“Wherever the Pakistan team is going, they are not getting a chance to play against the main players. When we went to South Africa in April, they sent their players for the IPL. With the upcoming NZ series in Pakistan, eight NZ players have opted out of the tour to play IPL. Even in the recent England tour, the whole England team got changed due to COVID-19 in the camp,” Inzamam said on his Youtube channel.

“I feel that the Pakistan team is not getting proper practice because they are not getting to play against the main players. What is the ICC doing? What message are they trying to give? Players are giving importance to private leagues and not international cricket. It’s like degrading international cricket. If you see the whole sequence, it’s happening only against Pakistan,” he added.

Inzamam feels that due to the unavailability of quality players, Pakistan is unable to prepare for the T20 World Cup in the most convincing manner.

Besides Williamson and Boult Kyle Jamieson, Lockie Ferguson, Jimmy Neesham, Mitchell Santer, Tim Seifert are among New Zealand players who have pulled out of the Pakistan series.

The 2nd phase of IPL 2021 will be played from September 19 to October 15 in the UAE and Oman. The ICC T20 World Cup 2021 kicks off on October 17 with the qualifying rounds. Following the ICC event, the NZ players will travel to India for T20I and Test series against the hosts.
