Inzamam-ul-Haq Resigns as Chief Selector Amid World Cup Turmoil

Amidst Pakistan’s rollercoaster journey in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023, Inzamam-ul-Haq, the team’s chief selector, has voluntarily stepped down from his position.

Pakistan, with a record of two wins and four losses in the initial six matches, find themselves on the fringes of the semi-final race.


In a surprising turn of events, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced Inzamam’s immediate departure, pending an internal inquiry into alleged conflicts of interest.

Inzamam, aged 53, emphasized his decision as an opportunity for a transparent investigation, stating, “I am stepping down from the post to offer the PCB the opportunity to conduct a transparent inquiry about the conflict of interest allegations raised in the media. If the committee finds me not guilty, I will resume my role as the chief selector.”
