    Iqbal Qasim "Younus couldn't be sent for the test series, because he was in the Sea"

    The fallout from the hammering that the Pakistan cricket team suffered in Australia continued with former chief selector Iqbal Qasim rebuking reports that Younus Khan was ready and available to join the test series in Australia and was ignored by the selection committee.

    Skipper Mohammad Yousuf and the team management in Australia had specifically asked for Younus Khan to join up with the struggling test squad and media reports during the tour of Australia had claimed that Younus was available for selection for the test series, but the selectors had turned down the request of Mohammad Yousuf and the team management. However former Chief Selector Iqbal Qasim denied those reports saying that the selectors did their best to contact Younus Khan, but without success.

    "After the Dubai debacle and during the test series in Australia we tried to contact Younus, but he was not reachable, we couldn't trace his whereabouts. As far as we (the selectors) were aware, Younus was sitting somewhere in the sea. We had no idea whereabouts in the sea he was and we had no idea where he had gone" stated Qasim.

    Qasim who tendered his resignation from the role of Chief Selector prior to the end of the tour of Australia added "The team management and captain in Australia asked for Younus Khan, but Younus Khan was not there, we couldn't reach him".

    Qasim continued "Eventually when we located Younus we asked him to come and play some domestic cricket so we could judge him. Then he played some games for Habib Bank and we sent him for the one day squad".

    Qasim's comments are in stark contrast to the comments from skipper Mohammad Yousuf who hinted that the selction committee had directly ignored his appeals to send Younus Khan to Australia for the test series. In addition, Qasim's comments highlight the fact that Younus Khan had no real intentions of joining the struggling Pakistani team and playing in the test series in Australia.

    These quotes are from an interview I did with Iqbal Qasim a couple of days ago.

    The full interview will be available later in the week/weekend.

    So in summary, Qasim is saying that Younus Khan was AWOL.

    My guess is that Younus had no intentions of joining his team mates in Australia for the test series.

    According to Qasim, the selection committee didnt intentionally ignore the request of Yousuf to send Younus.

    Well he's not right about the fact that the selectors ignored his request. According to Qasim they tried to locate Younus but he was nowhere to be seen.

    When you say Yousuf is dead right, I guess Cover Drive that you mean he is right about Younus not fancying playing in the test series in Australia.

    I think there was a report or comment by someone (maybe a source) that YK is not available as he is traveling or something like that and cannot be contacted. It was posted in a thread here.

    My guess is that Younus had no intentions of joining his team mates in Australia for the test series.
    Very possible and same goes for anyone who makes themselves available when they feel like the time is right for them for a PR statement

    LONDON - Pakistan cricket captain Younus Khan, who opted out of the New Zealand series citing need for rest, has announced his availability for the forthcoming Australia tour.


    Khan told media persons during a press conference here that he has already informed the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) about his decision.

    Khan, however, declined to comment on queries whether he would return to the team as captain, saying: ” It would be decided in due course of time.”

    PCB chairman Ijaz Butt, who was also present at the press conference, said the media would soon be informed about Khan’s status in the team, The Dawn reports.

    He was in the sea?!

    As far as my understanding of the situation goes Iqbal Qasim and the rest of the selection comittee never intended to send Younus with the team to New Zealand or Australia.

    Then Pakistan got hammered in the first test against Australia and YK was needed all of a sudden. Instead of sending him straight to Aus as the situation demanded the great Mr Qasim and his think tank decided it would be wise to let a proven test player averaging in the 50's prove himself in PAKISTANI domestic cricket?

    Saj somewhere between dubai debacle and aus series there was the series in NZ during which YK was launching test series in ENG with butt sahab so its a total lie that during that time they could not get hold of him.

    What nonsense!!

    YK had a press conference and announced his availability to go to australia for the tests. Did he do that press conference in the middle of the sea?

    Iqbal Qasim is lying.

    I don't know how credible Iqbal Qasim is...nothing on you Saj but it the flip flop he does in interview....In one of the interviews he gave to you he said that Abdul Razzaq was not selected becasue of the injury (I don;t recall which series. It was before the NZ and Aus tour)). However, Abdul Razzaq himself came on the media and said that he was dropped and did not have any injury.

    This just puts doubt in credibility of Iqbal Qasim.

    Even if he is sitting in the sea, he has a right to go anywhere, because they guy took time off from cricket and want to relax due to his stressful events in his cricketing carrier.

    People here have no problem if one player has taken time off from test cricket for last 4 years to play mama papa 20/20 league to make money and if somebody took one series off due to personal reasons, people are saying that he is chickened out.

    One of my good friend who knows one of the chief selector ( I am not going to name it), asked about the selection process in Pakistan cricket team, chief selector said that PCB chief usually give the name of the players and his job is just to announce the name of the players in press conference.

    No they don't really. YK makes a statement as players like to. Selectors try to contact him and he is not available. Well whoes responsiblity is it? A celebrity/hero to be availabe or a selector trying to find out if he is serious and wants to play. He should not be announcing his availabilty in media (well he can as it is Pakistan) but he has to talk to selectors too before squad is announced

    Hahaha. How stupid do you have to be to lie when there are verifiable news reports contradicting your version of the story?

