Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board Ejaz Butt has assured Saturday that captain Pakistan cricket team Shoaib Malik would be consulted for selection of the national cricket team.

He said this during a meeting with Shoaib Malik and the selection committee at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.

Shoaib Malik said after the meeting that the selection for the national team, for next tour, would be made on mutual consultation of the captain and the selection committee.

He quoted PCB chairman as saying that no in-disciplinary act would be allowed and only the in-form players would become part of the team.

Malik said neither does exist any conflict nor there is any grouping in the team and ruled out news regarding PCB former chairman Dr. Naseem Ashraf’s joining cricket team in dressing room during a T20 match in Toronto.

Meanwhile, the chairman selection committee said that team selection, for series in Abu Dhabi against the West Indies, would be evaluated on the performance of players in the first two matches of the Toronto T20 tournament.
