Inzamam-ul-Haq is set to stand down as Pakistan’s chairman of the men’s selection committee.
The former Pakistan captain is not seeking an extension to his contract, which expires at the end of this month, having held the position for a little over three years.
During that time, Pakistan won the 2017 Champions Trophy but failed to reach the knockout stages of the World Cup, missing out to New Zealand by virtue of an inferior net run-rate after the teams finished level on points.
Inzamam has now decided to stand aside, although it was reported last week that the Pakistan cricket Board was seeking a new appointment.
Inzamam said in a statement: “After more than three years as chair of the Pakistan men’s selection committee, I have decided not to seek a renewal of my contract.
“With the ICC World Test Championship, due to get underway in September, the ICC T20 World Cup in 2020 and the ICC Men’s cricket World Cup 2023, I believe it is the right time for the Pakistan cricket Board to appoint a new chief selector who can bring new ideas and fresh thinking.”
