LAHORE: Chairman PCB Ejaz Butt has assured Saturday the skipper Pakistan cricket team Shoaib Malik to seek his (Malik) consultation in the selection of national cricket team.
He said this during meeting with Shoaib Malik and selection committee at Gaddafi Stadium here in Lahore.
Shoaib Malik said after the meeting that the selection for national team, for next tour, would be made on mutual consultation of captain and selection committee. He quoted PCB chairman as saying that no in-disciplinary act would be allowed and only the in-form players would become part of the team.

Meanwhile, chairman selection committee said that team selection, for series in Abu Dhabi against West Indies, would be evaluated on the performance of players in the first two matches of Toronto T20.
