Former Pakistan all-rounder Yasir Arafat has said that the national selectors keep praising veteran pace bowler Tabish Khan, but continue to ignore him.
Yasir is the latest player to call for Tabish to be selected as he has enjoyed an incredibly successful domestic career thus far.
The 35-year-old has taken 584 wickets in 133 first-class matches at an average of 24.11, but has never played for Pakistan.
In the ongoing Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, Tabish has claimed 19 wickets in six matches for Sindh, which includes their current match against Central Punjab, at an average of 28.84.
Selectors Ka Kehana ha tabish Ma dam Bhee ha Aur Khaam Bhee, performance Bhee lakin tabish Ma Woh Baat Nahee ha 🤣🤣

Taking to Twitter, Arafat said the selectors are saying Tabish has everything, including performance, but it is still not enough.
It remains to be seen what happens with Tabish, but the pressure is mounting on the national selectors to get him in the Pakistan team.
