KARACHI: It appears as if the clouds of uncertainty that have been looming over Misbah ul Haq’s future as chief selector for the past few days are finally fading away. Misbah will stay as chief selector of Pakistan men’s national team, Dawn has learnt.

According to a reliable source in the PCB, the reports of replacing Misbah as chief selector are absolutely ‘baseless’.

“We have neither discussed it, nor it is in our plans. It’s a completely baseless story,” a well informed source told Dawn.

It was first reported by the Press Trust of India (PTI) on Aug 22 that Misbah might be asked to step down as chief selector in order to focus on his job as head coach.

After which, the story was picked up by the local and international media. Social media and local media have been abuzz with rumours that a former “fiery, outspoken fast bowler” might replace Misbah as the chief selector.

This latest development, however, has put all such rumours to rest.

I wrote on this forum many times that Misbah is here to stay in all capacities as long as IK is PM. Both are Niazis from Mianwali. Buzdar is here to stay as CM as long as Bushra Bibi is First Lady.

If PCB has no plans to take away the chief selector post away from him, then make some for crying out loud?....Can't you see Misbah can't handle both the jobs at the same time.
Let him concentrate on being the head coach.

اس کو حنوط کروا کر کرکٹ بورڈ میں رکھ لو۔
ایک دم پھدو بھرے ہوئے ہیں کرکٹ بورڈ میں
جتنے پیسے ان نالائق کوچوں کی فوج پر خرچ کئے جا رہے ہیں۔ اس سے کم ازکم تین چار بہترین کرکٹ گراؤنڈ ہر شہر میں بن سکتے ہیں ۔اور ایک بات میں وثوق سے کہہ سکتا ہوں ان کوچوں کے بغیر ٹیم اس سے بہتر کارگرگی دکھا سکتی ہے۔تو اتنی بری کارکردگی کیلئے ان پر پیسا کیوں برباد کیا جا رہا ہے

What a bold step by PCB. I hope one day Misbah will learn coaching and selection and then it will be time to sack him not now when he is new to field of selection and coaching?
