Lahore, July 1(ANI): The Pakistan Senate Standing Committee on Sports has summoned the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) officials and selectors over the 'injustice in selection' of the Test squad currently touring England.

Pakistan's 17-man Test squad, announced during the Asia Cup in Sri Lanka last month, has come under severe criticism from former and current players.

It is also controversial, as some members of the selection committee claimed that they were not consulted.

The Senate committee's Chairman Abdul Ghaffar Qureshi said that the PCB needed to explain itself.

"We have come to know that there are injustices in the team selection and to probe that we have summoned officials and selectors in a meeting in Islamabad on July 9," The Daily Times quoted Qureshi, as saying.

Former Pakistan captain Younus Khan was not included despite his indefinite ban, imposed by the PCB in March over disciplinary problems, being overturned last month.

Pakistan has back-to-back series against Australia and England in England.

The tour includes two Twenty20 games and two Tests against Australia and four Tests, five ODIs and two Twenty20 games against England. (ANI)
