Mohammad Hafeez not interested in chief selector’s role

Fixers should not be given chance - Mohammad Hafeez

Former Pakistan cricket captain, Mohammad Hafeez, has politely declined the offer to become the Chief Selector of the national cricket team. After the departure of Haroon Rasheed from the position, the new management committee, led by Zaka Ashraf, is actively searching for the right candidate to fill this crucial role.

In recent days, discussions were held with Hafeez regarding the Chief Selector position. However, the former cricketer has expressed his interest in working at the grassroots level instead. He is focused on nurturing young talent and contributing to the development of cricket from its very foundation.

Another prominent former cricketer, Rashid Latif, has also turned down any position in the PCB due to prior engagements and commitments that prevent him from taking on such a role.

The name of another former Pakistan wicket-keeper, Moin Khan, was suggested as a potential candidate for Chief Selector by individuals close to him. However, Moin seems hesitant to get involved in cricket affairs, as he is concerned about any potential impact on his son Azam Khan’s cricketing career. He fears that his son’s performance may come under unnecessary pressure if he takes up the position.

With the Asia Cup 2023 and World Cup 2023 approaching, the search for a suitable Chief Selector has become crucial. Some former cricketers are hesitant to take up the role, fearing potential criticism if the team’s performance does not meet expectations.

The authorities are now on the lookout for a star cricketer with a deep understanding of modern cricket to fill the position of Chief Selector. Former Pakistan captain, Misbah-ul-Haq, is being considered for an important role in the near future.

However, the decision-making process has been temporarily delayed as Zaka Ashraf has traveled to South Africa for ICC meetings. It is expected that he will meet with several former star cricketers in the coming days to discuss the position, gauge their interest, and assess their availability before a final decision is made.
