Chairman of the selection committee Inzamam has resigned
Babar Azam’s brigade lost 5 out of 9 in the World Cup
The team did not manage to enter the semi-finals
New Delhi. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is in the mood for a ‘major operation’ after the poor performance of the Pakistan cricket team in the World Cup 2023. Chairman of the selection committee Inzamam ul Haq has already resigned, now the PCB has fired the entire selection committee using the ‘hammer’. According to media reports, team director Mickey Arthur may also be punished and removed from his post.

The team’s bowling coach Morne Markle has already resigned from the post. As the Pakistan team could not make it to the semi-finals, Markel resigned as soon as he returned from India. He was appointed as Pakistan’s bowling coach in June on a 6-month contract. PCB has announced his resignation. It is believed that Babar Azam may also leave the captaincy amid the ongoing upheaval in the country due to poor performance.
Let us tell you that in the World Cup 2023, the Pakistan team could score only 8 points with four wins in 9 matches and finished fifth. Babar Azam’s team could only beat Netherlands, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and New Zealand while losing to India, Australia, South Africa, Afghanistan and England. The Pakistani players were badly disappointed on both the bowling and batting fronts. Bowling was once considered the strength of the Pakistan team, but barring Shaheen Afridi, fast bowlers like Haris Rauf and Hasan Ali and spin bowlers like Shadab Khan and Mohammad Nawaz proved too costly.
