Wahab Riaz, Abdul Razzaq sacked from PCB’s selection committee following Pakistan’s World Cup fiasco

Wahab Riaz and Abdul Razzaq have been reportedly sacked from PCB’s (Pakistan Cricket Board) selection committee in the aftermath of Pakistan’s embarrassing exit from the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024.

Razzaq, 44, was recently appointed as a member of both the men’s and the women’s selection committees but will no longer serve the roles.

While the Pakistan Cricket Board has not made any official announcement yet, it will be announced later this week, as per a report by ESPNcricinfo.

Wahab’s exit doesn’t come across as a surprise as the former left-arm pacer was earlier stripped of his chief selector’s title after the board had decided to dissolve the position.

Notably, Wahab was a part of Mohsin Naqvi’s cabinet as caretaker sports minister when the latter was named the caretaker chief minister of Punjab. It is believed that Wahab and Naqvi had cordial relations and hence the former was able to consolidate his position in the selection committee despite the dissolution of the “chief selector” post.
