCB conspired against Akmal family to throw them out of the team.
Umar and Kamran both came under severe scrutiny during Micky Arthur’s reign as the head coach. Kamran Akmal was primarily left out for his inconsistency, whereas Umar was left out for disciplinary reasons and his fitness issues. Abdul Qadir raised the following points during his interview with Mirza Iqbal Baig.
Yasir Shah Ka Itna Bara Pait Hai! 😛
He raised a question on Yasir Shah’s selection. He mentioned “Uska Itna Bara Pait Hai” then why is he there in the team. He did not question his performance, he believed he is selected because he is performing well for the team. So even with such physical appearance, Micky Arthur continues to select him in the squad. However, he raises issues against Umar Akmal’s fitness and keeps him out of the team.
Inzi Did Not Let Imran Tahir In The Team 🙁
He also claimed that Inzamam-ul-Haq did not let Imran Tahir in the team. Due to his decision Pakistan lost a great talent and if his son does not get a chance in the team and leaves to represent some other country, it will be PCB and Sethi who should be held responsible for the loss.
Furthermore he asked Akmal’s to take Legal action against Sethi, Inzi & Mickey;

He said after Hanif Mohammad, Akmal brothers are the biggest cricketing family in Pakistan. They are playing all the leagues and English county but still gets ignored by the management. He believes their father should file a case against Arthur, Inzamam and Najam Sethi for conspiring against the family.
