Rashid played 23 Tests and 12 ODIs for Pakistan between 1977 and 1983 and served as the PCB’s Director of Cricket Operations and Pakistan team manager, in addition to his previous role as a selector. On December 22 last year, Rashid was appointed in the 14-member Cricket Management Committee to run the PCB, but will now step down from the post.
“Haroon has now resigned from the management committee as we do not want any conflict of interest as he is now the chief selector,” Sethi said.
The Cricket Management Committee had appointed Afridi as the interim chief selector on December 24 and Sethi wanted him to hold the responsibilities for a longer period. However, Afridi was not keen, citing his busy schedule and commitment to his foundation and charitable work.
The next series for the Pakistan men’s team is a three-match T20I competition against Afghanistan in March.
