The other members of the selection panel have not been named yet.
“The [PCB’s] decision to involve former players in cricketing matters is commendable and I am willing to work for the betterment of Pakistan cricket,” Wahab said in a board statement. “Heading a selection committee is a challenging task. We have a significant Australia tour coming up that is part of the ICC World Test Championship 2023-25 cycle and a T20I series against New Zealand that will allow us to develop a formidable unit leading up to the ICC T20 World Cup in the USA and West Indies in June next year.
“I have a good rapport with the Pakistan Men’s Team Director Mohammad Hafeez and we will be working closely for the success of Pakistan cricket. My primary goal would be to give weightage to the top performers in domestic cricket and announce well-rounded squads equipped with the necessary skillsets. I will always be available to the players for feedback and advice.”
Reports in sections of the Pakistan media said that Inzamam was an active director in a UK-based company, Yazoo International Ltd, of which a gentleman called Talha Rehmani was also a director; Rehmani is also managing director of a company called Saya Corporation, which represents many prominent Pakistani cricketers, including Babar Azam, Shaheen Shah Afridi and Mohammad Rizwan. According to gov.uk, a UK government public sector information website, Rizwan is also a director at Yazoo alongside Inzamam. The company secretary is Intisar-ul-Haq, Inzamam’s brother.
Inzamam became a director in the company in question on December 7, 2020, and when he was announced as Pakistan’s chief selector earlier this year, his involvement with the company was not made public.
The ICC’s future tours programme doesn’t have an ODI listed for Pakistan for a year – their next fixtures in the format are in a series of three games scheduled in Australia in November 2024.
