Mohammad Hafeez in line to become Pakistan’s new chief selector
Former Pakistan captain Mohammad Hafeez is reportedly in line to become the country’s new chief selector. The post has been vacant since the previous Cricket Management Committee (CMC) was dissolved in June 2023.
Hafeez is the preferred candidate of newly-appointed PCB chief Zaka Ashraf. The 41-year-old all-rounder has expressed his desire to take on the role and is expected to be appointed after the conclusion of Pakistan’s ongoing tour of Sri Lanka.
Hafeez has a wealth of experience in the game, having played 55 Tests, 218 ODIs, and 119 T20Is for Pakistan. He was also captain of the national team for a brief period in 2015.
If appointed, Hafeez will be tasked with rebuilding Pakistan’s national team, which has been struggling in recent years. The team is currently ranked seventh in Test cricket and eighth in ODI cricket.
Hafeez will face a tough challenge in turning things around, but he has the experience and knowledge to do so. He is also a respected figure in Pakistan cricket, which will be an asset in his new role.
Other candidates for the role
In addition to Hafeez, other candidates who have been mentioned for the role of chief selector include Rashid Latif, Mohsin Khan, and Saleem Yousuf. However, Hafeez is seen as the frontrunner for the job.
