Inzy agreed on condition that he gets a 3-yr term
Pakistan’s former captain Inzamam-ul-Haq agreed to become the new chief selector only after being assured in principle by the PCB that he would be given a three-year term.
“Inzamam made it clear to the board he would only resign as the head coach of the Afghanistan team and become the new chief selector if he was given time to prepare a squad for the next World Cup in 2019 in England,” an official source in the board told a news agency on Wednesday.
The board approached Inzamam to take over as chief selector after it dissolved the previous national selection committee headed by Haroon Rasheed after Pakistan’s dismal show in the Asia Cup and World T20.
“Inzamam has ensured that the board chairman Shaharyar Khan accepted a couple of his conditions before he spoke to the Afghanistan cricket board and sent in his resignation although his contract with them was till December 2016,” the source disclosed.
The source said one of the main conditions included that Inzamam be given time for at least three years so that he could work towards building a strong side for the next World Cup.
