LAHORE: Inzamam-ul-Haq has been appointed as the Chairman of the Junior Men’s Cricket Selection Committee, while he continues to lead the senior selection committee.
The four-member senior selection committee comprises Tauseef Ahmed, Wajahatullah Wasti and Wasim Haider. The seven-member junior selection committee includes Aamer Nazir, Javed Hayat, Mahmood Hamid, Naveed Latif, Salman Ahmed and Sanaullah Baloch.
The first assignment for the junior selection committee is to select the Pakistan U19 squad for the forthcoming series against Sri Lanka U19. Sri Lanka U19 are scheduled to arrive in Karachi on 12 October to feature in one four-day and five 50-over matches.
Previously, Inzamam-ul-Haq was appointed chief selector of the senior national men’s team for the second time in August.
His appointment came at a crucial time as his selection committee was tasked to select squads for the Asia Cup 2023, as well as the ongoing ICC World Cup 2023 in India.
Inzamam-ul-Haq took over the position previously held by Haroon Rashid, who resigned last month. The former captain previously held the position from 2016 to 2019.
During his first tenure, his selected team won the 2017 Champions Trophy under the captaincy of Sarfaraz Ahmed, while in the 2019 World Cup, they missed a spot in the semi-final due to the inferior net run rate.
Pakistan team’s director Mickey Arthur was the national head coach during Inzamam’s last tenure.
The PCB’s Cricket Technical Committee (CTC), led by Misbah-ul-Haq, suggested the former captain’s name to the PCB Management Committee chairman, Zaka Ashraf.
