Junaid Khan slammed Imam-ul-Haq for his comments on the selection of Iftikhar Ahmed and Haris Sohail. It is worth mentioning here the fact that the opening batter while answering a question during the recently concluded #PAKvsNZ ODI series said that there was no need for middle-order batters like Iftikhar and Haris in the world cup squad.
Junaid Khan Comes Down Hard On Imam-ul-Haq
Cricket Pakistan while quoting Junaid reported him as saying, “When Imam wasn’t a part of the World Cup squad, he used to sit on television and share his analysis, which in my opinion, is wrong – PCB shouldn’t have permitted that. If Imam criticized anyone or pointed fingers at others, it would eventually impact the team’s unity. But apparently, we are far away from acknowledging these factors.
“Imam started giving his personal opinions even during pressers. He said Haris and Iftikhar shouldn’t play. Neither he is captain nor a vice-captain – so how can he give such opinions?”
