Ijaz skeptical about prowess as PCB names U19 team for SL
ISLAMABAD: As the selectors announced the under-19 team for the Sri Lanka tour, coach Ijaz Ahmed was a bit concerned over the strength of the junior team in wake of the domestic competition that was participated mostly by overage players.
“All the overage players who are playing in the domestic under-19 competition are not a part of the national team. We have got with us players genuinely under the age of nineteen. However, in the on-going tournament, the players who have already been declared overage participated and their performance was much better than the players we have got.”
The former Test cricketer said he was carrying along a weak outfit but hopefully with the exposure and competition they would get in Sri Lanka, would help it emerge as a better outfit.
