Pakistan left-arm seamer Wahab Riaz said he doesn’t know why so many youngsters are being called up to the national team.

Lately, Pakistan have given chances to many youngsters who don’t have a lot of domestic experience.

Providing his insight into the matter, Wahab said it could be that they are more obedient in comparison to senior players.

“Not sure what the issue is with [the] inclusion of youngsters – it could be that they are more obedient whilst the seniors need more convincing about anything but at the end of the day, all players need to follow the team plan,” he was quoted as saying by PakPassion.

Wahab recently captained the Peshawar Zalmi in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) and finished as the second-highest wicket-taker with 18 wickets in 12 games at an average of 23.44 and an economy rate of 8.97.

Despite his strong performances in the PSL, Wahab was not picked for the tours of England and the West Indies.

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.
