The head coach Misbah-ul-Haq vehemently denied discriminating against Sarfaraz Ahmed and Fawad Alam, and defined the bias reported against the two natives of Karachi as “media speculation”.
Misbah is often accused of not choosing a cricket player based in Karachi – an idea cemented by the fact that Sarfaraz was fired for months in Misbah’s term. The mysterious absence of Nature from the Pakistani army is also considered Misbah’s deed – at least in part.
The man himself, however, has rejected accusations he is biased towards couples from the port city or elsewhere.
“There is no beef, there is no fight between me and them. This is just a product of the media and speculation by experts. Both are like my sister. Not that I will be paid for [not] selecting them or running them will be counted in my notes. It’s also not as if some of the other players are my brothers.
“It is a winning team, and when that happens I will get praise like all of us. I am also a human being. I also have to return my life to the Almighty. I can’t even think of discriminating someone intentionally,” Misbah said.
“I always try and be fair with everyone, including these two people. I don’t believe it’s unfair to anyone. I have also seen many ups and downs in my career but have never lost hope.”
Misbah explained the case of the two Karachi players, saying that “Fawad Alam is part of the Pakistani team and he will find his way as soon as the opportunity opens.”
Regarding Sarfaraz, who he had all recently but confirmed for withdrawal ahead of the UK tour, Misbah said: “Sarfaraz Ahmed’s form and fitness are incorrect but he has worked hard for it and will soon return to the team.”
