Newly appointed chief selector of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Mohammad Wasim is scheduled to attend his first meeting next week as confirmed by reliable sources.
Wasim was chosen last month as a replacement of Misbah ul Haq who was occupying dual posts. The head-coach-cum chief selector of the PCB is now remaining with only the head coach’s post and is likely to be sacked soon from this as well.
Misbah was appointed for his dual role last year after Mickey Arther and Grant Flower’s contract ended. However, his performances with the team have not been satisfying to continue his services.
Mohammad Wasim, in the upcoming meeting, will be discussing the retention and sacking of players for the upcoming South Africa series. All the coaches of the PCB cricket association are supposed to be present at the meeting that is most likely to be organized between 10th-14th January.

On the other hand, as Misbah is soon to be sacked from the head coach’s post, Andy Flower and Gray Kristen are the two strong candidates for the vacancy.
The South Africa team will reach Pakistan on 16th January whereas, the Pakistan players will be isolated for two weeks in a bio-secure bubble before the tour commences officially. Below is the schedule:
