LAHORE: Pakistani faster bowler Junaid Khan, who was dropped from World Cup 2019 squad, has recorded a ‘silent protest’ with the section committee of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

The section committee is headed by former skipper Inzamam-ul-Haq.

Sharing his tight-lipped picture on Twitter, Junaid Khan writes, “I don’t want to say anything. Truth is bitter. (Sach karwa hotha hai)”.

PCB has not commented on the matter, however, there is a chance that an action would be taken against Junaid Khan for violating the Code of Conduct.

Later, three hours after sharing the photo on Twitter, Junaid Khan removed it.

Junaid Khan was dropped from final 15-member squad of Pakistan for World Cup 2019.

He was replaced by Wahab Riaz in a surprise move.

Pakistan World Cup squad: Sarfraz Ahmed (captain), Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam, Haris Sohail, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Asif Ali, Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Hasnain, Hasan Ali, Wahab Riaz, Shaheen Shah Afridi.
