[RxPG] Karachi, May 9 - Opening batsman Imran Farhat has been reported to the Pakistani cricket board for misbehaving with the selection committee over his omission from an Abu Dhabi-bound one-day squad, news reports said Wednesday.

Quoting a source in the Pakistan Cricket Board -, Dawn reported that chief selector Salahuddin 'Sallu' had lodged a complaint against Imran for using harsh words with him during a telephonic conversation Monday, questioning the selection committee's judgement over picking the squad for the Gulf event.

The complaint had been handed over to the PCB chairman's office.

'Imran apparently told the chief selector that he had given up a lucrative league contract in Britain to join the Pakistan camp in Lahore and deserved to be included in the squad for the three-match series against Sri Lanka commencing on May 18,' Dawn quoted its source as saying.

'He also accused the selection committee of attempting to ruin his career,' the source added.

'Sallu was clearly upset after the call from the young opener and told him point blank that he was not answerable to either him - or his father-in-law, Mohammad Ilyas,' the source said.

On Monday, former Test cricketer Ilyas had also threatened the selectors over the axing of his son-in-law from the ODI contest. The selectors had brought his outburst to the notice of PCB chief Nasim Ashraf.

The source also said Imran called on the chief selector later on Tuesday to offer his apologies and assured him of complete cooperation in future.

Fellow openers Salman Butt and Imran Nazir edged out Imran for the Abu Dhabi event since their batting records in domestic and international games were clearly better than the Lahore-born player.
