The former captain raised questions on the decisions of the PCB chairman

New Delhi. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has appointed Haroon Rasheed as the new chief selector of the national team. PCB chairman Najam Sethi announced his appointment on Monday. He showed strong attitude towards former interim chief selector Shahid Afridi. Sethi said, it is my job to decide who will be the captain, vice-captain, coach and selector of the Pakistan team. No one can interfere in this.

In a press conference held on Monday at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, the PCB chairman said, “It is my responsibility to decide who will remain on important positions.” The selector, coach and captain will decide which player will enter the field. Everyone’s responsibilities are fixed. I made Shan Masood the vice-captain of the ODI team after some thought. It is a different matter that he was not given a place in the playing XI. Najam Sethi targeted Afridi and called him a weak chief selector. He said, everyone should do their work in a better way. If someone is not able to do this, then it means that he is a weak person.

Why did the relationship between Afridi and Sethi deteriorate?

Shahid Afridi was in the favorite list of PCB chairman Najam Sethi. It was believed that Afridi could remain the chief selector till the ODI World Cup. But in the last few days their relationship turned sour. Afridi publicly questioned Najam Sethi’s decisions. On making Shan Masood the vice-captain of the team in the ODI series against New Zealand, he said, this decision was wrong. Me and Captain Babar Azam were kept completely in the dark about this matter. Apart from this, Afridi wanted to make a former player of Pakistan the head coach of the team, while Sethi is completely against it.
