The PCB has been looking to appoint a new Chief Selector ever since Misbah-ul-Haq announced his decision to resign from the post.

The Pakistani team for the current tour of New Zealand was his last task as Chief Selector.

The PCB had previously considered Rashid Latif but he had been unable to commit to it due to his contractual obligations with the PTV Network. However, Latif’s contract with PTV has been terminated as a cost-cutting measure, and he is back in the running for the vacancy at the PCB.

Although Akhtar is a favorite to replace Misbah, sources revealed that earlier talks could not come to fruition. However, according to the latest reports, he is currently discussing the matter with the PCB.

    RASHID LATIF HE HOGA, LEKING
    PUNJAB CRICKET BOARD NAHI DEGA LATIF KO YE JOB

  • Rashid Latif is the best for the job of cheif selector, he is a legends and know the game very well.

  • Shoaib akhter should be in that post because we need aggressive behaviour chief selector and strict and Shoaib akhter is the one we want

  • Shoab is better choice ,he is blessed with all the qualities a chief selector should have.

  • We chose Pakistan over punjab sindh baluchistan kpk and India. Statements like punjab cricket board reveal our inherent biases and also the reasons for these biases. Unfortunately there ia often some basis for these as people tend to favour their ethnic or social groups and religious sects. This is entirely unislamic since islam teaches us to shun anything but merit. There should be no angles in selection.
