Former Pakistani cricketers Ijaz Ahmed and Shoaib Mohammad have reportedly been appointed along with former Test wicketkeeper Salim Yousuf, former opening batsman Wajahatullah Wasti and Mohammad Akram as the members of Pakistan cricket’s new selection committee.

 

Khan, Mohammad and Akram were coaches of the Pakistan teams that were beaten in the Asia Cup final last month, and failed to advance from the group stage at the ICC World T20 2014 in Bangladesh.

 

According to The Dawn, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said in a statement that Akram will be the head coach at the National Cricket Academy and will no longer be the bowling coach of the national team.
