PCB appoints Rashid Latif as new chief selector
Lahore:The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has appointed former captain Rashid Latif as the new chief selector and the former wicketkeeper-batsman is expected to take charge from April 1.
Latif met the PCB Chairman Najam Sethi on Wednesday and was offered the post of chief selector, as well as director additional training and education for anti-corruption.
Latif confirmed to PTI that he had been offered the chief selector`s position and he had accepted it.
"I want to work for Pakistan cricket and the PCB chief listened to what I had to say after which I was offered these positions which I have accepted," Latif, who played 37 Tests and 168 One-day Internationals, said.
The PCB managing committee is due to meet tomorrow to take a number of important decisions and the board source said that Latif`s appointment will be ratified by the committee before it is announced.
