Kamran, 31, who has played 53 Tests, 154 one-day internationals and 50 T20 matches for his country was dropped after the recent Champions Trophy along with two other senior players, Shoaib Malik and Imran Farhat.
     
Ironically the national selectors and the national team management decided to give the responsibilities of wicketkeeping to Kamran's younger brother, Umar who is primarily a middle-order batsman.
     
"Umar is by nature a specialist attacking batsman. Whoever has decided and given him the responsibility of keeping as well should be held responsible for whatever happens," Kamran said.
     
"I would like to see Umar focus on his batting as he is very talented and I am not sure about giving him additional responsibility of keeping. But let us see what happens now," Kamran added.
     
Umar kept in the first two ODIs on the current tour of the West Indies, doing a tidy job behind the stumps besides scoring a half century in the second match.
     
Kamran said that he didn't believe his international cricket career was over. "I am only 31 and I know what I am capable of. I am just more comfortable batting in the opening slot as I like to play the new ball. In the Champions Trophy and before that I had to bat lower down the order as per requirement of the management. But my personal preference is to open the innings."
