PCB Appoints Shahid Afridi As Chief Selector
“I welcome the interim Men’s National Selection Committee and have no doubts that, despite the short notice, they will make brave and bold decisions that will enable us develop a strong and competitive team in the series against New Zealand,” said Najam Sethi, chairman of the PCB who is recently replaced by Ramiz Raja.
“Shahid Afridi was an aggressive cricketer who played his entire career without hesitation. He has played cricket for almost 20 years, has appeared in all formats with notable success, and—most importantly—has consistently encouraged and backed up fresh talent. Therefore, in our opinion, he is the only one who can truly comprehend the rigours, demands, and difficulties of the modern game.
I am still optimistic that he will aid Pakistan in choosing the best and most worthy players and contribute to the team’s victory in the next series thanks to his perspective and expertise of the game.
Shahid Afridi: “I feel honored to have been assigned this responsibility by the PCB Management Committee and will no stone unturned in fulfilling this responsibility to the best of my abilities.
We need to resume our winning ways, and I am confident that by making merit-based and well-considered selections, we will assist the national team in giving a solid performance in the series against New Zealand and win back the support of our supporters.
He further added that I’ll shortly call a meeting of the selectors and discuss my ideas for the next games.
