    ISLAMABAD - Kamran Akmal has once again blasted Pakistan Cricket team selection criteria.

    Kamran Akmal has once again criticized the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and its selection committee.

    Apart from ICC Champions Trophy, what has Pakistan won? Their poor selection reflects in the results.

    It not only about the World Cup squad but the teams that have been selected in the last 5-6 years. Majority of them have been selected on basis of personal liking.

    Despite scoring heavily in Pakistan’s domestic circuit, Kamran Akmal has failed to impress the selection committee for the upcoming World Cup. He has also been one of the consistent batsman throughout the Pakistan Super League (PSL) history.

    He is not wrong. Look at the ODI record of Pakistan since the last WC.

    I know results are really, really bad, however, I can also read between the lines. You draft him (or U.Akmal) in WC squad and all of sudden this will be best available pool of players - mark my words

    Sounds more like a wishful thinking bro.

    For that to happen, we need adept bowling attack, which will take wickets. Thats not happening atm.

    Amir ajata hai Shadab wapis ajata hai Imad Wasim already hai and they keep experienced Hassan and Junaid in the playing 11 and keep Shaheen in the reserves this will become a good bowling attack all of the sudden. All of Amir, Junaid, Hassan, Shadab and Imad are very experienced and they can be supported by Hafeez and Shoaib Malik and Harris Sohail and Fakhar Zaman. Atleast couple of them will be in playing 11. Harris Sohail agar nahi hota hai to Hafeez hoga. Asif Ali ki jaga ho sakta hai Shoaib Malik ajaye. Fakhar Zaman is already a part of the playing 11!!

    Amir agar available nahi hota hai to then we will need to sort this bowling attack and in my opinion then our bowling attack will be Junaid, Hasnain/ Shaheen, Hassan, Shadab and Imad plus Hafeez, Shoaib Malik and Fakhar Zaman.

    Boy. After dropping match(es) single-handedly this fat man has the nerve to ask for his selection in the team.

    Icing on the cake, his chota bhai was given full series against AUS in UAE, where he flunked again and this besharam is still talking.

    I think Imad made some brutal comments about U.Akmal indirectly during last series.

    As much as I feel that Ukmal should have been selected ahead of Malik/Hafeez, i don't believe Kamran Akmal should be the one complaining about anything. Kamran had his chances and the ability to make an impact especially with the bat but failed. I remember when due to his poor keeping, he was even offered to play as a batsman but refused, hoping to continue his hold on the keeping position.

    Point however you yourself participated in multiple tournaments yet failed to win trophy. Were those selections also rubbish. Wouldn't going by that theory only the selections of 1992 world cup, 2017CT and 2009T20 were worthy to be called adequate selections as rest were failure since they won nothing.. Going by that theory even the elections of 2007 world cup and 2011 world cup were failure where you yourself were selected.

    He is just frustrated.

    He had two value points to make selection. Opener and wicketkeeper.

    Wicketkeeper is now our captain so that's not happening and opener we have fakhar who scored century, imam who has scored multiple centuries and in the back drop others who are way ahead in line thus he is now sitting on TV relieving his frustration as he screams how horrific the selection is, how corrupt the PCB is and how nepotism is ruling the board.

    Its just amazing that the flaws are highlighted only when players find themselves either out of the team or management.
