As per the reports, Mohammad Hafeez is likely to replace Inzamam-ul-Haq as PCB Chief Selector

Former captain of Pakistan cricket team Mohammad Hafeez is the frontrunner to become chairman of the senior selection committee, a post vacated recently by Inzamam ul Haq after allegations of 'Conflict of Interest' surfaced. As per the source in PCB, another Test captain, Younis Khan, could also get an important designation in the national set-up. Both of the Pakistani greats, along with current players Wahab Riaz and Sohail Tanvir, met with Zaka Ashraf, the head of PCB's cricket management committee, in Lahore on Tuesday.

Also, Zaka met with Younis separately and apparently asked him to consider going with the team to Australia and New Zealand for the Test and T20 series. According to the insider, Zaka had also spoken to some other former stalwarts via video link on Tuesday who were in Karachi and busy with media commitments.

It has been learned that under-fire captain Babar Azam has been summoned to a meeting to discuss the disastrous performance of the team in the World Cup, where they finished fifth.

A Pcb insider said, "Zaka has called embattled captain Babar Azam for a meeting on Wednesday in which most probably the batsman will be given another chance to lead the team in Australia and New Zealand.”
