Mohsin is new Pak chief selector
Former opener Mohsin Khan has been appointed as the new chief selector of the national team by the Pakistan Cricket Board.
The 54-year-old Khan takes over from Iqbal Qasim who had resigned last month following Pakistan's disappointing show in Australia where they were whitewashed in the Test and one-day series.
"I see this job as perhaps the biggest challenge and responsibility of my cricket career," Mohsin said today.
The graceful opener, who played 48 Tests and 75 one-day internationals between 1978 and 1986, said he had agreed to become chief selector only after the PCB chairman Ejaz Butt told him there would be no compromise.
"I spoke to Ejaz Butt who offered me this position and assured me the board will back the selectors on disciplinary issues concerning players," Mohsin said.
Mohsin said that he considers indiscipline as totally unacceptable in cricket.
"We will not tolerate any indiscipline from anyone and when I meet with the Chairman on Thursday I will be further discussing this with him," he added.
Pakistan had lost 0-5 in the one-day series and 0-3 in the Tests.
The PCB has also formed a committee to investigate the defeats in Australia.
