Former Pakistan spinner Danish Kaneria has asked why spinners Khasif Bhatti and Nauman Ali, and pace bowlers Tabish Khan and Ehsan Adil have been ignored for the tour of New Zealand.
Nauman is currently the highest wicket-taker in the ongoing Quaid-e-Azam Trophy season with 28 wickets in four matches for Northern at an average of 17.42.
Bhatti, who is playing for Balochistan, has claimed seven wickets in four games at an average of 31.85.
In the four matches he has played for Sindh, Tabish has picked up 10 wickets at an average of 22.20, while Ehsan has snapped up four wickets in two games for Central Punjab.
