Shahid Afridi was named interim head of the National Selection Committee by the Pakistan Cricket Board on Saturday. Afridi will lead the four-member panel, which also includes Abdul Razzaq and Rao Iftikhar Anjum, with Haroon Rashid as the convener. The appointment is only for the upcoming home series against New Zealand, starting on December 26 in Karachi.
They’re reviewing the Test squad that was announced by the previous panel, led by Mohammad Wasim.
Former Pakistani captain Shahid Afridi has been named interim chair of the Men’s National Selection Committee by the PCB Management Committee. Haroon Rashid will be the convener, along with Abdul Razzaq and Rao Iftikhar Anjum.
Afridi was appointed after Wasim’s contract was terminated by Najam Sethi’s PCB management committee. The now-defunct 2019 constitution also dismantled all committees.
Afridi says he’s honored to be given this responsibility by the PCB Management Committee and will do everything in my power to fulfill it.
We have to win back. I have no doubt that by making meritocratic and strategic selection decisions, we’ll get the national team to perform well in the series against New Zealand. This will regain the confidence of our fans. As soon as I convene a selector meeting, I’ll share my plans for the matches coming up.”
As soon as he took over on Thursday, the newly elected chairman made this choice.
In December 2020, Wasim was appointed chief selector, and it was expected that this system would continue through 2023.
He got fired over email on Friday. The New Zealand series test team was Wasim’s final selection.
During his presidency, Pakistan played 16 tests, winning eight and losing six, including two home series against Australia and England.
In the 2021 and 2022 editions of the men’s T20 World Cup, Pakistan made it to the final. During Wasim’s tenure, Pakistan played 55 T20Is, winning 34 and losing 18. Pakistan played 15 One-Day Internationals. Ten were won and five were lost.
Shahid Afridi, on the other hand, played 27 Tests, 398 ODIs, and 99 T20Is from 1996 to 2018, scoring 11,196 runs and taking 541 wickets. Also, he has captained the national team 83 times. At Lord’s in 2009, he was part of the Pakistan team that won the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.
Abdul Razzaq played 343 international matches from 1996 to 2013 and scored 7,419 runs and took 389 wickets. Also, he won the 2009 T20 World Cup at Lord’s.
From 2004 to 2010, Rao Iftikhar played a Test, 62 ODIs and two T20Is.
