MQM MPA demands quota for Sindh cricketers in national team
KARACHI: The Sindh Assembly demanded a separate quota for Sindh players in the Pakistan cricket team.
According to details, MQM member Sindh Assembly Mohammad Hussain moved a resolution in the house on Tuesday, calling for the inclusion of at least six Sindh players in every Pakistan squad along with the reinstatement of wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfaraz Ahmed as captain.
Hussain said that a lobby was behind Sarfaraz’s removal and he decided to table the resolution, after the Punjab Assembly moved a motion to remove Sarfaraz from captaincy.
The resolution was adopted unanimously by the members in the session chaired by Sindh Assembly Speaker Agha Siraj Durrani.
It is worth mentioning here that Sarfaraz was removed as Pakistan’s captain from all formats after the Men in Green were clean swept by Sri Lanka.
