Misbah steps down as Pakistan chief selector, to remain head coach

Misbah-ul-Haq on Wednesday said he will be stepping down as Pakistan’s chief selector next month to focus on his role as head coach of the national cricket team.Misbah told a media briefing in Lahore that he has informed the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) that he would be stepping down as chief selector on November 30. He took up the dual role of chief selector and head coach in September last year.

“I will select the squad for the coming series against Zimbabwe but after that I just want to focus on my work as head coach,” he said.Misbah insisted that he had not quit as chief selector because of pressure from the board.“No, it is purely my own personal decision and I took it because I think it is not easy doing two high profile jobs at one time. I want to give my best as head coach of the national team.
