Misbah-ul Haq former Test and ODI captain of Pakistan cricket team was currently serving as “Head Coach” and “Chief Selector” for Pakistan cricket. He was appointed by the new PCB administration in September 2019. This first of its kind appointment was made along with several other measures in order to turn things around for Pakistan Cricket Board.
Misbah-ul-Haq was under immense pressure due to dismal recent performances by the Pakistani International Cricket team. The pressure and criticism went up hill when Pakistan lost the Test series against England Cricket Team back in August.
Misbah also expressed his displeasure and took the responsibility of poor show in England.
Misbah has now resigned from the “Chief Selector” position sighting a removal move from PCB. He will still keep the “Head Coach” position and stay with the Pakistan team.
His resignation came right after a review of his one-year performance which is indeed not so bright after all.
This decision of quitting Chief selectors portfolio is welcome by most of the critics and cricket fraternity. He addressed media announcing his decision of stepping down at Gaddafi Stadium Lahore (HQ of PCB).
The New chief Selector will be appointed on 1st December till that point Misbah will continue with his duties as per contract. This means that Misbah ul Haq will still announce the selected team for ZIMBABWE Tour scheduled from 19-OCT. and also for New Zealand tour scheduled later.
Alia Rasheed who broke the news a day before the actual announcement termed the news as beneficial for both parties. Sikandar Bakht a former Test Player and Sports critic on GEO NEWS said that the decision is a “POSITIVE U-TURN” and welcomed the development.
