The Pakistan Cricket Board has appointed former captain Moin Khan as chief selector. He replaces Iqbal Qasim who has resigned recently. With the appointment, all members of the selection committee have been reinstated, including Azhar Khan, Saleem Jaffar, Asif Baloch and Farrukh Zaman.

Moin Khan has been appointed by PCB acting chairman Najm Sethi, although he doesn’t have the right to do so under the board’s constitution and a recent decision by a court.

According to a recent ruling by the Sindh High Court, Sethi is supposed to hold board elections in 90 days and he cannot take important decisions but to call meetings. But now he has appointed a chief selector.

Moin looks happy with the decision, and so do most players of Karachi. But an appointment by PCB’s acting chairman does not augur well for Moin’s future. However, his appointment has been generally welcomed by experts and fans, because of his attachment to Pakistan cricket and his knowledge of contemporary techniques used in the sport, which will definitely help cricket prosper in the country.

Moin played 69 Tests and 219 ODIs for Pakistan, including 13 Tests he captained.
