Pakistan’s chief selector and head coach Misbah-ul-Haq criticized fast bowlers Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz for retiring from Test cricket.
Earlier, Amir announced that he was retiring from the red-ball cricket in order to prolong his limited-overs career. Soon after his announcement, Wahab announced that he wanted an indefinite break from the longer version of the cricket game.
The pace duo are missing on the home Test series against Sri Lanka.
While talking to the media, Misbah said that Pakistan Cricket Board will be coming up with a policy regarding the situation soon.
“We are thinking deeply on these lines and we will make a policy on this very soon. Going forward this might become a problem for Pakistan because when you invest so much in the players, on their development, and expect them to give back, they leave the game and it’s not the right way to go about it.”
He said the cricket board’s resources are for the players’ development and a certain policy should be there to ensure players are available for international duties first.
