In the recently concluded Test series against Australia, Pakistan's pace battery was more than just horrible. Even the former Australian great Ricky Ponting called the pace department ‘the worst he witnessed in a long time’. As a result, the Kangaroos scored a pile of runs to thump Pakistan in the red-ball series.
For this reason, the cricket pundits want the selection committee to look towards the senior bowlers of the domestic circuit. Nevertheless, former Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur isn’t finding any reason to land himself in a plain of agreement.
The 51-year old, while discussing the case of quicks like Tabish Khan, Aizaz Cheema and Sohail Khan, said that they shouldn’t be brought back in the national team.
Explaining the rationale behind his comments, Mickey said that the three pacers are too old to be considered for the national reckoning. Tabish 34 Aizaz 40 and Sohail 35 all are top domestic performers. However, the Johannesburg born added that you cannot build your red-ball cricket’s future on players who aren’t going to be there for long.
