    PCB chief not happy with Junior selectors
    5 January 2000

    Karachi, Jan 4: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) ad hoc committee chairman Lt-Gen Tauqir Zia said on Tuesday he was not
    happy with the junior selection committee that picked the squad for the Youth World Cup starting in Sri Lanka from Jan 12.

    He said he received a number of complaints against the selectors where certain objections were made.

    He said when he investigated, he found out that at least two deserving players were left out.

    "But I didn't interfere because the team had been selected and if I had made changes, it would have left a bad impression. But at least one player who was omitted
    was asked to attend the junior camp," he said.

    Controversy erupted when Ashar Zaidi was named to replace Shoaib Malik. Zaidi was not named in the reserves list. His inclusion meant no place for off-spinner
    Tahir Khan who was not only named in the stand-byes but four out of the five selectors had voted for his selection. But the chairman of selectors Agha Zahid took a
    unilateral decision to include Ashar Zaidi.
