KARACHI: Former Test cricketer Tanveer Ahmed alleged chief selector Mohammad Wasim of forced pull-out of Karachi players from the national squad. 

In a video message shared on his Twitter account, Tanveer called out Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ramiz Raja for not taking notice of Karachi players' ouster from Pakistan team.

"Ramiz Raja Sahab, if you remember, I told you that Karachi players face injustice. See, I wasn't wrong. They are facing it again," said Tanveer while highlighting the ouster of Karachi-hailed Saud Shakeel from the ODI squad against Netherlands. 

Saud scored a fifty in five ODIs he played before taking rest due to nose surgery. He made himself available but remained unpicked for the upcoming tour. 

"Why Saud is facing such a behavior. A lot of dear ones got chances after coming back from injury, then why not Saud?" the cricketer-turned-analyst questioned. 

"Ramiz Raja Sahab, let your 'Yes Man' chief selector Wasim sit with me and I will ask him about this selection. On what basis, he is doing injustice to Karachi players," he bashed. 

The ex-cricketer also tagged Karachi's political leaders and requested them to speak up for Karachi players. 

It must be noted here that cricket experts criticized Pakistan team management for ignoring in-form Shan Masood and Saud in ODI squad for Netherlands tour. 

Pakistan squad for Netherlands ODIs: Babar Azam (captain), Shadab Khan (vice-captain), Abdullah Shafique, Fakhar Zaman, Haris Rauf, Imam-ul-Haq, Khushdil Shah, Mohammad Haris, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Rizwan, Mohammad Wasim Jnr, Naseem Shah, Salman Ali Agha, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Shahnawaz Dahani, and Zahid Mehmood.
