Pakistan name new selection chief
Pakistan cricket
Pakistan have appointed former Test spinner Salahuddin Ahmad as chief selector in a new-look regime.

The 60-year-old, who played five Tests between 1965-1969, will take up a salaried position on a two-year deal.

Each final XI will be selected by a panel comprising a team manager, coach, captain and vice-captain.

Two other former Test players, Shafqat Rana and Saleem Jaffar, join Ahmad as selectors and must first search for a successor to Inzamam-ul-Haq as skipper.

The position of captain is a contentious one, with Inzamam's former deputy Younis Khan having already ruled himself out of the picture.

Inzamam has retired from limited overs matches but wishes to continue as a batsman only in the Test arena.
