Former Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Rashid Latif believes that the national team are in desperate need of quality leg-spinners.
Latif pointed out that with the exception of Yasir Shah and Shadab Khan, there aren’t many other players on the domestic circuit that have shown a lot of promise.
However, the 50-year-old added that for the few that do have a lot of talent, they are not being picked in the Pakistan team “due to internal politics”.
“We bring back those players who are performing well at [the] domestic level and I hope by doing well this season, they will win places in the national team,” Latif told The Nation. “Zahid is a leg-spinner from Dadu while Shahzaib is another leg-spinner with 100 plus wickets. They were not getting chances due to internal politics.”
