Junaid Khan denies ‘rumours’ of switching to England cricket team


KARACHI: Left-arm pacer Junaid Khan on Wednesday expressed disappointment over ‘rumours’ about him considering options regarding switching to England cricket team after being repeatedly kept out of the national side by Pakistan Cricket Board.

Junaid Khan admitted that he was immensely disappointed for not being selected for the upcoming England tour.

He, however, expressed discomfort over the news being associated with him that he is considering to move to England and play for them. “There is no truth in any such claim,” he asserted.

The left-arm pacer said his in-laws are mostly living in England and since he was not selected for the national Test Squad so he was considering options to play county cricket there.

Junaid Khan said, “Lancashire was interested to sign him again but he didn’t sign the contract because he was confident that his name will be include in the Test squad touring England.”

“I don’t know what else I will have to do to make a comeback in the national side, as I have already performed well in the PSL and Pakistan A team,” he maintained.

Chief Selector Inzamam-ul-Haq had said that “Junaid Khan was not in full rhythm”.

Replying to this, Junaid said he was fully fit and focused during the boot camp at PMA Kakul, “where else do I prove my fitness and rhythm”.
