Islamabad, July 11 : Former Pakistan captain Javed Miandad has claimed that ''injustice'' has been done to his nephew, as far as cementing a place in the national cricket team was concerned.
"No doubt injustice has been done to some players, including Faisal. But at the same time, as a professional, I believe if he keeps on scoring runs, there is no way he will not be rewarded in time," the Daily Times quoted Miandad, as saying.
Faisal Iqbal, who has been in and out of the national team for the last few years, was recalled to the Test squad for the tour to Sri Lanka last month after nearly two years on the sidelines. Unfortunately, he still didn''t get a chance to play, as the selectors preferred to go with debutant Ayub Dogar.
Miandad pointed out that normally when a senior player is unavailable due to some reason, the next most seasoned player is preferred to replace him.
"But in Sri Lanka this didn''t happen and it was not fair. But I don''t want to create any negativity because I believe a player has his own destiny to fulfill," he said. (ANI)
