Former cricketer Tauseef Ahmed said batsman Agha Salman should not be called an off-spinner as he is only a part-time bowler.

He added that Pakistan need to stop this habit of picking bowlers “who can also bowl a bit”.

Salman has represented his country in two Tests, where he has amassed 83 runs, which includes a top score of 62, at an average of 20.75.

He has also played three ODIs and scored 101 runs, which includes a career-best knock of 50 not out, at an average of 101.

“He is not an off-spinner but here we induct players who can also bowl a bit and it needs to be stopped,” Tauseef told Cricket Pakistan.

The 28-year-old was not selected for Pakistan’s seven-match T20 series against England and isn’t part of the T20 World Cup as well.

The men in green are now playing a T20 tri-series against New Zealand and Bangladesh in Christchurch. They started on a high as they cruised to a 21-run win over Bangladesh.

They will them feature in the 2022 T20 World Cup, which will take place in Australia and get underway on October 16.
