Meanwhile, Inzamam himself has come up with a revelation on the reason behind his resignation from the role of Chief selector. He also spoke about the procedure which has been initiated by the Pakistan Cricket Board regarding the same concern.
“I decided to resign after having a chat with the Board officials regarding the allegations that were made against me. They informed me that they have appointed a five-men committee for an enquiry into this case. Subsequently, I suggested my resignation to PCB officials till the enquiry is underway. Anyway, I am always ready to come again and sit with PCB once this enquiry gets done,” said Inzamam Ul Haq during an exclusive conversation with Samaa TV.
