The former Pakistan cricket captain has resigned from his position as the chief selector of the national men’s selection committee. The announcement came on October 30, 2023, following a series of defeats for the Babar Azam-led squad in the ongoing World Cup 2023 in India.
Haq submitted his resignation to the PCB Chairman Zaka Ashraf. His decision to step down comes amidst allegations of a potential conflict of interest. He was accused of having shares in Yazo International Limited, a company owned by agent Talha Rahmani. Haq has vehemently denied these allegations and has no links with any players’ agent company.
In response to the allegations, Haq urged the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to conduct an inquiry into the matter. He expressed his readiness to cooperate fully with the investigation and called on those making the allegations to provide evidence.
In the wake of these events, the PCB has established a five-member fact-finding committee to investigate the allegations related to the team selection process. The committee is expected to submit its report and any recommendations to the PCB Management promptly.
The resignation of Inzamamul Haq marks a significant moment in Pakistan cricket, given his influential role in shaping the national team. His departure also raises questions about the future direction of the team, particularly in light of their recent performance in the World Cup.
