Misbah-ul-Haq, Pakistan’s coach, has been much frustrated for not getting Amir and Wahab in the Test squad. 34-year old Wahab Riaz did not specify when he should return to the Test or not. Meanwhile, Misbah is not seeing the retirement of 27-year old Mohammad Amir as easy and simple. He was unhappy that the players who grew up on the board were not dedicated to the team.

“We have to think about these,” Misbah said.

“We are thinking deeply about it. Soon we will create a policy. When you spend a lot of money on improving players, you also expect them to contribute. If they give up the Test format then that is not the right way.”

Misbah added, “Pacers are being made by spending money of the board, but it is a matter of concern if they move away. So we have a policy in place so that the players have the priority to represent Pakistan.”

Shaheen Shah Afridi, Naseem Shah and Mohammad Musa are the youngest players in the team to handle the team’s pace attack in place of the experienced Riaz-Amir.
