Misbah-ul-Haq to step down from Pakistan chief national selector position

Just every week succeeding the reports of Pakistan Cricket Board reviewing Misbah-ul-Haq’s one-year performance of Pakistan’s head coach and chief selector, the previous captain is about to quit from the latter role. Misbah-ul-Haq will, however, continue because of the head coach of the national team.

It is expected that Misbah Ul Haq who is the former test captain of PCB will be stepping down from a major responsibility of national selector as he conveyed through a media conference. Last week, on October 8, it had been revealed that the board’s CEO Wasim Khan and Chairman Ehsan Mani would be meeting with Misbah, before the house series against Pakistan, to debate his 1-year performance. The meeting was alleged to discuss PCB’s new ethics code with Misbah to let him know that no employee of the national board is allowed to carry dual jobs.

It is reported that Misbah will have a hand in the upcoming series which is against zimbabwe as he might have some future plans. Whether he has any plans to undertake out youngsters against them or not,” Wasim Khan had said.

According to reports, Chairman Mani had already expressed his discontent with Misbah overtaking domestic cricket matters to the govt. It is reported that Mani and Khan were disappointed with Misbah and Ali as they took the matter country’s PM regarding the need of departmental teams to participate in domestic cricket.
Misbah-ul-Haq was appointed with the twin role of the top coach alongside the chief selector of the Pakistan cricket team last year in September, after PCB terminated Mickey Arthur’s contract following Pakistan’s exit from the planet Cup, alongside Waqar Younis taking the reins because of the bowling coach.
