    The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is, reportedly, unsatisfied with the performance of Chief Selector Inzamamul Haq and his position could be in danger if Men in Green fail to live up to expectations, during the upcoming International Cricket Council (ICC) 2019 World Cup in England and Wales.

    According to Daily Express, Inzamam, who was appointed as chief selector in 2016, has only been able to achieve a mixed set of results during his tenure, which is a concerning factor for the PCB officials, although he deserves credit for selecting Pakistan’s triumphant ICC Champions Trophy squad in 2017.

    The former Pakistan captain has also been accused of nepotism and ignoring players who deserved a chance to don national colours.

    Inzamam also came under fire for his decision to rest core of Pakistan’s side for the recently concluded one-day international (ODI) series against Australia in United Arab Emirates — which Pakistan lost five-nil. Reports have also emerged about him ignoring captain Sarfaraz Ahmed’s advice in selection matters.

    Selecting Pakistan’s World Cup squad will be Inzamam’s final task as part of his current contract with the PCB. If Pakistan fails to do well at the at the mega event, it could signal the end to his tenure as chief selector of national side.

    Managing Director PCB Wasim Khan has also discreetly indicated that Inzamam’s contract extension will be linked to Pakistan’s performance at the World Cup. It must be noted that the former right-handed batsman is paid a hefty amount of PKR 1.2 million every month.

    Sources also stated that former Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Moin Khan is one of the top contenders for the chief selector spot, as one of the top PCB official is keen to see him in that role. Khan has previously worked as manager, head coach as well as chief selector of Pakistan side.

    The decision to extend contracts of current coaches, including Head Coach Mickey Arthur, will also be taken after the World Cup, which is in accordance with statement given by PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani, a little while back.

    Would be an interesting day, if ever, when “PCB” is dissatisfied by its own performance.

    A bunch of clowns.

    Inzamam has picked new talent again and again, more than anyone else, from Hasan Ali to Fakhar to Imad to Shadab to Shaheen Afridi and on and on ... Can't blame the selector if the country's cricketing structure is terrible and the coaching and on field execution is lacking. Time for PCB to do some self reflection instead of looking for a scape goat.

    I think the credit goes more to the PSL than it does to Inzamam. Are there any non PSL playing domestic players that Inzamam has brought to the fore?

    Hasan, Fakhar, Shadab and Shaheen are all PSL performers. Imad debuted in 2015 and I think Inzi was appointed Chief Selector in 2016.

    I haven't really seen anything from Inzi that shows he goes to domestic fixtures to look at players rather than just picking PSL stars which anyone could identify.

    Do some research mate.

    A team tour 2018 season go check the squads. Inzi has given fair chance but you can only have 15 players in the national squad. As for Hassan Ali his performance in PSL 1 wasn't enough so Inzi brought him into A team and then Pakistan squad, Fauji Zaman played in Zimbabwe A series October 2016 long before PSL two same was done for Shadab. Shaheen was U-19 product.

    Go check squads for 2016 A team tour to England, 2016, Pakistan A team tour to Zimbabwe 2016, Emerging Asia Cup tour April 2017, 2018 A Team tour against Lions, Nz A and Aussie 11, Emerging Asia Cup 2018, now tell me who hasn't he selected??? It's not his fault the talent is not their. Rauf, Musa, Umer Khan, Ahsan Ali, Siddiq were in squads for Pakistan cup just recently, imo these players were not quite at intl standard however they were given a chance it was up to them to perform. Look at India they have Navdeep Saini, Siraj, Avesh Khan, Nagarkoti, Mavi, Pradish, Varun Aaron, Porel all are express 147-150, how many made the Indian team? Consider yourself lucky that we have a top chief selector.

    As of yet I would like to see Fawad and Usman Salahuddin in the Test team but then it's up to Usman to perform for the A team and in FC. The times have changed, You perform and definitely you will get a chance, you mess up then you've messed up. Arrogant people say oh g you wasted Abid, lol he only started to play well after April 2017 before that he was your average FC cricketer with stats of 34 in FC and 31, sr of 75 in List A also Inzi was the one who brought him in the A team where he performed.

    Were Saad Ali, Usman Salahuddin, Mir Hamza, Abbas, Bilal Asif, Asghar, Sami Aslam, Faheem Ashraf also brought on PSL performance? Regardless of performance these were players Pakistan fans raved and vouched for and Inzi selected them now they are vouching for other parchis and trust me Inzi will select them as well but don't cry for someone else when they fail.
