Since the former captain of Pakistan Misbah ul Haq has resigned from the responsibilities of a Chief Selector, there have been many rumors about different people getting this job.

Many ex-cricketers and analysts have predicted the candidates who should fulfill the unoccupied position and the former wicket-keeper batsman Rashid Latif has given a new suggestion to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). He backed the top women players of Pakistan to be appointed as the Chief Selector of the National men’s team.

“They are promoting the women a lot in the commentary side. Urooj Mumtaz should be made the Chief Selector of the men’s Pakistan side which would get rid of most of the hassle. There is no harm in that,” Latif said.

According to Latif, the PCB was doing a great job in promoting women and they should try to bring in the former women cricketers on top positions in the PCB such as Urooj Mumtaz, Bismah Maroof and Sana Mir. 

“It would be a good idea to give these positions to someone like Sana Mir or Bismah Maroof. They should be promoted in the selection committees. They could even look at both the men’s and women’s teams simultaneously,” he added.

Rashid urged the constitution makers of the PCB to consider this thing seriously and women cricketers should be empowered.

“This should definitely happen. Everyone thinks that a former men’s cricket player will get the position. Why should that happen? Why do we have chairman in our constitution and not chairperson? A woman can easily occupy that slot. Whoever makes the constitution should look into these factors,” he said.
