Karachi, Feb.16 (ANI): Former Pakistan skipper Aamer Sohail has expressed his disappointment over Kamran Akmal’s exclusion from next month’s World Twenty20 in India, saying that he deserved to be selected in the national squad on the back of strong performances in the domestic circuits.
The 49-year-old insisted that if tainted fast bowler Mohammad Amir could be included in the team, then Akmal should also be given a chance despite having doubts about his commitment, PakPassion.net reported.
Lashing out at Pakistan selectors, Sohail said that they were contributing towards the downfall and the destruction of the country’s cricket.
The former opener also expressed his views on the lack of specialist spinners in the Pakistan squad for the T20 pinnacle event.
He admitted that the absence of specialists would inevitably put more pressure on skipper Shahid Afridi.
The World T20 is slated to be held between March 8 to April 13, with Pakistan playing their opening match against India on March 19. (ANI)
