Shahid Khan Afridi, a former captain and prominent player, has been appointed as Pakistan’s temporary chief selector, it was revealed on Saturday.
A temporary selection committee has reportedly been named by the newly established management committee, which is led by Najam Sethi.
The selection committee will be headed by Afridi, and members will also include Rao Iftikhar Anjum and Abdul Razzaq. Haroon Rashid has assumed the convener’s position in the meantime.
Shahid Afridi had already praised Shehbaz Sharif, the prime minister, for selecting him to serve on the PCB executive committee.
The former well-known player expressed his eagerness to help Pakistan cricket at the grassroots level but acknowledged that his long-term place in the current system was unclear.
The Pakistan Cricket Board makes significant changes just days after Shehbaz Sharif appointed Najam Sethi to chair a committee charged with overseeing PCB operations for the following three months.
