Former Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq became the first person in the history of cricket to be appointed in a dual role as head coach and the chief selector of the Pakistan national team last year.
However, his dual duty is not getting longer as Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is to relinquish Misbah of the chief selector role after Pakistan's tour of England as PCB is not happy with the work done by Misbah-ul-Haq as the chief selector of the national team.
As per a report in PTI, sources in Pakistan Cricket Board have confirmed that the board is in talks with a high-profile former fast bowler to become the new chief selector. Misbah will continue in his role as the head coach of the national team.
“The PCB now feels that it is best if the burden was reduced on Misbah and allow him to focus on his job as head coach as there are a number of important ICC events coming up in the next three years,” a source was quoted as saying by PTI.
“Wasim Khan the PCB CEO was in England recently and has also observed from close quarters how Misbah is handling both responsibilities. Wasim also spoke to Misbah in England and having a new chief selector is now an option for the Board," the source added.
