Abdul Razzaq, the all-rounder of Pakistan cricket team explained that without any reason, he has dropped from Twenty20 World Championship by the selectors as well as the board was not treating the senior player well. Opener Imran Farhat have and all-rounder Abdul Razzaq condemned the national selection committee of showing a biased attitude in their cases and have hinted at joining the ICL in the near future as well.

Pakistan Cricket Board is creating an anxious environment for the senior players which are forcing them to quit cricket. If the board continues with the same attitude towards the players, many of them will join the Indian Cricket League (ICL).

Rumours are rife that the senior players Abdul Razzaq, Mohammad Yousuf, Imran Farhat and Azhar Mahmood have already signed agreements with the Indian Cricket League (ICL).

Opener, Imran Farhat, officially requested the PCB to release him from the players’ central contract because he believed he could not get justice from the current selection committee. Imran is the top scorer of the last Patron’s Cup OD events but why he is still being left out of the Twenty20 World Cup? Imran Farhat was being penalized for questioning the selectors about his omission from the off-shore in Abu Dhabi in April this year is reflects a biased mind-set of the selectors and so Imran have decided not to play until the time a new set up is in place. Imran Farhat disclosed that he has written a letter to the PCB to clear his dues form the last central contract. The PCB has suspended the central contract of the players form April for not showing good performance in the World Cup in the West Indies, but since I was not a part of that squad, my last contract should have remained valid.

Salahuddin Ahmed, the Chief selector, when contracted, refused to comment on the players’ statements.

He would not like to indulge in such discussions and he believes the selectors took all the decisions with fairness and in the best interest of Pakistan Cricket.
