Don’t have magic wand to change Pak’s fortunes soon: Inzy
The newly appointed PCB chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq on Monday made it clear that he does not possess a magic wand to immediately effect a course correction in the fortunes of the national cricket team.
Inzamam urged the people to be patient with the team.
“I don’t have a magic wand and there is a lot we need to do right in Pakistan cricket to build a strong team.
Immediately my task is to ensure we pick a balanced and confident squad for the tour to England,” Inzamam told a media conference in Lahore.
Former Test spinner Tauseef Ahmed, former Test opener Wajahatullah Wasti and former Pakistan
allrounder Wasim Haider were announced as the new selection committee members by Inzamam.
Inzamam said that the PCB has promised to provide the new selection committee full independence to work with freedom and without interference.
“I have told the PCB that I want total independence to work with a free mind and pick the best players and they have assured me it will be done,” Inzamam said.
PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan said he was glad that Inzamam accepted the responsibility.
“I am very happy Inzamam accepted to take up this responsibility. Because we in the PCB have a lot of respect and regard for him and his achievements,” Khan said. Inzamam, who resigned from his post as head coach of Afghanistan to take up the PCB assignment, also pointed out that it would take some time to put things right in the national team and domestic cricket.
