Misbah-ul-Haq quits as Pakistan chief selector, will continue as head coach
Misbah-ul-Haq has decided to step down as Pakistan's chief selector but will continue to serve as the head coach of the national side after being appointed in the dual role last year following the ICC World Cup 2019.
Misbah's resignation from the chief selector designation comes in the aftermath of a meeting with the five-member PCB Cricket Committee, which submitted its recommendations to chairman Ehsan Mani.
The 46-year-old will stay in the dual role until November 30 before his successor will assume the responsibilities on December 1. This scenario implies that Misbah will be selecting Pakistan's limited-overs squad for the upcoming home fixtures against Zimbabwe starting October 30 and the Test and T20I trip to New Zealand in December.
The former Pakistan skipper's tenure in this capacity was marred by a loss of form in T20Is, where his team slipped down to No. 4 from ruling the roster for 27 months.
The team also endured a humiliating series whitewash in Australia and were defeated by England 1-0 in their first international series following the coronavirus outbreak.
