KARACHI: Ex Pakistan cricket captain Inzamam-ul-Haq is fixed to be chosen as the state’s chief selector after he was unconfined from his part as Afghanistan’s head coach.
The 46-year-old Inzamam directed Afghanistan to the Super 10 phase of the passed World Twenty20 in India, throughout which they conquered the ultimate winners West Indies. Inzamam had a bond with the Afghan board (ACB) up until the finish of the year.
ACB Chief Shafiq Stanikzai stated that he had gotten an appeal from his Pakistan Cricket Board corresponding person Shaharyar Khan to issue the previous batting great from his agreement.
Today Shaharyar Khan called me and asked a favour to release Inzamam-ul-Haq as they are keen to hire him. Although he was in contract with us until December this year, we are patriotic people and if Pakistan needs Inzamam for their own country, we are ready to release him. We are looking at the contract right now with all the terms and conditions but we are not going to drag this and rather finish this on good and high note Stanikzai expressed to journalists.
Pakistan left the World Twenty20 after trailing three of their four games in the Super 10 stage stimulating head coach Waqar Younis to quit.
Regarding the performance of the Afghanistan team in WT20, Inzamam said
Afghanistan haven’t had that exposure of winning against big teams. The finishing point has not been seen yet. But now that we have won this, it will definitely help. And we had a strong belief that if we can come so close, we can win too. Today it has happened. We could have won against England, there was a close game against Sri Lanka too. So we knew we had the potential to win, but you still need that win. The more we play against big teams, the more we’ll learn, and can perform even better.
Inzamam played 378 one-day internationals and 120 tests for Pakistan and also helped as the team’s batting advisor for a short-lived period in 2012.
