Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq has asked for more time to take a decision on the chief selector’s position offered to him by the Pakistan Cricket Board(PCB).
A board official said that PCB Chairman Shahryar Khan had invited Inzamam – who is currently the coach of Afghanistan cricket team – about heading up the new selection panel.

“Shaharyar has offered Inzamam the chief selector’s position and also agreed to some points raised by the former captain who is now head coach of the Afghanistan team,” the official said.

Reports suggest that Inzamam has been given considerable authority and also an assurance of a suitable financial package by the PCB chief since the former batsman is presently paid around USD 12,000 by the Afghanistan Cricket Board.

“Shaharyar has offered Inzamam the chief selector’s position and also agreed to some points raised by the former captain who is now head coach of the Afghanistan team,” a Board official was quoted as saying to the Press Trust of India.

The official said Inzamam had told the PCB chief he had a contract with the Afghanistan Board until December this year.

“He has also asked for time so that he can speak to the Afghanistan cricket officials and reach an amicable agreement with them as he does not want to leave them in acrimonious circumstances,” the official said.

The news was welcomed by Pakistan legend Waqar Younis, Inzamam’s former teammate, whose second stint as Pakistan coach ended after two years  in the job.

Inzamam joined Afghanistan as their head coach last year and has done a decent job with them.

Pakistan Cricket Board is also on the hunt for a new head coach after Waqar Younis stepped down from that post.
