PCB constitutes 7-member selection committee sans a chairman

The same selection committee will work for the Under 19 cricket, the PCB Chairman announced.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced a 7-member selection committee sans a chairman.

The selection committee comprise cricketers Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Yusuf, Abdul Razzaq and Asad Shafiq, the team’s captain, head coach and data analyst.

PCB Chairman Mohsin Naqvi on Sunday announced the formation of a seven-member selection committee to pick the national cricket team ahead of the T20 World Cup to be held in the US and the West Indies.

Addressing a press conference at the PCB headquarters, he said there would be no chairman of the selection committee.

“There will be no chairman. All committee members will take unanimous decisions,” Naqvi said.

He added that there will be two to three coordinators but they will not have voting powers.

“This committee will decide every single decision from now on. They are our key players in the management who will make decisions and I am sure that they will give good results,” said the PCB chairman.

Mohsin Naqvi vowed that there would be no favouritism in team selection.

Regarding the selection of a captain, the PCB Chief said the decision would be taken to retain Shaheen Afridi instead of appointing a new captain after discussions.

He said that a panel of coaches is being formed that would include Pakistani and foreign coaches.

The board was negotiating with a foreign coach who stepped aside when the media highlighted him, he added.

The same selection committee will work for the Under 19 cricket, the PCB Chairman announced.
