Inzamam ul Haq resigns as PCB chief selector

Veteran Pakistani cricketer Inzamam-ul-Haq has resigned from the post of chief selector of the Pakistan team after the team’s poor performance in the Cricket World Cup 2023. Inzamam-ul-Haq is also facing investigation over allegations of his stake in Yazoo International Limited, a company linked to player agent Talha Rahmani. Rahmani represents many prominent Pakistani cricketers including Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan and Shaheen Shah Afridi. This has become a conflict of interest.

It has also become a matter of investigation whether Inzamam’s dual role as chief selector and shareholder in the company that represents top cricketers is influencing player selection decisions. The dispute comes after significant disagreements between the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and players over central contracts.

Inzamam will get a huge amount!
It is being told that if Pakistan Cricket Board removes Inzamam before his tenure, then they will have to pay a huge amount to the former cricketer. According to the contract that the board has signed with Inzamam, if the PCB decides to terminate his tenure prematurely, they will have to pay Inzamam a huge sum of Rs 15 million. This is a monthly salary of Rs. 2.5 million over a period of six months.

Pakistan cricket team is currently placed sixth in the World Cup points table after just 2 wins against Sri Lanka and Netherlands. Despite their chances of reaching the semi-finals being almost zero, Babar Azam is now looking for a win against Bangladesh. Pakistan has come to India after a long gap of 7 years. The team reached Hyderabad and stayed there for 15 days. During this, Pakistani players seemed happy with the hospitality of the Indian government and appreciated the Hyderabadi food.
