The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has appointed former Test cricketer Nadeem khan as the Coordinator – National Selection Committee on Thursday.
According to the PCB, this new post has been introduced to reduce the workload on the national team’s chief selector and head coach Misbah-ul-Haq.
Nadeem will be responsible to keep a strong eye on domestic cricket in the country. He will be the messenger between Misbah and coaches of all six regions which are part of domestic cricket.
He will collect feedback, players’ performance and queries at the domestic level and will present a report to Misbah on a regular basis. The PCB’s CEO, Wasim Khan, believes that this appointment will help Misbah sort out strong decisions.
“When we had unveiled Misbah-ul-Haq as chief selector and head coach, we had stated we will provide all necessary support to allow Misbah to fulfill his responsibilities and achieve his objectives and targets. Nadeem’s appointment is a testament to that statement,” he said.
Moreover, he showed believe in Nadeem’s abilities who had represented Pakistan in two Tests and two ODIs. He played 153 first-class matches in the country.
“Nadeem is one of the most respected cricketers and is admired for his overall cricket knowledge, an insight of domestic cricket and ability to speak openly, frankly and honestly,” he concluded.
