Inzamam picks banned Sharjeel Khan in all-time Pakistan World Cup squad
Pakistan Chief Selector and former skipper Inzamam-ul-Haq has selected banned opener Sharjeel Khan and wicket-keeper-batsman Kamran Akmal in his 13-member all-time Pakistan World Cup squad.
“I would pick Sharjeel along with openers Saeed Anwar and Majid Khan. Sharjeel is an outstanding talents,” said Inzamam.
Inzamam termed selecting an all-time Pakistan World Cup XI a difficult task. “I would select Zaheer Abbas, Javed Miandad and Mohammad Yousuf as my middle-order batsmen.”
Inzamam picked the former captain Imran Khan to lead the side and partner pacers Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis and Shoaib Akhtar in the bowling attack.
Inzamam preferred Shahid Afridi and Saqlain Mushtaq ahead of former great Abdul Qadir.
“Although Pakistan have had some great wicketkeepers in the past but if you look at wicketkeepers in the modern era, Kamran Akmal would be the perfect choice,” he said.
