    Aamir Sohail

    Changes likely in Australia bound squad;

    Sohail in line for recall

    KARACHI: Changes are likely to be made to the 14-member Pakistan
    squad announced for the triangular one-day series in Australia, with
    the appointment of Lt General Tauqeer Zia as the new Chairman of
    the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Ad hoc Committee.

    'The News' has learnt that the new cricket chief will be visiting the
    Gaddafi Stadium today and will formally take charge of the
    Chairman's office. And it is likely he will decide to make few changes
    to the already announced team after consultations with senior
    players, officials and the present national selection committee.

    The selection committee headed by Salahuddin Ahmed last week
    announced the 14-member squad after consultations with captain
    Wasim Akram and the team did not include Aamer Sohail, Muhammad
    Akram, Waqar Younis or Rashid Latif, despite their recent consistent
    performances at the domestic level and seniority.

    Akram and Waqar in fact went to Australia with the team for the
    Test series and performed well there despite limited chances to play.
    Waqar Younis and Aamer Sohail in fact would be trying to meet the
    new Chairman today at the Gaddafi Stadium, where incidentally the
    Pakistan team conditioning camp also starts the same day.

    Sources say chances of Sohail going to Australia after all are very
    strong, since the new Chairman is said to believe injustice has been
    done with the left-handed opener and former Pakistan captain.

    Lt General Tauqeer Zia on Tuesday called former Test player and a
    member of the Ad hoc Committee of Dr Zafar Altaf, Colonel Naushad
    Ali for a meeting in Rawalpindi. It is not known what was discussed
    but indications are that Naushad has given a detailed briefing to the
    General about the current state of affairs and also on the Pakistan
    You can't fix stupid. So might as well troll them!

    Aamir should have been there for the test matches. It is too late for him now. he will disrupt the dressing room harmony.


      Mr Extreme,

      Don't you think he would have disrupted the dressing room harmony anyway - as he is unwanted. I certainly would not have him in the team - he maybe a good player BUT his attitude stinks.


        well Aamir does have an attitude problem but hopefully he must have had learned enough since he had been sitting outside. He should have been picked up for australian series. I am not saying that things would have been much different for sure but he is an experienced player and would have made some difference.
        I agree that picking him now for the one-day series would be a mistake. Too short a time to adjust.


          I didn't check the time on the last post but... hasn't a final official report already been released? Stating Sohail was only called to camp and will not be going to Aus now.

          I think if one of the top-order batsman perform poorly down under, Sohail will almost definitely be recalled for the upcoming home series against Sri Lanka.


            awwwww, CM ... how come you don't post interesting insights like that regarding the Indian team players.

            I know quite a bit about PK team, so personally, I'm much more interested in hearing about the 2nd best team in the sub-continent. Infact, it should be easier for you too.
