After being released from Afghanistan's World Cup squad, wicket-keeper Mohammad Shahzad has finally come out and spoken on the issue. Ousted from the squad after a knee injury, Shahzad, in a statement revealed that his knee was 100% and that he was removed from the side for other resons. 

Releasing his message through journalist M. Ibrahim Momand's Twitter handle, the Afghan opener seems visibly upset. 

“I have no problem or injury & fully fit but @ACBofficials pulled me out of the squad by force without any consultation”Says @MShahzad077 who is ruled out of @cricketworldcup due to a knee injury in his recent voice clip to a media in #Kabul as he is set to return home tomorrow.”

His revelations are going to add further turmoil to the contingent, who are struggling in the ongoing World Cup. Shahzad was replaced by Ikram Ali Khil in the squad after the ICC Evident Technical Committee approved the move. 

The opener, often criticized for his figure, had a torrid run in the tournament, scoring 0 and 7 in the two games. Khil replaced him in the game against Sri Lanka, but failed to create an impact as he could make only 2 in 22 balls.
