LAHORE: Chief selector for the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Iqbal Qasim resigned from his post on Thursday, Express News reported.
Qasim resigned after his work tenure ended, saying he doesn’t want to continue working as the head selector.
The former chief selector had recently announced the national squad for the West Indies tour on July 3.
Soon after the resignation, the PCB dissolved the selection committee.
On March 1, 2012, Qasim was appointed as chief selector after former chief selector Mohammad Illyas resigned from the post.
The appointment was made by the then PCB chairman Zaka Ashraf.
Recently, the PCB team management and selection committee were severely criticised for team's performance at the ICC Champions Trophy in the UK.
Calls for the resignation were accompanied by demands to overhaul the squad.
Despite the poor show, selectors said there were hardly any flaws in team selection.
Correction: In an earlier version of the article, the date "July 3" was mistakenly written as "June 3". The error is regretted.
