Inzi resigns as Pakistan chief selector

By our correspondent
LAHORE: Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-Ul-Haq has resigned as the chairman of the national men’s selection committee and junior selection committee, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) confirmed today.
He was appointed as the chairman of the national men’s committee on 7 August 2023 and was also appointed chairman of the junior men’s selection committee earlier this month.
“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,” Inzamam has been quoted as saying.
“The PCB appreciates and acknowledges Inzamam’s decision to voluntarily step down during this investigation,” the PCB press release said.
Meanwhile the Board has constituted a five-member fact finding committee to investigate allegations in respect of conflict of interest reported in the media pertaining to the team selection process.
The committee will submit its report and any recommendations to the PCB Management in an expeditious manner.
There have been talks for the last few days that Inzamam has been a partner of a players management company which Inzamam denied while talking to a private television.
“I have no connection with the same company and people are saying things without investigation and that is why I decided to resign from the post so that the PCB probe committee could investigate the matter independently,” Inzamam said.
“However it definitely hurts you when anyone talks like this without any proof,” Inzi said.
