In a major development, Pakistan Cricket Board has appointed former captain Shahid Afridi as the interim chief selector of the men’s team. Besides, other former cricketers like Abdur Razzak and Rao Iftikhar Anjum are also part of the panel, while Haroon Rashid was named the convener. The announcement comes days after PCB appointed a new chairman in Najam Sethi who replaced Ramiz Raja.

“PCB Management Committee has appointed former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi as the interim Chair of the Men’s National Selection Committee. Other members of the panel are: Abdul Razzaq and Rao Iftikhar Anjum. Haroon Rashid will be the Convener,” wrote the PCB on their official Twitter account.

Ramiz Raja was reportedly removed as the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) a day after the team suffered a historic Test series clean sweep at the hands of England at home.
