Shoaib unlikely to get central contract from the P
KARACHI: Former Pakistani Captain and all-rounder Shoaib Malik is likely to lose his place in the team and his central contract with the PCB after a poor series in England 2010, ANI reports.Unnamed sources cited by ANI stated on Tuesday that the board was not interested in continuing with the all-rounder who has failed to boost or even support Pakistanís inexperienced middle order in England as they succumbed to scores below 100-runs on more than one occasion.
The sources said that top officials of the PCB would not renew the central contract with Shoaib as selectors were disappointed with his performance.
The PCB selectors are to meet the chairman later this month to discuss and select players for what will be an important season ahead that includes World Cup 2011, the Our Sources reports.
After getting penalized by the PCB for creating unrest within the team and raising politics, it was rumoured that Shoaib was selected because of a recommendation made by a top government official, but the all-rounder still failed to cement his position in the team.
Shoaib`s poor form was reflected by his performances in England where he has scored only 89 runs in the three Test matches. Furthermore, he scored only 46 runs in last monthís Asia Cup.
