Inzamam ul Haq, the Chief Selector for the Pakistan national cricket team, has tendered his resignation amid allegations of a conflict of interest.

The resignation comes in the wake of revelations that he holds shares in a company owned by players’ agent Talha Rehmani, raising concerns regarding the transparency and integrity of the team selection process.

Zaka Ashraf, the Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Management Committee, expressed his astonishment at Inzamam’s decision, stating that the Chief Selector had resigned without prior discussion. Ashraf further revealed that he had contacted Inzamam seeking clarification on the ongoing controversy but received Inzamam’s resignation instead.

The allegations against Inzamam stemmed from the discovery of his shares in a company linked to Talha Rehmani, who represents several of Pakistan’s top cricketers, including stars like Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, and Shaheen Shah Afridi. This revelation raised concerns about the potential for conflicts of interest that could impact player selection decisions.

Inzamam, who took on the role of Chairman of the national men’s committee in August and was recently appointed as Chairman of the junior men’s selection committee, addressed the situation by voluntarily stepping down. He emphasized his desire to allow the PCB to conduct a transparent inquiry into the conflict of interest allegations. Inzamam asserted that if the committee investigating the matter finds him not guilty, he would be willing to resume his role as Chief Selector.

The PCB, in response to Inzamam’s resignation, expressed its appreciation for his decision to step aside during the ongoing investigation. To ensure a thorough and unbiased inquiry, the PCB has formed a five-member fact-finding committee. The primary objective of this committee is to investigate the claims related to a potential conflict of interest and its impact on the team selection process.

The fact-finding committee is expected to work expeditiously and submit its report and any recommendations to the PCB Management, shedding light on the integrity of Pakistan’s cricket team selection procedures. The cricketing community and fans alike will be eagerly awaiting the committee’s findings, which will have far-reaching implications for the future of Pakistani cricket.

As the inquiry unfolds, the PCB and the cricketing world will closely watch the outcome of this investigation, which could potentially reshape the governance and decision-making processes within Pakistan’s cricketing ecosystem.
