Late last month, Inzamam-ul-Haq stepped down as Chief Selector of the Pakistan Cricket Team.
The development came after media reports circulated, claiming that the former cricketer was one of the stakeholders in a player’s management firm, named Saya Corps, in respect to the “conflict of interest”.
Meanwhile, the PCB, minutes after Inzamam’s resignation, took to X, formerly Twitter, to share that it had formed a five-member fact-finding committee to “investigate allegations in respect of conflict of interest”.
“Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has set up a five-member fact-finding committee to investigate allegations in respect of conflict of interest reported in the media pertaining to the team selection process,” PCB stated.
“The committee will submit its report and any recommendations to the PCB Management in an expeditious manner.”
