Misbah Ul Haq Resigns
Today Misbah-ul-Haq announced that he is quitting his role as Pakistan’s chief selector. He will continue as head coach.
Misbah Ul Haq will continue to serve as the head coach of the men’s team.
The former skipper was under pressure over his dual responsibilities as teams head coach and chief selector, sources said.
The 46-year-old will stay in the dual role until November 30 before his successor will assume the responsibilities on December 1. This scenario implies that Misbah will be selecting Pakistan’s limited-overs squad for the upcoming home fixtures against Zimbabwe starting October 30.