    Here are the facts: After Melbourne, Yousuf asked the selectors and the board to send Younis. This was a week before the infamous Sydney test was to begin. The selectors decided to not send him because "It is not like the team is losing just because he isn't there" and "And who will he replace there? Various batsmen have scored some runs here so it might be unfair to drop them." [The reference to batsmen scoring runs was Misbah making a 60 odd in the first innings and Faisal a 40 in the second].

    They told him to play domestic cricket because "The Pentangular is happening and that would be a good way for him to play and get some practice". All these quotes are available from this Osman Samiuddin report (http://www.cricinfo.com/ausvpak09/co...y/441808.html).

    So to recap: Yousuf asks for a player, and the selectors refuse. Now, there is no problem with selectors refusing to send a player per se. But there ARE problems with:

    1. Waffling. Go back and read the coverage from that time, and you'll see that they keep pushing the date back on when they're making a decision. They arrange for meetings, reschedule meetings, don't make decisions during those meetings, schedule another meeting, and by that time, it's too late. If you think I'm exaggerating, this is EXACTLY the course of events during late December/early January.

    2. Lying. Iqbal Qasim and the selectors chose not to send Younis. Like I said, they're within their rights to do that; they're the selectors after all, not Yousuf. But please don't insult everyone's intelligence with this nonsense about being at sea and not being available.

    Also, Younis was playing domestic cricket BEFORE the test series began. Yes, he played terribly, but that's not the point here. The point is, he was in Pakistan, playing cricket in the premier domestic tournament, and the idea that the selectors couldn't find him is utter hogwash.

    First test in Melbourne: Dec 26-30 (http://www.cricinfo.com/ausvpak09/en...ch/406199.html)
    QEA trophy final (in which YK played): Dec 21-23 (http://www.cricinfo.com/pakdomestic-...ch/427920.html)

    Iqbal Qasim is a liar. A very stupid liar.

He probably expected YK to contact the people incharge - the selectors unless you want Ijazz Butt to select the squad, The selectors knew that YK was not avialable when the NZ-Aus tour started and later they tried to contact YK but he was not reachable. After Aus squad was selected it didn't matter as time had passed

So in Iqbal Qasim tryna say that Younus turned his mobile of, telephone of, locked his doors, didnt get in touch with any of his agents, friends , family, didnt play in the QEA and he went fissing some where in the Indian Ocean. hats of to your Mr Qasim good thing you resigned

    I don't take sides because I like someone or not. I am hearing two sides and I take them as news. But player should be in touch with PCB not a press conference to announce his availibilty or what his mood is now. Responsibilty is on both sides. One says we tried to track down and it seems the other side was not reachable when squad was announced. It doesn't matter what happend after first or second test. What happend when squad was announced?

    12th Man Iqbal Qasim claims after dubai debacle and aus series they couldn't get hold of YK.But we all saw YK with Ijaz butt launching ENG series here in UK that was during first test in NZ and then YK played QA trophy final on the eve of aus series. Now I assume being being chief selector Iqbal Qasim was there doing his job. So how can he say during that time they didn't know his whereabouts.

    Well Sami was included in the side AFTER the squad was selected, sent, and even played one test match. Same time when MoYo wanted Younis to be in the side.

    Both Sami and Younis played the QEA trophy final but Sami made it to Sydney and YK couldn't?!? Please tell me if you see any consistency here.

    All three are liars;

    Yousuf: he thought he will handle australia with out yonus on his own and will become a national hero so he took a long pause to send SOS to the blindfolds.

    Younus: Was smiling from every where hoping yousuf will directly beg in front of him for survival.

    Iqbal qasim: Last part of his statement shows that he was watching younus gaining some form playing domestic cricket.

    One thing was a bowler was injured plus they gave up on the 4th seamer I guess.

    Good points but bunch of things were said here about squad changes too.

    But it was pretty silly as the 4th bowler was not selected right. They even sent Misbah somewhere in NZ-Aus tour. YK should have been sent but that is another thing. The thread is about initial squad selection and YK was not reachable. The whole PCB - from chairman, selectors, management and players have a problem and that is how they are

    12th man, this thread is also about Iqbal Qasim denying the claim which Yousuf made about Younis Khan's inclusion. Every one knows that Yousuf specifically asked for YK for the 2nd and 3rd tests in Aus. Younis at that time was not in the sea but was on National TV playing QEA finals, how come this fool can say that they were unable to contact him after Yousuf's demands.

    I just fail to see was the thought process that made the selectors drop Younis for Tests and play him in the ODIs. One word incompetence comes to mind.

