LAHORE The Pakistan Cricket Board has appointed Mohsin Hassan Khan as the new chief selector Pakistan cricket team on Tuesday. The PCB confirmed that Mohsin Hassan Khan has been appointed as the new chief selector. Mohsin Hassan Khan said that he had not been officially told about PCBs decision to make him as chief selector but he has known about this news from the media. He said that he will try to perform his duties sincerely as will try to contribute his energy for the betterment of the team. He will try his best to make Pakistans team perform well in the future. Mohsin, 54, played in 48 Tests and 75 ODIs from 1977 to 1986, retired from the international cricket to pursue a film career. He was the first Pakistani batsman to score double hundred at the Lords. Pakistan have had three chairman selectors in the last 12 months, with Abdul Qadir resigned over the lack of independence in the role and Iqbal Qasim had resigned following Pakistans disastrous tour of Australia. The PCB had earlier offered the position to the former opener Saeed Anwar but the 41-year-old turned down to own the role instead offered his services as a batting consultant. PCB governing board gives green signal to Waqar's appointment The Pakistan Cricket Board governing board gave a seal of approval to the appointment of Waqar Younis as the chief coach of the national team. The former Pakistan captain will take over as the new coach later this month and will be assisted by Ijaz Ahmed as his deputy. PCB chief Ijaz Butt said the board has decided to appoint Waqar as Pakistans coach till the end of 2011. Butt said Waqar will sign a contract with the PCB later this week. Waqar, one of Pakistans most successful fast bowlers of all times, will replace Intikhab Alam, who was the coach during Pakistans disastrous tour of Australia. Waqar was the bowling and fielding consultant during the tour. Ijaz Ahmed, the former Pakistan Test batsman, will assist Waqar as the teams batting and fielding coach. Since 1995, the board has changed the coaches 14 times with former England player Bob Woolmer enjoying the longest stint from 2004-07 until his sudden death during the last World Cup in the West Indies. The PCB has also announced that foreign consultants would be appointed to assist the new coach on a series-to-series basis when required. Waqar, who was a bowling coach with the national side from 2006-07, said he was happy with the arrangement and plans to fly to Pakistan next week for his new stint. Regarded as one of the finest exponents of reverse swing, Waqar formed a formidable fast-bowling pairing with Wasim Akram, taking 373 Test wickets at an average of 23.56 and 416 at 23.84 in One-day Internationals. The PCB also appointed security managers, who will accompany the Pakistani team on its foreign tours apart from ensuring security for the board members. The decision came after the appointment of four new governing boards members in the PCB during a meeting. The PCB has also decided to appoint a chief financial officer to look after the boards sagging financial accounts. Interacting with media persons after the meeting, PCB chairman Ijaz Butt said Pakistan cricket had suffered an 'irreversible damage after the terror attack against the visiting Sri Lankan cricket team. Its almost a year since (March 3, 2009) the audacious terror attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team bus took place, but the PCBs inquiry committee, which was set-up to after the causes of the attack, is yet to submit its final report. Butt further said that they have also finalised the list of players, who will receive central contracts but added that the details will be announced later.
