Inzamam-ul-Haq resigns from role of Pakistan Chief Selector amid team’s poor show in World Cup

Former Pakistan captain and cricketer, Inzamam-Ul-Haq, has officially resigned from his position as the chairman of both the senior and junior selection committees, as confirmed by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Monday. 

This decision came in the wake of Pakistan’s four consecutive losses in the ongoing ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023.

Inzamam cited concerns over allegations of conflict of interest in the team selection process for the World Cup as a primary reason for his resignation. 

Notably, the PCB had established a five-member committee to investigate these allegations.

In his statement released by the PCB, Inzamam expressed his willingness to step aside to allow for a transparent inquiry into the conflict of interest accusations. He stated, “I am stepping down from the post to offer the PCB the opportunity to conduct a transparent inquiry about the conflict of interest allegations raised in the media. If the committee finds me not guilty, I will resume my role as the chief selector.”
