Muhammad Wasim to quit chief selector job?

Muhammad Wasim to quit chief selector job

The chief selector of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Muhammad Wasim may be omitted from the post soon as he was left confused after one of the journalists asked a relevant question in a press release.

The man asked if announcing Pakistan T20 World Cup 2021 squad was his last task, Wasim laughed with confusing looks glancing at the moderator, and said such questions can be asked later.

“Waseem, the way Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is undergoing a change, do you think this is the last team you will be announcing as a chief selector?” asked a journalist.

The chief selector said,

“The press conference is about the World Cup T20 squad. We can take other questions after this, please.”

Although after denying it, he himself progressed with the topic saying that he will take charge of the duties until PCB’s top management asks him to do and will leave instantly once being ordered to go.

“Look, I am doing the job that I have been given,” he said. “I will continue to do this till I am told to do it. I will stop doing it when I am told not to do it anymore,” he added.

“This is the only way I can answer this question. Neither can I predict the future, nor can you. All we can do is focus on the job we have been given and that’s what I am doing,” he added.

Ramiz Raja, who is most likely to be PCB’s new chairman soon, is already portraying his powers dominating the system. Raja may want the entire new system with new management taking its hold.

Also, Misbah ul Haq and Waqar Younis have either been sacked or retired from the respective positions of the head coach and bowling coach of Pakistan Cricket. The shocking news came after the announcement of Pakistan’s squad.

To some, it looked like a forced retirement on seeing the naive statements as the reason for sacking down a few days before the big event. While others say that it might be a clever decision of themselves to let go of criticism for choosing an inappropriate squad.
