Inzamam ul Haq, the Chief Selector of the PCB, resigned from his position immediately after allegations of conflict of interest surfaced. This big resignation came during the 2023 World Cup following the Pakistan team’s below-average performance in CWC 2023.
This decision was confirmed by the cricket board. Inzamam stated, “I decided that it was better I resign” in response to questions raised about his involvement in a players’ management company registered with the PCB, where he is reportedly a director.
Notably, several prominent players, including Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam also are associated with this company. This raised concerns about the chief selector’s connection to a firm involved in player contract negotiations.
The timing of this development coincides with Pakistan’s underwhelming performance in the World Cup, ongoing criticism, and a separate controversy involving leaked private conversations between skipper Babar Azam and a top board official.
In his statement, Inzamam, who joined PCB as a Chief Selector in August, expressed his willingness to cooperate with a PCB investigation and clarified that he had no involvement with the player-agent company despite the allegations.
