Pakistani cricketing great Javed Miandad has lashed out at the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for consistently giving chances to players who fail to perform over a long period of time. Giving the example of England and Australia, Miandad claimed PCB was guilty of selecting players who have repeatedly disappointed in the international arena.
''The player who performs for the country is the one that matters. In England and Australia, there is a series-to-series evaluation of your performances so if you fail in one series then they will forget that you had scored 500 runs in the past. Only in Pakistan will you see a player playing 10 innings after scoring a century,” he said.
Miandad’s comments come in response to out-of-favour batsman Ahmed Shehzad’s remark that he has the potential to serve Pakistan for another 12 years. Miandad noted that mediocrity should not be tolerated in any form at the highest level when representing Pakistan.
