Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ehsan Mani has revealed that big decisions, including whether to retain Sarfraz Ahmed as captain, Mickey Arthur as head coach and the national selectors, will be made in “a few weeks’ time”.
There has been a lot of speculation about whether Sarfraz, Arthur and chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq will keep hold of their jobs following Pakistan’s failure to qualify for the World Cup semi-finals.
Speculation has been rife that Sarfraz will be stripped of the captaincy or lead Pakistan in fewer formats, while the rumours about Arthur and Inzamam is that they will be sacked.
However, Mani reiterated that a decision on their futures, along with a host of other people, will be made in the near future.
“My innings as PCB chairman, in real terms, is going to start now as [some] important decisions regarding new team management, [the] national selection committee and others are set to be taken within a few weeks’ time,” Mani told Dawn.
“All the decisions will be taken while keeping in view Pakistan team’s activities during the next four years. We will go through a proper process before making any changes.”
