Karachi: Newly-appointed Pakistan chief selector, Inzamam-ul-Haq, has asserted that the standard of pitches used in the domestic tournaments needs to be enhanced in order to bring
improvement in the country’s overall cricket.
Inzamam, who represented Pakistan in 120 Tests and 398 ODIs, observed that poor quality of pitches would have a counterproductive effect on players as well as domestic cricket structure.
Taking a departure from usual approach wherein prolific scorers in domestic circuits get top priority in the national team, the former Test captain stated that his selection committee’s approach would be to pick players capable of playing match-winning role, the Dawn reported.
Probable players for the upcoming tour of England will be announced after the conclusion of the ongoing Pakistan Cup, a domestic one-day cricket tournament.
Pakistan are scheduled to play four Tests, five ODIs and one-off T20 against England from July to September. (ANI)
