LAHORE: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chief Executive Wasim Khan has rubbished the reports about Pakistan team circulating in the market that Babar Azam is not happy with the selection of the national squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup which will begin in the UAE and Oman next month.

“It has come to our notice that factually incorrect reports are circulating about the Pakistan national squad environment,” Wasim Khan said in a statement today (Wednesday).

“The squad for the upcoming international assignments has been announced and our captain Babar Azam is fully behind the direction that is being taken. On Tuesday afternoon, some of the players had a healthy and positive meeting with former Pakistan captain and member of the PCB Board of Governors, Ramiz Raja, in which there was a consensus on the brand of cricket that needs to be played in the upcoming series and beyond,” Wasim said.

“It is important that collectively we get firmly behind the squad so that they have the stability, backing and focus they need prior to going into the ICC T20 World Cup next month.”
