The Pakistan cricket team is touring England, where three one-day internationals and several T20 internationals will take place between the two countries. After England, the Pakistan cricket team has to play a limited-overs series against the West Indies. Wahab Riaz is not the fastest bowler for both series. Wahab is disappointed with this, but his dream of playing the 2021 T20 World Cup has not yet broken. From October 17, the International Cricket Council (ICC) T20 World Cup will be held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The left-handed pacer has said he does not know what kind of plans Pakistan selectors have for senior players. Wahab said, “Obviously, I am disappointed that after my recent performance I have been dropped for tours of England and the West Indies. The selection criterion is a question for the selection committee, but I think it must be chosen who will do the best. “He may have his reasons but as a senior, I’m disappointed to have lost a spot on the team,” he said.
The 36-year-old bowler has taken 237 wickets in 27 Tests, 91 ODIs and 36 T20 Internationals for Pakistan. “I have not given up hope of playing at the T20 World Cup this year and I think the senior players should be considered for selection as long as they are fit and performing,” he said. Asked about selectors’ policies for senior players, he said, “I don’t know what the problem is with the senior players. Maybe the youngsters listen to what they have, but the seniors always have their say in everything and you have to convince them.
