Pakistan Cricket Board not extending Inzamam’s contract

Vastavam web: The Pakistan Cricket Board has decided not to extend the contract of chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq following the national team’s failure to the reach the World Cup semifinals, according to sources. Inzamam, sources said, had shown interest in the extension of his contract for another year but the PCB has decided to go for a new selection committee.

The contract of Inzamam, a veteran of 120 Tests, ended with the World Cup after occupying the post since 2016. The name of former Test opener Mohsin Hasan Khan is being tipped to become the new chief selector as he has also worked in this position in the past with good results and has also served as interim head coach of the national team. “Pakistan’s failure to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup has led to the decision to release Inzamam,” a source told.

But his nephew, Pakistan’s opening batsman Imam-ul-Haq has defended his uncle at a press conference in Lahore on Tuesday.
