While shedding light on the subject Haroon said, “You have to see which players can fit in your current combination.

However, if a young player performs the same role, it can be debatable. But I have kept my position open regarding this topic and have not formed a specific strategy. Once my selection panel is formed, we will come with a specific selection policy.
