Former Pakistan batter Haroon Rashid has been appointed as Chair of the Pakistan men’s National Selection Committee, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said on Monday (23).
The other members of the committee will be announced in due course.
Haroon played 23 Tests and 12 ODIs for Pakistan and last held this position in 2015-16.
“I want to congratulate Haroon Rashid and hope he will use his cricket knowledge, understanding and background while picking squads for the upcoming international assignments.” Chair of the PCB Management Committee, Mr Najam Sethi said.
“I am honoured to have been entrusted with this responsibility and look forward to working very closely with the team management and the National High Performance Centre so that we have clear pathways and can work collectively to select best available players for what will be a busy and high-profile year of cricket, including the ACC Asia Cup, ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup and the tour of Australia for three Tests.” Haroon Rashid said.
“One of the key aspects I will like to focus on my time will be improving communication. This is a critical area as the players need to have absolute clarity on why they have been selected or not selected, which, in turn, will help them to deliver the desired results, work harder on their skills and remain motivated.”
