LAHORE: Chief selector of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Abdul Qadir has said that the announcement of the national team for the series against Australia should be made after April 1.

The former leg-spinner said while talking with Geo News that he would suggest to chairman PCB Ijaz Butt tomorrow that the national team should be announced after April 1 so that a few new players may be considered for selection.

Abdul Qadir said that this is his desire to form the strongest team for the important series against Australia. Thus, it would be better to wait for the completion of the one-day tournament in the country.
