Pakistan’s wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran Akmal, in a Tweet on Friday, stated that he was heartbroken and hurt after his recent snub from the series against Bangladesh despite his prolific domestic form. The head coach-cum-chief selector Misbahul Haq announced the squad, that will take part in the upcoming series against Bangladesh, during a press conference at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on Thursday.

Akmal claimed that he had worked very hard in domestic cricket and would continue to do so.

The wicketkeeper-batsman, while responding to other Tweets, stated that the heroes of a country are not supposed to be disrespected in this way.

“Hero aise zaleel nahi hotey (Heroes should not be disrespected in this way). I won’t give up. I just fail to understand the criteria [for selecting players],” he tweeted.
