Pakistan’s Test cricketer Khurram Manzoor is one of those players who remained an iconic performer in the domestic circuit, but never really blossomed in the International cricket. Playing 16 Tests and 13 ODIs for Pakistan, the opening batsman averages 28.17 and 33.71 respectively which really doesn’t justify his talent.
One of the questionable events of Pakistan cricket was his removal from the national team right after the notorious tour of Australia in 2010. Despite providing a useful contribution in the second innings of the Hobart Test, the domestic stalwart was dropped from the national team. Recently, Khurram opened up about his ouster from the national team as he went on to blame former Pakistan captain Waqar Younis.
The 33-year old believes that he wasn’t in good books of Waqar and that’s why he was axed despite having earned his chance. In addition to this, Khurram has no plans to give up as he is confident about making it back to the green team. On the other hand, Waqar who is frontrunner to become Pakistan’s bowling coach is yet to break silence on this allegation.
