Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Tuesday appointed former cricketer Tauseef Ahmed as the interim chief selector for the national team as the post was lying vacant after Inzamam ul Haq's resignation last month.

The PCB said that the first assignment for the selection committee under Ahmed will be the selection of the national squad for the upcoming Australia tour for the three-match Test series after the World Cup 2023.

Moreover, ex-cricketer Wajahatullah Wasti has been appointed as the head of the junior selection committee, the cricket governing body said. Both the new appointees are members of the existing selection committee.

On October 30, Inzamam stepped down from the post of chief selector amid the World Cup 2023 after allegations surfaced that he was a partner in a company that manages players.

Today, PCB's Media and Communications head Aalia Rasheed said that Inzamam had the responsibility to inform the cricket body about any potential conflict of interest.

The media head also clarified that wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan — who is also a director at the UK-based company — is not part of the investigation against Inzamam in the conflict of interest case.

“Initially, we thought that the committee would submit its findings soon but that is no longer the case since the legal, audit and finance departments are also involved so it will take some time because we come to a decision,” she said.
