The PCB has announced that Haroon Rasheed‘s selection committee is to be disbanded with immediate effect. Rasheed came in for criticism in the post-World T20 report submitted by Waqar Younis – who has since stood down as head coach – and a PCB Special Committee has now determined that new selectors are to be appointed.

The PCB also faces having to name a new T20 captain – after and Shahid Afridi’s resignation – and coach.

The committee has also recommended hiring a psychologist and dietitian.
