Karachi, July 13 (ANI): The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is likely to appoint former Test cricketer Iqbal Qasim as the chairman of the national cricket team’s selection committee.
According to sources, PCB chief Ijaz Butt will hold talks with Qasim today (Monday) to discuss various issues, including his (Qasim’s) appointment to the post, The News reports.
The chief selector’s post has been lying since former leg spinner Abdul Qadir resigned a month ago, citing incompatibility with the PCB.
Qadir had then criticized the omission of fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar from the World T20 Championship squad.
He accused coach Intikhab Alam and team manager Yawar Saeed of being behind the pacer’s exit from the squad. (ANI)
