PCB still silent on Ahmed Shehzad’s controversy  

Pakistan’s talented top-order batsman, Ahmed Shehzad, who has been axed from the 16-member squad for the upcoming tour of Zimbabwe, has claimed that he does not know the reasons that why he is being treated badly despite his brilliant recent recitals.

He says that he will seek the clarification report from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) regarding his controversy but the board is silent on the issue.      

The PCB also did not consider him in the list of central contract players and did not clear him the reasons that on what basis he has not been issued a contract.

It was also claimed by that the player was warned personally by the PCB chairman Ijaz Butt, but the player has not improved.

 While talking to media, the 19-year-old, Shahzad said, “I don’t know the reason behind my ouster despite having scored runs recently. It really hurts when at once everything is taken from you.”

The Lahore-born batsman, Shahzad has scored two electrifying centuries on the recent tour of New Zealand and has been a regular member in the ICC World Cup 2011, where he also gave his terrific performance.

Recently, a report claimed that the former bowling coach, Waqar Younis and Pakistan’s team manager, Intikhab Alam had complained to the PCB that Shehzad has been engaged to create conspiracies in the team during recent West Indies tour.

A report also claimed that the Shehzad has been creating misunderstandings between coach Waqar and ex-skipper Shahid Afridi.

The Men in Green’s former captain, Shahid Afridi was sacked from captaincy after the tour to West Indies. However, the aggressive Afridi announced his retirement from international cricket later.

Shehzad has rejected all the scandals and says that he was not liable for the clash between Afridi and Waqar.         

“I was not responsible for this dispute between the captain and coach in the West Indies. Yes, Afridi is like a mentor to me and I have learnt a lot from him and he has guided me a lot,” claimed Shahzad.

Earlier the player also claimed that he wanted explanation by the PCB regarding his issue but PCB is still silent on Shahzad’s concerns.   

“The reports about my lack of discipline are not true. I will seek a clarification from the PCB officials soon and get my name cleared,” he added.