    I just wish YK had as much support from his players as he does here. Media is wrong (masala news), PCB is wrong (corrupt organization) Selectors are wrong (liars) all this coming from the people who are too far away from reality. Guess who is right? The captain who jumped the ship in the drowning moment. The fact is the whole setup is in disarray from top to bottom

    YK I quit
    Moyo lousy captain but won't quit
    Afridi win at any cost cheating inclusive
    Kamran I am above everyone, I must play
    Omar novice but you don't play my brother I will pretend being hurt
    Malik creating problems for all of the above

    Six players nothing but trouble for pakistan. I will get rid of all of them if we have to add more go ahead and bring the A team in. A good example for all the upcoming cricketers. You play for Pakistan.

    captain should not have the power to ask players unless someone is injured and replacement is not available in squad.
    It was huge mistake of PCB to allow misbah and sami first place.
    Captain can fight for players at the squad selection but not after that...

    MoYo has gone buzzerk. He should be glad that YK didn't come and Khurram played. He did much better than YK would have done. YK needs to go for fishing contest only.

    MoYo's decisions turn the second test away and led to this down fall.

    Saj,
    I have lost trust with Qasim when he lied about Abdul Razzaq was dropped from Dubai series and he claimed he was injured and later we found that he was not injured.

    Here Qasim is still playing with us on the issue of YK. I agree YK may not be found initially but if you remember YK was found when the first test finished. There was ample time to send him for 2nd test but they decided he needs match practice. I do agree that he did but do not blame that he was not found because when the news came he could not be found suddenly he was found attending the coaching course organized by PCB within a couple of days. It seems he is lying again.

    Here are the facts: After Melbourne, Yousuf asked the selectors and the board to send Younis. This was a week before the infamous Sydney test was to begin. The selectors decided to not send him because "It is not like the team is losing just because he isn't there" and "And who will he replace there? Various batsmen have scored some runs here so it might be unfair to drop them." [The reference to batsmen scoring runs was Misbah making a 60 odd in the first innings and Faisal a 40 in the second].

    They told him to play domestic cricket because "The Pentangular is happening and that would be a good way for him to play and get some practice". All these quotes are available from this Osman Samiuddin report (http://www.cricinfo.com/ausvpak09/co...y/441808.html).

    So to recap: Yousuf asks for a player, and the selectors refuse. Now, there is no problem with selectors refusing to send a player per se. But there ARE problems with:

    1. Waffling. Go back and read the coverage from that time, and you'll see that they keep pushing the date back on when they're making a decision. They arrange for meetings, reschedule meetings, don't make decisions during those meetings, schedule another meeting, and by that time, it's too late. If you think I'm exaggerating, this is EXACTLY the course of events during late December/early January.

    2. Lying. Iqbal Qasim and the selectors chose not to send Younis. Like I said, they're within their rights to do that; they're the selectors after all, not Yousuf. But please don't insult everyone's intelligence with this nonsense about being at sea and not being available.
    Nice, very nice.

    Methinks Iqbal Qasim should go throw himself somewhere in the sea. Who knows, he might just find Younis there? Or not.

    Interesting that it was these same people in management claiming that Younis was out fishing, whereas he was found in a managment course. Will they ever get their stories straight.

    Perhaps they are hoping that most fans have short memories and are as fickle as most of the employees on the board??

    Load of BS, these guys can lie with a straight face as if everyone else is as moronic as them, they made clear that they wanted him to play in domestic and he played in domestic. Yousef was unhappy enough hearing about this absurdity that he openely mocked it saying that YK had a 50 avg in tests and had been playing for ten years. He also remarked, will they come tomorrow and check my form if I am not playing well?

    That QAE final ended before the second test started. YK played in the same QAE final (somewhere in the sea for these morons) that Sami played in before coming to AUS. How hard was it for these idiots to get hold of YK? They said he needed to play domestic to get in form and ofcourse YK played domestic as they wanted. The next Pentagular match which YK played was at the time of the 3rd test

    These guys had egos, were clueless and making idiotic statements day in day out, and had no resolve or intent to send YK to Australia as their many statements at the time showed. Sadly now they are trying to whitewash their own stupidity.

    These guys are a complete load of BS and full of it.

    That is beside the point now, in ODI, even an out of form YK showed he can stay at the wicket better than jokers like Kamran Akmal, Faisal Iqbal, etc.

    Aamir pakistan selectors don't get paid is the argument used but people forget these ppl end up making more then good salary. Its like mido being on 52k a year at west ham. Now that's unbelievable isn't it. But every appearance adds 5k every goal he scores is worth 20k.

    My impression was that they do get paid. Regardless, if is a volunteer job....should even be easier to quit seeing as you have no input. You could say you are doing it to help Pak cricket but if your the rubber stamp guy, your not really helping anyone....so where is the incentive to do it?

    Point is, he was enjoying some sort of benefit or there was no point staying on.

    why did they make him play domestic cricket to 'judge' him if it didn't even matter how he performed.

    the guy couldnt make more than 7 runs in all of the test innings in the domestic matches so who is the genious who 'judged him' based on this to merit him selection in the ODI's?



    WHAT A JOKE!


    if you are not attacking you are defending. And if you are defending you are losing.

    I hope Iqbal Qasim doesn't encounter the same issues this time around.
