The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Monday appointed former Test cricketer Haroon Rasheed as the national men’s team chief selector.

Haroon, who represented Pakistan in 23 Tests and 12 ODIs, was a member of the Shahid Afridi-led interim selection committee appointed only for the home New Zealand ODI series.

In a press conference in Lahore on Monday, PCB Management Committee Chairman Najam Sethi said: “Following speculations, I finally confirm the appointment of Haroon Rasheed as the new chief selector.”

“Haroon will get time to make his team and work for the betterment of Pakistan,” the top official of the board said.

PCB reportedly wanted Afridi to continue as the chief selector; however, the former all-rounder reportedly refused a permanent role citing personal commitments.

While looking forward, Sethi thinks Haroon is the right man for this job. “I have worked with him. He is a competent individual, and I have given him a free hand to make his team and take decisions,” shared the management committee’s chairman.

Haroon previously served as the national men’s team chief selector from 2015 to 2016 and manager of the national team from 2003 to 2005.
