KARACHI: Fast bowler Junaid Khan on Monday protested over his exclusion from the World Cup squad with a picture showing his mouth covered with black tape.
“I don’t want to say anything. Truth is bitter,” captioned the player his picture, hours after the announcement of Mohammad Amir’s inclusion in the World Cup squad by the chief selector Inzimamul Haq, replacing Khan.

Inzimam has said, “Junaid and Faheem are dropped but that doesn’t mean they are not good. But we think players like Amir and Wahab are more suitable for these conditions, which is why we have preferred them.”
Besides Khan, batsman Abid Ali and all-rounder Faheem Ashraf were also left out of the final squad.
In the recent ODI series with England, whitewashed by 4-0, Khan only managed to get only two wickets.
