Inzamam justifies decision to rest key players

Pakistan’s selection committee decided to rest as many as 6 key players for the recently concluded ODI series against Australia in UAE, that saw them receive a hammering from the visitors. Unsurprisingly, this decision has received a lot of backlash from cricket supporters in the country and media, who have questioned the need for such a lax attitude ahead of competing against a quality side.

Chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq addressed this issue in a press conference, communicating to the reporters that this was the need of the hour ahead of the World Cup.

“These players needed rest before the World Cup and we have a hectic schedule in England going into the tournament that is why we rested them and we also wanted to try out our bench strength,” Inzamam stated.
