Mohammad Hafeez Steps Down From PCB Technical Committee, Check Full Report

In an unexpected turn of events, former Pakistan cricketer and captain Mohammad Hafeez has announced his immediate resignation from the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) technical committee. This decision comes on the eve of the official World Cup 2023 squad announcement and has left many surprised and speculating about its reasons.

Hafeez, who held an honorary position on the technical committee, played a crucial role in advising on various domestic and national cricket matters. His responsibilities included:

  • Recommendations on issues within the cricketing circuit.
  • The appointment of selection committees and coaches.

The news of Hafeez’s resignation has shocked cricket enthusiasts and raised questions about his relationship with Pakistan’s skipper, Babar Azam, and PCB chairman, Zaka Ashraf. While the exact reasons for his departure remain undisclosed, it’s clear that something may have transpired within the management that led to this decision.

Hafeez took to his Twitter account to confirm his departure and express his gratitude to Chairman Ashraf for the opportunity. He also mentioned his willingness to offer his honest suggestions for Pakistan cricket in the future.

“I decided to leave Pakistan cricket technical committee. I served as an honorary member. I would like to thank Zaka Ashraf sb for giving me this opportunity. I’m always available whenever Zaka Ashraf sb needs my honest suggestions for Pakistan cricket. My best wishes for Pakistan cricket as always. Pakistan Zindabad.”

Hafeez’s tenure on the committee was notably brief, lasting less than two months. His departure right before the World Cup squad announcement adds an element of intrigue to the situation, leaving cricket fans curious about the possible implications for the team’s composition.

The PCB Technical Committee, chaired by former cricketer Misbah-ul-Haq, also includes Inzamam-ul-Haq as a member, who was later appointed as the chief selector. The committee is pivotal in shaping Pakistan cricket’s future and decisions.

Following a review meeting for the Asia Cup 2023, the timing of Hafeez’s exit suggests that disagreements or concerns may have arisen during this period. The meeting involved key figures in Pakistani cricket, including Director of Cricket Mickey Arthur, head coach Grant Bradburn, batting coach Andrew Puttick, bowling coach Morne Morkel, captain Babar Azam, and vice-captain Shadab Khan, who discussed the team’s performance.

As the PCB proceeds with the announcement of the World Cup squad, cricket enthusiasts await to see if this unexpected development will lead to any surprises or alterations in the team composition or if the current lineup from the Asia Cup will be retained for the marquee event.
