    "We felt that as he is a fast-bowler we need to give Junaid some time to recover": Inzamam-ul-Haq

    Inzamam-ul-Haq in a video message:

    “The selected team is a unanimous choice of the selection panel, including Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed and Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur. While selecting the squad, we have tried to maintain consistency, taking into consideration player performances in white-ball cricket as well as looking ahead to the upcoming ODI challenges, including the World Cup,” chairman of Pakistan’s cricket selectors Inzamam-ul-Haq said.

    "Junaid Khan had some good performances in the Asia Cup but unfortunately during the series against New Zealand he got a very serious toe injury"

    "Even the doctor's report indicated that his injury was serious"

    "After that he worked on his fitness and also played in the National T20 Cup but we the selectors felt that as he is a fast-bowler we need to give him some time to recover"

    "So Junaid Khan will get time now [to recover]"

    "He is a good bowler and is part of the pool of our bowlers that we have, and we will consider him when he is fit"

    "Mohammad Amir put in some excellent performances [in the 2 Tests]"

    "We had rested Mohammad Amir, or however you want to put it, but the fact is that he hasnt had time to rest or make himself fit but he got that time and then against South Africa he performed well so on that basis we have included him in the ODI squad"

    "About Hussain Talat, it is the opinion of the Captain and Coach that he is a very talented player and his attitude to the game is also very good"

    "His performance in T20 is also good and as we have seen that we need a person at the 5-6 batting position who is a good batsman and he can also give us an edge in fast-bowling"

    "We are also looking at Faheem Ashraf as a bowling all-rounder but Hussain Talat's quality is that he is a batting all-rounder"

    "Hopefully Hussain Talat will debut in ODIs and we have high hopes that he will perform well"

    "Mohammad Abbas, as we all know, is an excellent bowler"

    "It is the wish of the selection committee that Mohammad Abbas be part of the ODI team"

    "Especially with our target as the 2019 World Cup (in England) where the ball swings a lot, to have a bowler like Abbas will give us an advantage with the new ball"

    "But Mohammad Abbas had a shoulder injury during the NZ series so we don't want too much pressure on him as he has didnt play the 1st Test but played 2nd Test and will God Willing play the 3rd Test also"

    "So we don't want to put pressure of ODIs and Tests on him and after this tour we have quite a few matches before the World Cup so 5 against Australia and 5 against England, so we will definitely try him out"

    "When you have a bowler of this type in the ODI squad, it increases the strength of the side"

    "We have taken a report from doctors in South Africa to know that the team is fit; Same way, in the academy we get the full report from the doctors about the players fitness and any injuries as well"

    "There is no doubt that this was a tough tour and everyone knows that South Africa is always a difficult place to tour as wickets are totally different"

    "Whilst our team did not perform that well, I have a belief that this team can give a much better performance and God Willing they will do it"

    "The South Africans utilized the conditions really well but our captain and coach have a belief that they will change things for the better and you will see that in the upcoming Test and ODIs are performances will be better"

    "Look, I have been part of an international side like this one and such times do come where the team faces difficulties in a 4-6 month period"

    "Things start to go against our team but I would like to say is that we should support our team"

    "We should back our players because the same team will change things like the teams of the past where we have made comebacks from tough times, so even this team will do that"

    "All those who are criticising [this team], and I am not saying they are doing something wrong as a lot of what they say is correct and we are working on those issues"
