Chief selector Mohammad Wasim has rejected claims of a rift with the head coach Misbah-ul-Haq and captain Babar Azam.

Different media
reports suggested that both coach and the captain are unhappy with the team
selection for the upcoming tours of South Africa and Zimbabwe.

Wasim, while talking to Geo News, said that he has heard about the rumours of a rift between the trio but there are no legitimate grounds for these speculations.

“I have been
hearing about the same rumours [of rift] but I don’t believe there is any truth
in this,” he said. “We have a standard procedure which was followed during the
selection of the teams for the South Africa home series and it was similarly
followed this time around as well.

“The selection committee
had three meetings with the captain and the coach whereas there were separate
meetings of the selectors as well. So I don’t really know where are these
rumours coming from.”

The Men in Green
are scheduled to face South Africa in three ODIs and four T20Is after which
they will travel to Zimbabwe.
