LAHORE - A day after the appointment of the new Pakistan Cricket Board, chief selector Salahuddin Ahmed Sallu has resigned from his first ever paid selector's post. Sallu resigned after fulfilling his last assignment of announcing the Pakistan team for Canada quadrangular tournament. Ijaz Butt on Wednesday took charge of the office formally after the board received the notification from the sports ministry. But details of Sallu's resignations were not clear yet but it was learnt that he stated the new chairman would want to have a new set up and it would be appropriate to leave the place for the chairman to decide. However, there were roumours that Butt wanted to change the selection committee and bring a team of his choice. Several more changes in the PCB set-up are likely to take place as the 73-year-old new cricket chief took over from Dr Nasim Ashraf who resigned from the post on August 18 on the same day when President Pervez Musharraf, patron of the PCB, relinquished power to avoid impeachment from the parliament. "Yes there will be lot of changes in the board. Perhaps the new selectors will be named within few days," he further added. Ijaz would be representing the PCB in the next week's ICC meeting taking place in Dubai. "Hopefully I shall be attending the meeting," he said. Earlier, sports minister Nazmuddin Khan was preparing to represent the board at the ICC meeting. He was also willing to take a few cricketers (including Imran Khan, but because of Imran's pre-occupation, it was possible to carry the legend with him.
