- Pakistan’s head coach Misbah-ul-Haq resigned as chief selector
- Mohammad Akram is one of the main contenders for the post of Chief Selector, but he will not accept this post.
Former Pakistan team wicketkeeper batsman Rashid Latif has said that after the head coach Misbah-ul-Haq resigned as the chief selector of the men’s team, a former female cricketer should be appointed to the post. He said that Pakistan Cricket Board is doing a better job by promoting women in commentary. In such a situation, by appointing former women cricketers to the management post, he can further his work. Latif suggested that Uroz Mumtaz should be appointed as the Chief Selector of the Men’s Selection Committee. There is no harm in this and many problems will be overcome.
Uros Mumtaz, Sana Mir and Bismah Maruf fit for the post of Chief Selector
Latif said that apart from Uroz Mumtaz, Sana Mir and Bismah Maruf would also be suitable for the post. They can see both male and female teams simultaneously. Latif also raised questions about the PCB’s constitution for not allowing women to rise to the top position easily. He said “It definitely has to be. Everyone thinks that only the former male cricketer should be appointed to this post. Why should this happen? Why is there a chairman in your constitution, why not a chairperson? This is because women can easily capture it. The Constitution should focus on this.
Akram will not accept Chief Selector’s proposal
He said that Mohammad Akram is one of the main contenders for the post of chief selector. But he will not accept this position. ” I think Akram will not be appointed to this post. He is very close to me. But I have not spoken to him on this subject. “
