Pakistan left-arm seamer Wahab Riaz has admitted that he was “disappointed and hurt” to be left out of the World Cup squad.
Despite being gutted that he won’t represent Pakistan at the World Cup, Wahab will be “looking forward” and aiming to get back into the national team through his performances on the domestic circuit.
The 33-year-old starred in the Pakistan Super League (PSL), where he was the third-highest wicket-taker with 17 wickets in 13 games for the Peshawar Zalmi at an average of 19.88.
“Obviously I was disappointed and hurt over not getting picked for the World Cup, but these things happen [and] you never know what happens next. So, one should always be looking forward,” Wahab was quoted as saying by the Business Recorder.
Pakistan will begin their World Cup campaign against the West Indies in Nottingham on May 31.
