Pakistani pacer Junaid Khan has not taken his removal from the World Cup squad kindly, taking to Twitter to post a picture of himself with duct tape over his mouth.

“I don’t want to say anything. Truth is bitter,” says the caption of the picture.

Junaid was initially selected in the 15-man squad for the World Cup but has been dropped after being given a chance in just two games against England in which he claimed two wickets but gave away 142 runs in 18 overs.

Wahab Riaz and Mohammad Amir have been called up to the squad in place of Junaid and all-rounder Faheem Ashraf, with one change made in the batting line-up as well where Asif Ali replaces Abid Ali.

    what is Junaid Khan so upset about? his performance in England ODIs was crap. He has no right to gag post himself. classical case of expecting that earned the right to be in the team just because he was selected! his performances have been up and down through out his career and sadly even his English conditions experience did not come to bear fruit against the recently concluded whitewash by English. Wahab is way better at least he can bowl 95 mph which Junaid cannot. so please keep your antics to yourself. no one is impressed. if anyone should be demonstrating it is Fawad Alam the only player who really deserves to be in the team and is not at the expense of personal favorites being played. And look at Fawad Alam greatness as a player he wishes team Pakistan all the success despite not being selected when he is the best batsman in the country and look at Junaid making so much drama and he has nothing to back it up with. Classic case of Pakistani mentality.

    Mr. Faraz

    In England:
    Wahab – 4 wickets, average 96 & economy of 6.7
    Junaid – 11 wickets, average 36 & economy of 5.6.
    you are talking about recent Series? so tell me who Bowled Well throw the series ?
    Why Hasnain in the Team ?
    Fawad Alam is not capable To hit a six and in England your inning required Sixes to set a good total.
