Pakistan cricketer Riaz terms Sri Lanka tour snub as temporary setback
Islamabad, May 16 (ANI): Snubbed Pakistani cricketer Wahab Riaz has termed his elimination from the squads that are touring Sri Lanka as a temporary setback.
The Express Tribune quoted the fast-bowler as saying that he would regain his place in the team through hard work
Wahab Riaz failed to find a place in any of the three squads, despite selectors opting for separate teams.
The decision on Riaz was based on his last international match against India in the Asia Cup where he was smashed for 50 runs in four overs.
"I am determined to prolong my career, and the snub for a couple of series, cannot break down my determination and resolve. Good days come with the bad, and, that's how the life of a player goes," Riaz said.
"In fact, the snub has given me the motivation to work extra hard, and that's exactly what I'll be doing to regain my place in the national squad," he added.
Wahab also ruled out reports that the snub has forced him to take a back seat from cricket.
"I am playing club matches continuously in Lahore and will also be taking part in the Pakistan Champions League that is to be held in Karachi. I will play domestic cricket and will continue to play wherever I get a chance until I regain the selectors' confidence," he added. (ANI)
