Inzamam Criticizes Former PCB Head Zaka for Pakistan's Disappointing World Cup Performance:

News by “Sana Ullah”

The dismal performance of the Pakistan national cricket team in the 2023 World Cup has prompted former Chief Selector Inzamam-ul-Haq to openly blame former PCB Chairman Zaka Ashraf for the team’s lackluster showing.

Securing the fifth position on the points table with four victories and five defeats in nine matches, Pakistan’s failure to reach the semi-finals dealt a significant blow to the cricket-crazy nation.

Inzamam, who resigned from his role as chief selector on October 30, 2023, expressed his discontent with Ashraf’s statements made during the World Cup.

The controversy ignited when Ashraf, during his visit to India, asserted that the board had no sway over team selection. Instead, he pointed fingers at the captain and chief selector, alleging a negative mindset among the players.

In a forthright interview with a local private TV channel on Wednesday, Inzamam, visibly displeased by these remarks, voiced his concerns, stating that such comments from the PCB chairman added further strain to an already challenging situation.

Inzamam’s tenure as chief selector concluded due to conflicts of interest related to his shareholding in Talha Rahmani’s company.

The company, where Inzamam, along with prominent players such as Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, and Shadab Khan, served as agents, raised questions about impartiality in the team selection process.

To address these concerns, the PCB established a five-member Fact-Finding Committee tasked with investigating the allegations that had surfaced in the media.

Inzamam, seeking transparency and justice, expressed patience while awaiting the committee’s report. The findings are expected to illuminate the alleged conflicts of interest and provide clarity on the circumstances leading to Inzamam’s resignation.
