While criticizing both former senior officials Riaz said, “Laptop chief selector [Wasim] was pretty poor at the job that he was doing. He didn’t have justification for not selecting players like Imad Wasim, Shoaib Malik and Sarfaraz Ahmed. Shoaib and Imad performed well in T20 World Cup 2021. Why their performances didn’t come on his laptop? Why they were ignored for T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia? What was their fault? I know Ramiz Bhai was the last authority. The chief selector was bound to communicate with us but in our culture, you communicate with people who always agree with you. You don’t communicate to the people who know how to defend their case.”

“There must be a limit to favouritism. It’s not right to sideline players calling them over-aged. If age is important, then the rule must be the same for everyone. Take the example of Misbah Bhai, who performed for Pakistan. I think the peak of any cricketer starts after the age of 30. There are a lot of other examples too. Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Faf Du Plessis, all are 30+, but they are performing for their teams. In my opinion, age must not be the criteria. If any senior player is worthy for the team, he should be selected regardless of age,”
