LAHORE Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram will look into the causes of Pakistan teams bad performance in Australia in place of Haroon Rahseed. Haroon Rahseed, who is National Cricket Academy Director, resigned as inquiry committee member headed by PCB COO Wasim Bari. Pakistan team was entirely whitewashed in their Test, ODIs and one T20 match by the Australians in the Down Under series. AFP adds: Former bowling great Wasim Akram Monday called for positive steps in Pakistan cricket following its humiliating defeats in Australia, saying the team needed a strong approach to progress. Pakistan cricket must move on after what happened in Australia, Wasim told AFP. No one was expecting such disappointing results, especially in the one-day matches but we need to move on as we have no dearth of talent. Australia beat Pakistan 3-0 in Tests their fourth straight whitewash before winning all five one-day matches and the only Twenty20 international in a tour which finished last Friday. Chief selector Iqbal Qasim resigned following the defeat which also forced the Pakistan Cricket Board to name a six-man committee to probe the causes of the debacle, with Wasim Akram as one of its members. Wasim, arguably the best left-arm paceman ever to play cricket, said the committees aim was not to punish or sack people. The idea is to evaluate the reasons of defeats and not to punish anyone. Through this evaluation we need to give a cushion to the Pakistan team, said Wasim, who played 104 Tests and 356 one-day matches for Pakistan. He said Pakistan needed one good captain for all three forms of the game... because we are getting not even one good captain. He said it made no sense to talk of separate Test, one-day and Twenty20 captains, and suggested Shahid Afridi for the unified role. Afridi can lead the team in all three forms, he is a quality cricketer but needs to learn the rules of the game. I hope he has learnt his lessons after what happened in Perth, he said, referring to a ball-tampering incident. Afridi was banned for two Twenty20 matches after he was caught by television cameras biting the ball to change its condition, in violation of the rules. Wasim said he also noticed that the team lacked spirit, the will to win and aggression with their body language after Sydney defeat was very abysmal. We werent expecting such disappointing results because Australia is not as strong an outfit as it used to be, with lots of great players retired, he said. But I still think we need to put all that behind us. Pakistan snubs coach, Akmal for England Twenty20 Pakistan on Monday left out coach Intikhab Alam and wicket-keeper batsman Kamran Akmal from its 14-man side to face England in two Twenty20 matches. There is speculation Alam will be sacked over Pakistans humiliating 3-0 Test and 5-0 one-day series whitewash in Australia last month, but a Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) official denied he had been dismissed. Alam is not sacked, PCB chief operating officer Wasim Bari told AFP. There is no decision on Alams future as yet, but it will be taken subsequently, he added. PCB has ordered a six-man evaluation committee to look into why Pakistan was routed in Australia, summoning Alam, team manager Abdul Raquib and captain Mohammad Yousuf to appear for questioning on Friday and Saturday. Chief selector Iqbal Qasim has already resigned following the defeat in Australia, refusing to reverse his decision despite a request from the PCB. A panel of four selectors, without any chief selector, chose the team for the two Twenty20 matches, said Bari. Akmal is our main player and since we want to groom other players as well we have rested Akmal, said Bari. Akmal was criticised for poor wicket-keeping in Australia, dropping several important catches. Shoaib Malik, sacked as captain in January last year after Pakistans 2-1 home series defeat against Sri Lanka, will lead the team in the Twenty20 matches, to be played in Dubai on February 19 and 20. Pakistans original Twenty20 captain Shahid Afridi will be part of the squad but cannot play in the first match following a ban of two Twenty20 international matches for ball-tampering. Afridi was caught on television cameras biting the ball during the fifth and final one-day international against Australia at Perth, which is against the rules of the game. Pacemen Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamir are also not part of the team. Aamir is recovering from a groin injury and Asif was not considered after UAE authorities refused to revoke travelling restrictions imposed on him. Asif was deported from Dubai in June 2008 after he was found in possession of opium. He was detained for 19 days. The squad includes promising pacemen in Wahab Riaz and Mohammad Talha. The team will be managed by Yawar Saeed, who relinquished his post after the Champions Trophy in October last year. Saeed replaced Raqeeb who managed the team on Australia tour. There will be no head coach but former batsman Ijaz Ahmed, who coached Pakistans junior team to the runners-up spot in the Under-19 World Cup last month, will be batting and fielding coach. Alam said he heard of his exclusion through the media. I am ready to face the committee and only after then, decide the next course of action, he told AFP. Squad: Imran Nazir, Imran Farhat, Khalid Latif, Umer Akmal, Shoaib Malik (captain), Fawad Alam, Shahid Afridi, Abdul Razzaq, Sarfraz Ahmad, Umar Gul, Saeed Ajmal, Yasir Arafat, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Talha.
