LAHORE Former captain Saeed Anwar has turned down Pakistan Cricket Boards offer to become chief selector. I was offered the post of chief selector but I told the PCB chairman that I could not take up the job as I dont think I would be able to do justice to the position, Anwar said. But I have told him that I do want to help the Pakistan team and I can do this as a batting consultant, said the former Test opener, who retired in 2003 and now spends most of his time in religious preaching. I am due to meet the PCB chairman next month and he will tell me in what way I can play a positive role with the Pakistan team. But I personally feel that to be successful in cricket a player needs to be mentally tough and should possess a big heart, he said. Saeed said that he was happy to hear that former teammate and fast bowler Waqar Younis is likely to be appointed as the coach of the national team. I think it would be a great move because he is well respected and has impressive cricketing background and knowledge of modern day requirements, he added. PCB chief selectors position lies vacant after Iqbal Qasims resignation following Pakistans disastrous were tour of Australia, where they were whitewashed in both the Tests as well as the ODI series. Meanwhile, PCB chairman Ijaz Butt has ruled out the appointment of a foreign coach for the national team. Pakistan cricket was plunged into more turmoil after losing all of their international matches against Australia on a tour to the country earlier this year. Although he hasnt been formally sacked coach Intikhab Alams time in charge of the team is almost certainly over, and Butt said: The full-time coach of the team will be from Pakistan. We are working on the concept of having a Pakistani coach and hiring foreign coaches as consultants for shorter period or from series to series. Former South Africa coach Mickey Arthur was believed to be a front runner for the post, but Butt said the PCB had already finalised names and would announce the new coach soon. We have a few former players from Pakistan in mind and will select one of them, he said. Former pace bowler Waqar Younis had said he had already received an offer from the PCB. Butt, however, clarified Waqar was only one of a few options for the job. Waqar is one of the candidates, he said. We have not made a final decision as yet. Former wicketkeepers Moin Khan and Rashid Latif along with Pakistans under-19 coach Ijaz Ahmed, who led the team in Dubai, are also believed to be shortlisted for the post.
