Inzamam-ul-Haq resigns as Pakistan Cricket Team’s chief selector
October 30: Amidst the team’s dismal performance in the current cricket World Cup in India, veteran Pakistani cricketer Inzamam-ul-Haq has tendered his resignation as Chief Selector for the Pakistan cricket team, Ary news reported citing sources.
Inzamam-ul-Haq is also facing scrutiny due to allegations of his shareholding in “Yazo International Limited,” a company associated with player agent Talha Rehmani. This revelation has sparked concerns about potential conflicts of interest, particularly as Rehmani represents several prominent Pakistani cricketers, including Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, and Shaheen Shah Afridi.
Additionally, questions have been raised about whether Inzamam’s dual roles as Chief Selector and shareholder in a company representing top cricketers might influence player selection decisions.
Notably, this controversy unfolds against the backdrop of significant disagreements between the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and players concerning central contracts.
