Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) entrusted and handed over the responsibility of Chief Selector of Pakistan team to former cricketer Inzamam-ul-Haq on August 7.
Subsequently, there were two occasions when Inzamam threatened to resign. Despite being the squad finalized for series against Afghanistan and Asia Cup, he was not offered a contract. He expressed his intention to resign but later had meeting with PCB management committee chairman Zaka Ashraf where discussions took place. Inzamam demanded a hefty remuneration with a three-year contract, requesting a monthly amount exceeding 2 million rupees. A stamp of approval was placed on the duration of contract by the management committee.
During the recent Asia Cup in Lahore, Inzamam displayed dissatisfaction once again and had demanded complete authority to grant NOCs to players for leagues. Inzamam's agents represent several national cricketers including Babar Azam and Muhammad Rizwan.
To prevent clashes of interests, the Board was not willing to grant the Chief Selector full authority in granting NOCs. In response, he issued a resignation threat.
Due to continuous demands, the Board authorities considered appointing Misbah ul Haq or Nadeem Khan as Chief Selector but ultimately reached an agreement to convince Inzamam, averting the conflict.
Relations have been amicable since then; however, future disputes might arise due to conflicting interests and ego.
