LAHORE: Shahid Afridi, a former captain of Pakistan, has been named the temporary chair of the Men’s National Selection Committee for the home series against New Zealand by the PCB Management Committee.
Abdul Razzaq and Rao Iftikhar Anjum will also be on the panel, while Haroon Rashid, a member of the management committee, will serve as the convener.
“I welcome the interim Men’s National Selection Committee and have no doubt that, despite the short notice, they will make brave and bold decisions that will help us produce a strong and competitive side for the series against New Zealand,” said Mr. Najam Sethi, Chair of the PCB Management Committee.
“Shahid Afridi was an aggressive cricketer who played his whole career without hesitation. He has played cricket for almost 20 years, has appeared in all formats with notable success, and most importantly has consistently encouraged and backed up fresh talent. Therefore, in our opinion, he is the only one who can truly comprehend the rigors, demands, and difficulties of the current game.
I am still optimistic that he will aid Pakistan in choosing the finest and most worthy players and contribute to the team’s victory in the next series thanks to his perspective and expertise in the game.
