Pakistans Chief Selector, Inzamam ul Haq has decided to step down from his position due, to a conflict of interest. He cited concerns related to his involvement with “Yazo International Limited,” a company owned by Talha Rehmani, an agent representing cricketers like Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan and Shaheen Afridi.
This connection raised eyebrows in light of disputes over player salaries. As Pakistan struggles in the 2023 Cricket World Cup with two wins out of six matches Inzamams resignation adds another layer of uncertainty to the teams performance.
Despite denying any affiliation with the player agent company and requesting an inquiry from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Inzamam felt compelled to resign due, to questions surrounding his involvement. To tackle the situation the PCB created a committee consisting of five members to investigate the allegations of conflict of interest that were reported in the media.
This step demonstrates the boards dedication, to addressing the problem and ensuring transparency in cricket administration. Meanwhile Pakistans cricket team is facing not a leadership crisis but financial worries. There have been reports stating that some players have not received their salaries for five months, which has only added to the turmoil within the squad.

The committee will submit its report and any recommendations to the PCB…
However Coach Grant Bradburn played down these concerns. Emphasized on the teams determination to turn around their struggling World Cup campaign. With their position in the tournament hanging by a thread and needing a win against Bangladesh to keep their hopes of reaching the semi finals alive immense pressure looms over Pakistans team.
The ongoing disputes regarding payment issues and contract delays have only contributed to the challenges they are currently facing. The PCB has assured that contracts have been sent out to India and players have already signed them paving way for resolving payment issues. Despite all these off field distractions and internal struggles the team remains unwaveringly committed towards making their nation proud, on crickets stage.
