Inzy to step down as Pakistan’s chief selector

FIRST POST, LAHORE

Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq has announced that he will no longer be the chief selector of the Pakistan men’s team after July 30.

The 49-year-old Inzamam, who was appointed chief selector in April 2016, said he would be willing to work in another post for the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) so long as it did not involve selection.

“I think it is time to step down. I will complete my term that ends on July 30,” said Inzamam on Wednesday during a press conference after Pakistan’s dismal showing in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

“When I returned (from the United Kingdom), I told the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) that I did not want to continue with my position. I joined in 2016 and I have spent a good time here. Now, I have decided that new people should come, with a new thinking and ideas. I thank the PCB and the team who respected my choices,” he said.

During his time as chief selector, Pakistan peaked to No.1 in the ICC Test rankings in August 2016, won the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 and topped the T20I rankings for the first time in November 2017. Pakistan have been sitting on top of the T20I tree since January 2018.
