Former cricketer Inzamamul Haq was appointed as the new chief selector of the Pakistan cricket team, the national cricket board said on Monday.

This will be his second stint as the chief selector. He served in the same capacity in 2019 when Ehsan Mani was the PCB chairman.

Haq had step down from his position on July 17, 2019, after Pakistan’s dismal performance in the World Cup campaign.

The former right-handed batter and ex-skipper is Pakistan’s highest run-scorer in ODIs with 11,701 runs in 375 matches, and their third-highest in Tests with 8,829 runs in 119 matches, according to ESPNcricinfo. He was also among the national team’s most successful captains.

He retired from the international game in 2007 and has since served Pakistan in various capacities including batting consultant and chief selector from 2016 to 2019.

The national cricket board has seen some big changes with the arrival of new chairman Zaka Ashraf.

Recently, the PCB constituted a high-profile Cricket Technical Committee, consisting of former Pakistan captains Misbahul Haq, Inzamam-ul-Haq and Mohammad Hafeez.

The CTC is tasked to provide recommendations on cricket-related matters, including, but not limited to the overall domestic structure, scheduling, playing conditions, the appointment of the national selection committees, the appointment of national team coaches, central and domestic contracts and plans for the development of umpires, referees and curators.

“The CTC will have the powers to invite additional cricket experts and shall report to the head of the PCB Management Committee on a regular basis,” according to the board.
