Sami Aslam bashed Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for continuously ignoring him despite performances in domestic cricket and said such behavior forced him to move to the United States of America (USA).
Speaking to YouTube channel ‘The Cricketeria Show’, Aslam shared that PCB didn’t approach him even after he announced moving to the USA to play cricket for them.
“PCB never approached me in this regard, even after I traveled here in the USA last week,” he said.
“I received an offer from USA cricket in March and since then I was in contact with them. But, somewhere in my mind, there was hope despite all the ignorance that I will get a chance.
“I waited for a call before the England tour. Then, hoped to get a chance on New Zealand tour but results were the same. At last, I was really disappointed and disheartened and decided to move on and grab this opportunity,” he maintained.
The 24-years-old cricketer said he will be playing all domestic cricket and league cricket from the USA before becoming eligible to represent their national team.
“I have signed a proper contract with them according to which I will be eligible to represent them in international cricket after three years. Meanwhile, I will be playing all domestic cricket and league cricket here and the USA’s national coaches will be monitoring my progress and fitness throughout,” he concluded.
