Veteran Pakistan pace bowler Wahab Riaz said he is disappointed that his performances are being ignored by the national selectors.

This comes after he was overlooked for the tours of England and the West Indies despite doing very well in the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

Wahab finished as the second-highest wicket-taker in the tournament as he took 18 wickets in 12 games for the Peshawar Zalmi at an average of 23.44 and an economy rate of 8.97.

The 36-year-old, who captained the Zalmi, said he believes that players should be picked in the Pakistan team if they perform well at the domestic level.

“In my view, anyone who performs well should be selected. Obviously only they can comment on this but as a player I am disappointed,” he was quoted as saying by PakPassion.

Pakistan will play three ODIs and three T20 Internationals against England. The ODI series will begin on July 8 and conclude on July 13, while the T20 series will be held from July 16 to 20.

The tour of the West Indies will consist of five T20 Internationals and two Tests, with the T20 series getting underway on July 27 and ending on August 3.

As for the Test series, it will start on August 12 and conclude on August 24.
