LAHORE- National selectors feel uneasy over Pakistan team selection for the upcoming India tour being commenced from December 25 to January 6, it has been learnt.

Pakistan will announce team for Indian tour after the conclusion of Faysalbank National Twenty20 tournament after watching the performances of players to be concluded on December 9, a source revealed.

The selection committee members are witnessing the match in the three different venues of the city and are satisfied with the performance of youngsters, particularly Haris Sohail and Umar Amin as they are proving their mettle consistently and helping their side to win their respective matches.

If Pakistani selectors picked the players on merit for the Indian tour and if, they played according to their potential and beat India on her soil then the selectors will be praised for the best selection while players failure to put selectors and cricketers future at stake.

Chief selector Iqbal Qasim claimed that the selection committee cannot afford to take chances with new players for India tour because of the pressure involved in the Pakistan-India games.

The selected senior players will have to deliver for Pakistan in India and if, they fail to prove their credentials they might lose their places in the national squad. He stated that he cannot take risk in the tour.

"We will be banking on our senior players to deliver and perform and if they don't prove their credentials in India then their international career will be at stake" he added. "I don't think it would be wise to experiment too much with our selection for the tour of India," Qasim added. "It's difficult to say whether it's the last chance for some of our players as it all depends on how they perform. Fans and media will want the Pakistani team to perform well particularly the senior players," Qasim added.

The victory and defeat are part of the game but the arch-rivals peoples do not want defeat at the hands of either side and if any side lose then fans held responsible for players and captain for the outcome of the match and protest over their failure.

The Indian series will be followed by the tour of South Africa which will gauge the techniques of the Pakistan batsmen with the home team having the services of some of the world's finest bowlers on bouncy pitches, said Qasim.

The emerging players may get place in the Pakistan squad in the South Africa series to get international exposure. Conditions in South Africa will be totally different as there are bouncy pitches. Pakistan will induct a few youngsters in the team will be announced for the tour of South Africa so they can learn from seniors colleagues, Qasim said.

Earlier, Pakistan had recalled Kamran Akmal, Shoaib Malik and Imran Nazir for the Twemty20 series against Australia held in United Arab Emirates and the ICC World Twenty20 Cup played in Sri Lanka but they fail to prove their mettle. Abdul Razzak who was in World T20 squad was provided with a chance and he justified his selection and helped Pakistan win the match.

Pakistan's tour of India includes three One Day Internationals (ODIs) and a couple of T20s, starting with the first fixture at Bangalore on December 25.
