Lahore: The Pakistan Cricket Board has picked a 10-member delegation of former players who will act as goodwill ambassadors in India during the much anticipated bilateral series next month, but questions are being raised about the choices made by the PCB.

The Board’s Executive Coordination Committee has decided to invite the legends to witness the matches between India and Pakistan in December and to help foster better relations between the two countries.

The committee noted that these cricketers have rendered valuable services for Pakistan cricket and are an asset for not only the PCB but for the country as a whole.

“These players will be goodwill ambassadors for Pakistan Cricket and can help in improving the cricketing relations between two countries,” a PCB statement said.

But interestingly some leading names are missing from the list namely former captains Asif Iqbal, Inzamam-ul-Haq, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Rashid Latif, Moin Khan and even Javed Miandad.
