Misbah-ul-Haq resigns as chief selector
Lahore: Head coach Misbah-ul-Haq has resigned from his position as Pakistan’s chief selector.

According to details, Misbah-ul-Haq has decided to step down from the chief selector’s responsibilities to concentrate and focus on the head coach’s role of the men’s national team.

The new chief selector will begin his tenure from December 01 and until then, Misbah will continue to carry out selection responsibilities.

Misbah communicated his decision to Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chief Executive Wasim Khan in Islamabad last week during the National T20 Cup.

While addressing a presser, Misbah-ul-Haq said that he wants to dedicate his time, energy and attention to one role from now onwards.

 “I have thoroughly enjoyed the dual roles but after reviewing the past 12 months and looking ahead at the workload in the next 24 months of my tenure, it is appropriate that I invest and dedicate all my time, energy and attention to one role from now on,” he said.

He further stated that coaching is his passion and his ultimate objective remains to contribute to the development of players and help the side achieve bigger successes.

“When I was appointed last year, I was offered the coaching role first and then given the option to also head the selection committee, which I had graciously accepted. I am grateful to the Pakistan Cricket Board for their understanding and for supporting my thought process,” he said.
