    Default Pakistan name former captain Moin Khan as chief selector

    Former captain Moin Khan has been appointed as Pakistan's chief selector, replacing Iqbal Qasim, who resigned after the team's dismal performance in the Champions Trophy, the Pakistan Cricket Board said on Monday.



    The 41-year-old Moin played 69 Tests and 219 One-day internationals as a wicketkeeper-batsman for Pakistan during a 14-year career.
    "Moin met with the PCB acting chairman Najam Sethi today and discussed in detail the role of the selectors and his vision for the future," a board spokesperson said.
    Qasim had resigned from his post after Pakistan lost all three of their group matches at last month's Champions Trophy.
    Qasim cited personal and health reasons for his decision to step down but was known to be unhappy with interference from the team management in selection affairs.
    Moin, who was a member of the Pakistan squads that won the World Cup in 1992 and reached the final seven years later, said the job was a challenge.
    "I have accepted this as a challenge and I am glad that PCB and my own vision corresponds in terms of preparing a pool of talented cricketers who can mount an effective challenge in the 2015 World Cup," Moin said.
    The other selectors, former Test cricketers Saleem Jaffer, Azhar Khan and Farrukh Zaman, would continue to work under Moin, the PCB added.

    Default Moin Khan becomes youngest chief selector for Pakistan

    The Pakistan Cricket Board on Monday opted for a younger chief selector when it appointed former captain Moin Khan after the sudden resignation of Iqbal Qasim last month.

    Moin, 41, is the youngest person to be named to the chief selector's post by the board.

    The former wicketkeeper-batsman, who played 69 Tests and 219 one-day internationals, said it as a big challenge about his new assignment.

    "Being chief selector in Pakistan cricket is a tough challenge for anyone because selection is not an easy job in a country where everyone is passionate about cricket," Moin said.

    "But I have a clear vision of how to go about things and start preparing for the 2015 World Cup. I can say there is talent in Pakistan cricket," he added.

    An official of the Pakistan Cricket Board said that Moin had met the acting Chairman of the board Najam Sethi in Lahore on Monday in which he discussed details of the role of the selectors and his vision for the future.

    Qasim had resigned as chief selector after the Pakistan team lost all three of its group matches in the Champions Trophy in England in June.

    Qasim cited personal and health reasons for his decision to step down but privately it was known he was unhappy with interference from the team management in selection affairs. The board said the other members of the selection committee would continue to work under Moin until further orders. The other selectors include former test players Saleem Jaffer, Azhar Khan and Farrukh Zaman.

    Moin indicated to the media in Lahore that he had been given the task of preparing for the 2015 World Cup and would be looking to form his own team of selectors. He also made it clear that he would work with the same sincerity as chief selector as he had served the national team.

    "Some hard decisions need to be taken but we have to keep in mind that we need to have a strong squad for the coming World Cup," he said.
