Karachi: Career of newly selected fast bowler Usman Khan Shinwari’s seems to be in danger after he was dropped from One-Day International (ODI) squad against Sri Lanka which will starts from January 18.
According to a report, Usman Khan selected over the desire of captain ODI Misbah-ul-Haq after great performance given by the fast bowler in domestic cricket.
Selectors have agreed to induct Usman Khan in Twenty 20 series to observe the capability of the bowler. The selectors asked Mohammad Hafeez, captain T20, to give him complete chance in the shorter format and if would give good performance then he will be selected for the ODI squad.
The selectors asked Hafeez to give first over and the captain agreed with the selectors. But on the ground, Hafeez suddenly change his decision and took the new ball itself.
The report hinted that it was happened because Hafeez was not happy with the development regarding the selection of Usman Khan without his consultion.
“And this is why he give only one over to the fast bowler in the first T20 against Sri Lanka”, the report added.
