Former Pakistan batsman Haroon Rashid has been named chief selector by PCB chairman Najam Sethi, who said the rest of the selection panel would be named later.
Haroon played 23 Tests and 12 ODIs for Pakistan –
Haroon Rashid, 69, previously served as Pakistan’s chief selector between 2015 and 2016 and will take over from Shahid Afridi, who was named interim chief selector by the new PCB regime under Sethi.
Rashid played 23 Tests and 12 ODIs for Pakistan between 1977 and 1983. He served as the PCB’s Director of Cricket Operations and Pakistan team manager in addition to his previous role as a selector.
On December 22 last year, Rashid was appointed in the 14-member Cricket Management Committee to run the PCB, but will now step down from the post.
Sethi said –
“Aaron has now resigned from the management committee as we do not want a conflict of interest as he is now the chief selector.”
