Chief selector Wahab Riaz informed the former captain that he would not be part of his team. However, the PCB reversed its earlier decision on the instructions of caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar. As, he said the selection committee must be free from controversy and that “well-reputed” and “non-controversial” selectors should be appointed. When discussing new officials, the Sultan of Swing stressed the importance of giving them time to prove themselves.

“Give them one year […] Mohammad Hafeez is director of cricket and coach, Riaz is chief selector, Kamran Akmal and co. Give them timeā€”it’s their turn.”

Akram also wished Pakistan good luck in their Test series against Australia.
