Wasim Khan, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), has dismissed reports that skipper Babar Azam is unhappy with the roster for the forthcoming T20 World Cup.

Babar is entirely behind the path of Pakistan cricket, according to a statement released by the PCB.

“It has come to our notice that factually incorrect reports are circulating about the Pakistan national squad environment. The squad for the upcoming international assignments has been announced and our captain Babar Azam is fully behind the direction that is being taken,” said Wasim.

“It is important that collectively we get firmly behind the squad so that they have the stability, backing and focus they need prior to going into the ICC T20 World Cup next month,” he added.

Several local media sources suggested that Babar was dissatisfied with the team chosen for the extravaganza and that he had even called Ramiz Raja to express his displeasure.

Wasim also opened up about the ‘healthy and positive meeting’ between the Pakistan squad and Ramiz Raja, who is likely to be PCB’s next chairman.

“On Tuesday afternoon, some of the players had a healthy and positive meeting with former Pakistan captain and member of the PCB Board of Governors, Ramiz Raja, in which there was a consensus on the brand of cricket that needs to be played in the upcoming series and beyond,” he concluded.
