ISLAMABAD - Former captain Rameez Raja feels the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) selectors should make it clear to batsman Younus Khan whether they need him for the 2015 World Cup or not.

Rameez said the board and selectors should have handled the Younus ouster affair more sensibly and diplomatically. "I can understand why Younus has reacted the way he did and in the end the selectors have to be clear if they need him for the World Cup or not. But at same time Younus is 36 and he also has to decide his future career himself," he said.

Speaking about the illegal bowling actions of players, Rameez said the ICC needs to tweak its new protocol on illegal bowling actions to ensure the ‘doosra’ remains part of the sport. "The ICC appears to have made up its mind to show no leniency to bowlers who they feel try to bypass the system. But the ICC also needs to ensure unorthodox bowlers don't fade away in cricket," Rameez said.

Rameez felt that the ICC could increase the limit for bowlers to straighten their elbow to up to 18 to 20 degrees from the present 15 degrees allowed under the law.

"I can tell you as a commentator these unorthodox bowlers bring excitement to cricket and the ‘doosra’ delivery has become a legitimate weapon for an off-spinner, they can't do without it now," he said.

Rameez said a little tweak in the laws will be good for the sport. “Life is hard for bowlers nowadays and it is not easy for them. I think there is nothing wrong with a review of the new protocol system," he said.Rameez said Pakistan would now have to plan for the World Cup accordingly. "Instead of blaming others for our problems I think we seriously need to look at removing flaws in our cricket system," he said.
