Inzamam ul Haq quits as cricket team’s chief selector

Lahore (Staff Report/Agencies): Inzamam ul Haq has announced to resign from the post of the chief selector for Pakistan cricket team.

"I think it is time to step down, I will complete my term that ends on July 30," Inzamam ul Haq said while addressing a press conference here on Wednesday.

“Cricket is my passion but I do not want to be part of the selection process,” he said and added, “I am a cricketer, this is my bread and butter. If the board offers me another role, apart from selection, I would consider it.”

Responding to a question regarding the selection of the team, he said that it was done with the consensus of the coach and captain. "The 11 [players] who play in the team are decided by the captain and coach; they can take my advise but the decision is theirs."

"Shoaib Malik has played for us for a long time; it happens sometimes that the player selected does not perform — it does not mean the selection was wrong or the player is bad.
