Inzamam-ul-Haq resigns from Pakistan’s chief selector post amid Babar Azam’s Whatsapp chats leak


Former Pakistan Inzamam-ul-Haq, who took up the crucial position of chief selector in August this year, has resigned from his post.

Reasons for Inzamam-ul-Haq leaving the chief selector post

As per the reports in Pakistan media, Inzamam cited the team’s underwhelming display in the ongoing ICC Men’s ODI World Cup and the leaking of captain Babar Azam’s private Whatsapp chat as two of the primary reasons for his decision to step down.

Inzamam’s resignation will definitely raise questions about the direction and strategy of the Pakistan cricket team, with concerns being about the team’s ability to compete effectively at the international level.

During his tenures as chief selector in 2016, 2019 and 2023, Inzamam played a pivotal role in identifying and nurturing young talent and bringing fresh faces into the national squad. However, Pakistan’s recent performances have left fans and cricket enthusiasts disappointed, leading to speculation about potential changes in the team’s leadership and the coaching staff.
