International teams are only fielding weakly against Pakistan: Integration
The 51-year-old questioned why the ICC was not intervening in the matter.
Pakistan’s legendary former batsman Inzamam-ul-Haq on Wednesday concluded in a YouTube video that the international community is only fielding weaker teams against Pakistan.
The former batsman gave examples of Pakistan’s recent series against South Africa and England, while also discussing New Zealand cricket’s decision to allow the team’s senior players to participate in the Indian Premier League (IPL) instead of touring Pakistan. Was allowed.
Wherever the Pakistan team is going, they are not getting a chance to play against key players. I do not understand When we went to South Africa in April, they sent their players to the IPL. With the upcoming New Zealand series in Pakistan, eight New Zealand players have withdrawn from the tour to play in the IPL. This is amazing to me. Even on a recent tour of England, the entire England team changed because of Covid 19 at the camp, “Inzamam said.
“I feel that the Pakistani team is not practicing properly because it is not playing against key players. We had a chance against West Indies but then we couldn’t play most of the matches due to rain. Do the other sides consider us a B team or don’t want to play against us? What is the ICC doing? Are they sleeping What message are they trying to convey? He added.

The 51-year-old questioned why the International Cricket Council (ICC) was not intervening in the matter and directed the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to lodge a complaint.
Players are focusing on the private league, not international cricket. This is tantamount to degrading international cricket. If you look at the whole sequence, it is only against Pakistan. Are they trying to discredit Pakistan? I don’t understand that at all. Our entire preparation depends on the matches against Zimbabwe, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Looks like we didn’t play proper cricket last year. It is worth considering. Why Pakistan is not complaining to ICC? I think action should be taken in this regard. Players should not be allowed to play in private leagues when they have international commitments.
