Misbah-Ul-Haq Set To Step Down As Pakistan’s Chief Selector, To Remain As Head Coach


Misbah-ul-Haq has decided to step down as Pakistan chief selector to focus more on his head coach role with the national cricket team. Misbah told in a media briefing in Lahore on Wednesday that he has informed the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) that he would be stepping down as chief selector on November 30. He had taken the dual role of chief selector and head coach in September last year. “I will select the squad for the coming series against Zimbabwe but after that I just want to focus on my work as head coach,” he said.
Misbah insisted that he had not quit as chief selector because of pressure from the board or any quarter.
“No it is purely my own personal decision and I took it because I think it is not easy doing two high profile jobs at one time. I want to give my best as head coach of the national team.
“Whoever is appointed as chief selector, I will fully cooperate with him and work to take the Pakistan team into the top three of every format,” Misbah said.
