Inzamam-ul-Haq to Step Down as Pakistan’s Chief Selector
Former Pakistan skipper Inzamam-ul-Haq on Wednesday (July 17), has revealed that he will resign from the post of the chief selector for Pakistan national cricket team.
The veteran cricketer Inzamam in his press conference revealed that he will put down his papers following the completion of his tenure. Pertinently, Inzamam’s contract will culminate by the end of July, 2019.
“I realised that I did all I could. But I will resign after my tenure is up at the end of the month,” Inzamam told during a news conference.
However, the 49-year-old Multan-born Inzamam expressed that he would be keen to help Pakistan cricket. He reiterated that he’s willing to work for the separate post for the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Inzamam added that the procedure should not have to be based on the selection process.
Inzamam-ul-Haq doesn’t want to be a part of the selection process:
The former Pakistan cricketer Inzamam further maintained that he had always been enthusiastic about cricket. But, he is not interested in partaking in the selection course.
“Cricket is my passion but I do not want to be part of the selection process,” Inzamam added.
Also, he had reiterated that he is satisfied with the way Pakistan had delivered at the World Cup. He also remarked that he luck didn’t favour Men in Green as they had faced an exit to finish fifth in the league standings.
“Unfortunately we lost the opening match and it difficult to make up the run rate in later matches,” Inzamam concluded.
Earlier, Pakistan were at par with the Black Caps. But they failed to qualify as the four semi-finals due to a poor net run-rate.
Meanwhile, reports suggested that former Pakistan Test opener Mohsin Khan may succeed Inzamam as the new chief selector of the Pakistan cricket team.
Recently, the anguished fans had criticised Inzamam for his team selection. It already saw his nephew Imam-ul-Haq defending his uncle for picking the team.
