Caretaker Chief Minister of Punjab, Mohsin Naqvi, has given clearance to Sports Minister and former fast bowler Wahab Riaz to assume the post of Chief Selector of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

According to sources, Wahab Riaz will remain a part of the caretaker cabinet even after assuming the post of chief selector. PCB will soon issue a contract to appoint Wahab Riaz the Chief Selector.

Former national cricketer Muhammad Hafeez has already been appointed as the Director of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). On the other hand, Naveed Akram Cheema, is likely to be made the manager of the Pakistan team.


Naveed Akram Cheema has been the manager of the team in the past as well. Meanwhile, Muhammad Hafeez has started contacting domestic cricketers for coaching staff.

The counseling process for the selection committee members is also going on.
